Customer Notice No: CN1505
Customer Notification Only – No Action Required
Subject: Date Code Policy – Plastic Package (non-hermetic) Products
Please be advised that Microsemi SoC Corp. is now setting a policy regarding date codes for all shipments of plastic package
products; no policy has previously existed.
Microsemi SoC Corp. will ship plastic package parts with date codes up to 4 years old, effective immediately.
If you or your customer require product with a date code less than 4 years old, potential orders will be evaluated on a case-bycase basis. Please note that if exceptions to this policy are made, 1) Minimum Order Quantities will apply, 2) orders will be
Non-Cancelable/Non-Returnable, 3) requested delivery dates cannot be pushed out once booked, and, 4) a price adder per
unit will apply as this is a non-standard requirement; please work with your Microsemi Sales Representative.
Studies by our Packaging Engineering group have confirmed that there are no quality or reliability issues with units from this
date code time period. Information regarding storage and shelf life of plastic package products may be found in our website at
