dB Control Enhances Contract Manufacturing Services with HV Injection Molding, HALT/HASS Testing Capabilities

ISO 9001:2008-Certified Contract Manufacturer is One-Stop Shop for Build-to-Print Assembly, Testing High-voltage Transformers, Power Supplies for TWT Amplifiers, Medical Equipment

FREMONT, Calif., Dec. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- dB Control has added high-voltage (HV) injection molding, highly accelerated life test (HALT) and highly accelerated stress screening (HASS) contract manufacturing services. These services – in addition to winding, encapsulation, conformal coating and more – are available for the following products:

  • High-voltage transformers for military and commercial applications
  • High-voltage power supplies for military and commercial TWT Amplifiers
  • High- and low-voltage power supplies for industrial X-ray equipment and various medical equipment
  • High-voltage connectors and cables


In order to meet stringent aerospace performance requirements in complex, densely-packed electronic assemblies, dB Control has developed and qualified new proprietary HV injection molding processes.  These processes are easily scalable to support short lead times and dynamic scheduling requirements. In addition, to accommodate custom HALT/HASS reliability testing application profiles, high-temperature slew rates of 60°C per minute can be combined with vibration testing levels of up to 60 gRMS, with six degrees of freedom for design margin testing.

"No matter how stringent the specs, our team can solve assembly and test challenges, ensure reliability and get your products delivered on time. We have more than 20 years of specialized contract manufacturing experience for an impressive list of customers – including branches of the US Armed Forces, well-known defense and commercial contractors and more," said dB Control Vice President of Business Development Steve Walley. "Plus, because of dB Control's low employee turnover, our technicians and engineers retain a highly specialized, repeatable skillset, which results in a more reliable product for our customers."

In addition to holding several certifications that help ensure reliability, dB Control is also ISO 9001:2008 certified and conducts first article inspection in accordance with AS 9102. More information is available in the company's recently published contract manufacturing brochure.
