An Experienced, Dedicated, Hi-Rel Semiconductor Packaging Team

Hi-Rel surface mount packaging of semiconductors is an art form at KCB. We’re proud to be one of a handful of dedicated design teams in this field and the only one with an unprecedented level of manufacturing, testing, and screening services in-house. We thrive on multi-chip and multi-function challenges and are also pleased to offer a growing library of proven product solutions. With experience in all technologies — such as GaN, GaAs, and Silicon — we can address your problems with the most appropriate approach.

In addition to cutting-edge custom and standard solutions, you can also look to KCB when end-of-life and obsolescence issues arise. For examples of how we’ve answered the call, see our case studies on our experience page. 
 

KCB's History

KCB Solutions was incorporated in July 2003. We received our original AS9100 Rev B certification in January 2009, and have successfully completed the transition and certification to Revision C. The company is DOD registered and ITAR compliant.

The company began with supporting obsolescence components for Defense and Aerospace programs.  The initial activity included procuring materials through manufacturing and test operations and delivering fully compliant devices against customer specifications. Back then, and to this day, our team was focused on sourcing the most highly-reliable, high performance active semiconductor surface mount components available.  Our semiconductor industry connections are thus deep and thorough.

Our Total Quality Management System was put in place early in our inception to specifically address the Defense and Aerospace market. The system addresses all aspects of our business including our product realization process, risk mitigation and manufacturing systems.
