Quality & Reliability

SMIC has built comprehensive quality and reliability assurance and control systems into our processes and services from technology development to production. In addition, we have various labs and analytical tools to perform chemical and material analysis, product failure analysis and yield enhancement, reliability qualification and monitoring, as well as tool calibration.

To ensure a consistent level of quality and flexibility for our customers, SMIC uses a "One Mega Fab" concept whereby all equipment and process recipes are tuned to achieve the same wafer acceptance test (WAT) and yield results at any of our fabs.

Quality & Reliability System
To achieve high-quality delivery of our services, SMIC integrates quality standards and procedures through our entire operations chain. These include:

Built-in reliability in our technology development and production processes
Process reliability monitoring during manufacturing
Strict quality control of incoming raw materials and outgoing wafers
Stringent monitoring of in-line processes
A built-in reliability database (Built-in Reliability Diagnosis System or BIRDS) that tracks wafer, package and product level reliability through the development, qualification and production stages
Implementing statistical process control (SPC) and wafer-level reliability control in mass production for fast feedback and continuous improvement.
Product quality monitoring
IQC: Incoming Quality Control
SQA: Supplier Quality Assurance
WLRC: Wafer Level Reliability Control
OQA: Outgoing Quality Assurance
SPC: Statistical Process Control

Quality Management SystemThe pursuit of quality is a continuous effort at SMIC. To maintain a high level of quality in our work and processes, SMIC emphasizes clear and concise process definitions, standardized procedures, well-defined responsibilities, detailed documentation of customer requirements, wafer performance and production analysis, and a high level of customer transparency.

As part of our quality management system, SMIC continuously works to ensure:
Customer requirements and internal quality standards are fully communicated, understood and adhered to;
On-time delivery of high-quality services; and
Continuous improvement in service and product quality and reliability through the implementation of our PDCA (plan, do, check, act) steps, together with internal and external customer feedback.
As a reflection of our dedication towards continuous service and quality enhancement, we have achieved ISO 9001,
ISO/TS 16949 and TL 9000 certifications at all our fabs.

Information Security Management SystemTo protect our organization’s core business and improve competitiveness, SMIC maintains a comprehensive information security management system, including three basic components: employee management, information technology application, and rules and policies establishment.

As part of our Information Security Management System, SMIC continuously works to ensure:
Always prioritize the security of customer information;
Properly protect all information assets; and
Conduct risk management to ensure business continuity and minimize losses if the information system is affected.
As a reflection of our dedication to information security management, we have achieved ISO27001 certifications at all our Fabs.
