Part Markings

Hi,

Let's say I have 2-5 different designs using the SLG46620G part for example, but I want to differentiate these parts for our customers. How would I go about remarking the IC's with our custom part numbers + logo? Is this something Dialog can/would do or is there another solution we can use for now? I would like to avoid any kind of manual griding process, or advanced automated laser engraving machinery with a large financial burden for obvious reasons.

RobertLengyel, 

RobertLengyel, 

Thank you for your question,

All GPAKs with the customers' designs have their own PartNumber, which is marked on the top of the IC. Since SLG46620G is the TSOP package, the PartNumber written on the top of it will include five digits "XXXXX". The digits are assigned by DialogSemiconductors and they are unique for every particular IC. However, the smaller packages can't fit the five digits, so additionally the IC will be given two-letter code, which accords to the previously assigned PartNumber.

Also, there will be marked the design revision. Typically, it consists of two letters, which differentiate the project revisions.

So you don't need to add some extra marks, the ICs will be marked and you can easily distinguish them. 

Best regards,

Hi,

Hi,

Thank you for the good response. This is important information; I am glad there is a way to distinguish the parts. 

Our intention is for the Dialog semi products to become the platform for us to build our products. The power and flexibility is unmatched. 
However, some of our products might be just "single chip only", and thus it is desirable to have our own custom logos + PN's engraved on it.
What would you suggest here?

Robert

RobertLengyel, 

Unfortunately, we can't provide you the product with your own logos and PN engraved on it. If we did start to accept custom marking specs from our customers, I would be concerned that the quality level would not be as high, as we would be forcing many people inside Dialog to do something that was non-standard, which always adds extra risk for mistakes. The production processes are optimized for the highest throughput and lowest cost, so we do not allow for any other marking style other than our own.

Best regards,

Hi,

Hi,

Thank you for the response. I understand Dialog cannot supply custom logo's + part numbers.

What would you recommend for us to do in this situation? 
Are you able to refer us to some third party vendors that can do the custom markings?

Hi Robert,

Hi Robert,

I recommend you using the Dialog logo and Part Number, any additional interferences in package look can lead to unexpected issues. We proud that our products have high quality, which is reached by the iterative verification process and any further operations could decrease the quality.

Best regards.

Hi,

Thank you for the response.
I will have to reevaluate our core idea here to be in line with your recommendation.
