About Our

Founded in 1996 Abstract Electronics distributes and sources electronic components and hardware for a wide variety of commercial and military OEMs and CEMs. In addition to furnishing product from our growing list of franchised and manufacture direct lines, we can provide sourcing services when you find yourself faced with requirements for long lead time and/or obsolete hard-to-find items.

Quality Control is the prime focus at Abstract Electronics. Our AS9120 certified Quality Management System provides the framework for consistent and reliable transactions. Our inspection process is based on IDEA STD1010 and includes a rigorous counterfeit detection process. Inspection personnel are continually trained in the latest detection methods and our memberships with ERAI and GIDEP keep us informed of the latest sub-standard and re-called parts. Most often, we can supply products with full manufacturer's traceability, airworthiness, or test certifications.

Our In-House
Inspection Process

Our experienced and knowledgeable inspection staff performs detailed inspections on all incoming and outgoing product. Inspection criteria for a wide range of product types are pre-established and based upon the IDEA STD 1010, AS6081, CCAP101, and AS5553 standards.


AS6081 inspections include x-ray inspections to ensure lots have consistent internal construction.


The use of x-ray fluorescence allows inspectors to verify the elemental composition of inspected items. 

The custom Abstract Electronics ERP Receiving Inspection module provides inspectors with up to date information regarding product specifications, descriptions and includes internet links for products with ERAI counterfeit notifications, keeping our inspectors better informed increases the effectiveness of our inspections.

Solderability Testing:
Solderability testing is performed in-house on AS6081 based inspections and when required by customer.

Surface Testing:
Four inspection methods are used in the examination of integrated circuit surfaces. During visual inspections, inspectors subject products to acetone solvent, mechanical scraping, and microscope examination using up to 200x magnification.  Additionally, AS6081 inspections include hot solvent testing using Dynasolve 750 solution.



Programmable parts are tested on one of our two program testers. This helps ensure customers receive product which is free of programs and ready to use. The erasable product is run through an AQL sample of full fill random program, verify, erase, and blank check cycle to verify product function.


AS6081 based inspections include die verification. Die inspection is performed to ensure proper markings and identifications, wire bond quality, and the absence of factory reject dots. Abstract maintains a large historical database of die images which are used for reference.

Standard Inspections:

Our two standard levels of inspections provide customers a choice of inspection to fit their needs. Customers can also design their own Custom Inspection Plan to meet specific order requirements.
