DFI is a Taiwanese manufacturer and developer of high performance embedded computing technology. Since 1981 DFI has been leading the industry with cutting-edge boards and systems designed for embedded applications.
Impulse works closely with DFI to ensure they offer strict revision control and long life availability on their entire product range. DFI utilise the latest technology platforms and manufacturing techniques to produce cost-effective solutions for use in the medical industry, ATM/POS devices, industrial control, information kiosks, security & surveillance systems and digital signage applications.
DFI are committed to strict revision control and this is reflected in the way they use the same components across their entire product range. DFI ensure that all customers are notified in advance of any upcoming product changes. When a change to a critical component is required, DFI perform extensive tests to ensure minimal interruption to customers when transitioning across to a new revision.
DFI ensures that their products will be available for a minimum of 3~5 years and keep sufficient stock of key components to minimise the risk of discontinuation. When key components become unavailable they issue an End of Life (EOL) notice 6 months prior to discontinuation. This gives customers plenty of time to test new hardware and transition over to a new platform.
DFI follow a strict ISO 14001 & ISO 9001 Quality Management System with QC080000 to ensure customers receive only the highest quality of products. This process includes full evaluations of the product from functionality/environmental/shipping tests down to lifecycle analysis and quality reliability tests.
DFI have a full in-house manufacturing centre that is designed to ensure stability and quality control. They have invested in technologies such as Surface Mount Technology (SMT), In-line Circuit Test Machines (ICT), Automated Optical Inspection (AOI) and Manual Insertion (MI) production lines. With these capabilities, DFI is able to meet the demands of off-the-shelf products, custom design services and EMS in various industries.
Impulse is the leading UK Distributor for DFI and can supply you a comprehensive range of DFI products. We can provide you with flexible delivery schedules and quantity pricing to suit your application requirements and deadlines.
After visiting DFI’s facility in Taiwan in 2011, it was clear to see a synergy between DFI and our own business philosophy. Both organisations are focused on offering quality board-level and packaged embedded products and we are confident that our partnership will help to compliment our current range of industrial computing products.
DFI have an impressive approach to managing revision and obsolescence control which has been tried and tested since they first went into business back in 1981. After becoming DFI’s official UK distributor in late 2011, we look forward to tapping into the wealth of experience DFI have in the embedded computing marketplace and Impulse will work closely with DFI to offer innovative products to our UK based customers.
