ON Semiconductor has opened a Circuit Protection Applications Test Laboratory in Shanghai, China to support customers in Asia-Pacific and help speed their time-to-market. The lab offers testing, problem resolution and consultancy on issues relating to international regulatory standards, with a focus on overvoltage protection for portable consumer products and telecommunications equipment.

The international regulatory standards include IEC 61000-4-4, IEC 61000-4-5, IEC 61000-4-11, ANSI/IEEE C62.41, UL 864, UL 1449, FCC Part 68, ITU Rec. K.17, K.20, K.21, K.45 Telcordia GR1089-CORE. The lab will evaluate electronic components, subsystems or end products through a variety of ESD and surge event tests to establish susceptibility to failure and damage. Findings on tested components and product performance will be reported back to the customer with suggestions and recommendations on how to better comply with requirements.

In addition to extensive testing capabilities, the lab will support customers with applications trouble-shooting, protection device benchmarking, characterization and proposals for new protection devices.

"With a Circuit Protection Applications Test Laboratory in Asia-Pacific, ON Semiconductor is not only geographically closer to its customers, but is now in a position to more effectively provide a variety of testing and consultancy services," said Gary Straker, director of ON Semiconductor's Protection Products Business "The lab will assist customers who need to deal with regulatory and government standards relating to circuit protection applications. The test capabilities we are making available will save our Asia-Pacific customers both time and money, which will ultimately enable customers to take their products to market faster."

ON Semiconductor guarantees customer confidentiality on all testing projects. Procedures for restricted and authorized access to testing have been put into place. Customers have the option of supervising the testing of their own products. Non-disclosure agreements are available and all samples and test data are returned to the customers.

"China is the fastest growing market for ON Semiconductor," said M.K. Mak, ON Semiconductor vice president of marketing for Standard Products Group for Asia Pacific. "It was a strategic move to house our second Circuit Protection Applications Test Laboratory here in China. This move further demonstrates the company's commitment to our customers in China and throughout the Asia-Pacific region."
