Introduced almost five years ago and first implemented on 29 November 1985, MIL-STD-1772 has had a profound impact upon the military hybrid microelectronics industry. Through their efforts to qualify their facilities to MIL-STD-1772, a growing number of hybrid manufacturers have proven their understanding of and their compliance to the applicable portions of MIL-M-38510 and MIL-STD-883. This has led to a wholesale raising of the “Quality Consciousness” in the hybrid microelectronics industry and it has fostered a higher degree of customer confidence in the hybrid facilities which have qualified. Four years since its implementation, it can be stated that MIL-STD-1772 has accomplished its purpose of assuring the highest level of reliability possible in the products of qualified hybrid manufacturers. This paper is not only a survey of how this has been accomplished, but it also discusses the effects that the MIL-Specs continue to have upon the design and manufacture of military hybrid microelectronics.
