Subject: USB Products Failure Analysis Policy Change Description of Change: Cypress is changing its policy for failure analysis of USB products to only accept units for failure analysis if the customer has successfully completed an ABA swap test1 for non-WLCSP/BGA packages or chip isolation test for WLCSP/BGA packages to confirm the failure was caused by the Cypress device. Additional information to replicate and solve the customer issue in a timely manner will be required. Benefit of Change: By implementing this policy change, Cypress will better be able to respond to the confirmed issues customers are observing. This policy change is required due to the large percentage of NTF (No Trouble Found) results on USB failure analysis cases. Approximate Implementation Date: This change will be implemented effective with the date of this notification.
