SAN DIEGO, Calif. — September 15, 2016—AEM, Inc., announces
the HRB-US Series of high-reliability ferrite beads that meet the stringent
requirements of the Defense Supply Center Columbus (DSCC) specification 03024.
AEM is the only ferrite chip manufacturer whose parts are approved by the
Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) to the DSCC 03024 specification. The innovative
HRB-US process up-screens commercially available parts utilizing AEM’s
proprietary techniques to selectively certify additional ferrite beads to the
DSCC standard. The HRB-US Series provides an effective means to meet the
growing demand of high-reliability applications.


“AEM’s in-house manufactured HRB / 03024 series of
ferrite chips are the gold standard for high-reliability,” said AEM’s Marketing
Director, Scott Sentz. “Our new HRB-US Series expands our inventory of Hi-Rel
components that approach DSCC 03024 reliability through an intricate
up-screening of the highest-quality commercial devices. They are also backed by
our traceable in-house materials and processes.”

AEM’s HRB-US Series components begin as full
reel ferrite bead lots acquired through OEM approved distribution channels and
are traceable to selected manufacturers of commercial devices. The devices pass
through pre- and post-screening processes while undergoing AEM’s proprietary Tin-Lead
conversion. The devices are then subjected to DSCC 03024 Group A, B and C
testing. Finally, the parts are assigned a new HRB-US part number and are tape
and reel packaged with an AEM lot number and date code.
