Criteria Labs


Criteria Labs is a full turn-key solution and service provider located in Austin Texas USA. For the last 20 years Criteria Labs has specialized in providing high-reliability package design, wafer probe, ceramic package assembly (Hybrids, MCMs, chip on board all in our class 100 clean room), reliability qualification and upscreening for space/military applications, and RF and electrical testing and device characterization. Our versatile capabilities allows us to service large programs and large customers as well as small lot R&D builds and low to mid-level production for customers around the world.


Package Design Services

Partner with Criterial Labs to design your next RF hybrid Multi Chip Module (MCM), Integrated Microwave Assembly (IMA), System In Package (SIP) as well as test boards and stress cards.

Package Assembly Services

Criteria Labs provides production and prototype package assembly services to military, space, semiconductor and photonics companies.   Criteria Labs has extensive build to print capabilities to manufacture complex products ranging from ceramic LTCC & HTCC hermetic assemblies, to high reliability printed circuit boards, single chip and multichip hybrid modules for high frequency RF applications. Criteria Labs offers a full array of IC packaging services from wafer dicing to assembly of high power GaAs / GaN RF modules and high temperature MCM’s.  In support of our defense customers, we are an ITAR-registered facility, accredited Trusted Supplier and DLA MIL-PRF-38535 certified assembly mfg.  Our Class 100 clean rooms provide the ultimate in particulate free assembly and ESD protection.

High Temperature Design and Package Assembly

Designing high temperature electronics requires extensive knowledge of components, assembly materials, substrates and high temperature component derating factors.  Criteria Labs can package monolithic, ceramic hybrid MCM’s and high reliability polyimide chip and wire assemblies intended for high temperature applications up to 250C.

Electrical Test and Device Characterization

RF, GaAs, GaN, Silicon and Photonics Testing


Criteria Labs can test a wide range of technologies from RF, high pin count digital parts, complex analog parts, lasers and photo detectors including silicon carbide (SiC) and GaN power switching devices.  Criteria Labs has LTX Credence Diamond D10 (384 pin PMU) Keysight 33xx PNAX RF network analyzers, National instruments PXI test chassis, Keithley SMUs and other test equipment to provide a 360 test solution. Criteria Labs experienced team of test engineers can support first silicon debug to high volume production for a wide range of device technologies from digital, analog, mixed signal and memory in both wafer sort and final package part testing.

Wafer Probe

Criteria Labs is the only US based test services company to perform all wafer probe in a class 1000 clean room.  Wafer cleanliness and prevention of particulate contamination improves probe and package assembly yields.  Criteria Labs can support all wafer probe services, including software development, probe card design and fabrication, debug and production probing.

Device Qualification

Criteria Labs provides stress based reliability qualification services to semiconductor manufacturers, military, aerospace and OEM’s.  Criteria Labs experienced Reliability Engineers can create qualification plans and perform testing to meet your requirements with strict adherence to applicable JEDEC and MIL-STD-883, MIL-STD-750, MIL-STD-202, JEDEC, AEC-Q100/Q200 and TELCORDIA specifications.
