Your Premier Electronic Components Supply Chain Partner
We are the best-kept secret in the electronic component industry. When companies are unable to fulfill their requirements through the normal franchise channels, they turn to 4 Star Electronics for immediate solutions.
We understand that our customers need more than just a supplier; they need a strategic partner in their supply chain, so we strive to be that and more. We consistently utilize our in-stock inventory and global network of suppliers to reduce your procurement cycles, lower transaction costs and provide quality electronic components at competitive prices.
4 Star Electronics has been an industry leader in supplying obsolete, hard to find, long lead-time and end-of-life (EOL) electronic components since our inception in 2001. We offer one of the broadest line cards in the industry, with over 50 million dollars of ready-to-ship, in-stock inventory from over 2,800 different manufacturers. If the parts you need are not in our ready-to-ship inventory, we have access to over 100 million line items from our controlled vendor network comprised of inventory from Manufacturers, Franchise Distributors, OEM/CM Excess Inventory, Independent Distributors, and other trusted sources throughout the world.
Obsessively Committed To Quality Assurance
We have a singular focus on our Quality Assurance capabilities, and have been recognized as one of the leaders in the industry for our best-in-class Counterfeit Mitigation Program. The inspection process that we follow for each product is based on the IDEA-STD-1010B, CCAP-101, AS5553, and AS6081 standards. The inspections are performed in-house at our ANSI/ESD S20.20 certified lab, by IDEA-ICE-3000 certified inspectors.
4 Star Electronics has earned many quality system certifications, such as; AS9120A, ISO 9001:2008, IDEA-QMS-9090 and FAA-AC00-56A. We're equipped with state-of-the-art equipment including digital cameras and microscopes at every workstation, XRF analyzers for material composition and RoHS verification, programmers, a reel-to-reel real-time X-Ray machine for 100% inspection, mechanical and chemical decapsulation tools for die inspection, and we are proud to be the first distributor in the world to incorporate the Covisus DTEK Quantitative Surface Analyzer into the inspection process.
Trusted By Many
4 Star Electronics is a trusted supplier to many global organizations, including government agencies such as the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA). As a member of the coveted Qualified Suppliers List of Distributors (QSLD) since 2011, we've been providing fully traceable material to the DLA for years. In addition, we have also been certified and placed on the DLA's Qualified Testing Suppliers List (QTSL), which allows us to sell fully validated and tested non-traceable material to the DLA.
As part of the certification, our systems and processes have been audited to meet or exceed the requirements of JESD31, JESD625, and AS6081. The QTSL is an exclusive group and an important part of the supply chain. This is due to the fact that a large volume of semiconductor and microcircuit components used by the DLA are obsolete with no traceable inventory available. 4 Star has also partnered with Applied DNA Sciences to provide in-house DNA marking for Federal Supply Class (FSC) 5962 components, as required by DLA regulations.
These certifications and registrations are only a small part of the foundation upon which we have built 4 Star Electronics. Our management team is comprised of industry veterans, with decades of proven experience in the distribution of electronic components. You can rest assured that when you partner with 4 Star Electronics, you're working with the industry elite.
Please contact our offices when you are unable to acquire the obsolete electronic components you need through your normal franchise channels.
