As a fabless semiconductor company, we design our components in-house and outsource the fabrication, assembly, and testing to specialized manufacturers across the globe. The supply chain management team oversees our fabless production process. They coordinate with our engineering operations teams, who manage process and package development, test program development, and quality, in alignment with our ISO 9001 certified quality management system. This manufacturing strategy allows us to focus on designing innovative components, while minimizing fixed costs and capital expenditures and giving us access to advanced manufacturing facilities. It also enables the company to develop and maintain long-term relationships with tier-one suppliers to source multiple leading-edge technologies.
Cirrus Logic 质量承诺的一个重要组成部分是与供应商之间以基于诚信的合作关系。公司与拥有共同价值观和高标准的一级供应商建立并维持长期关系。我们希望这类供应商能够创造安全的工作环境，尊重员工，同时采用对环境和社会负责的制造流程。这些密切关系有助于我们减轻潜在的声誉风险，建立客户忠诚度，并交付质量卓越的产品。
Cirrus Logic is an affiliate member of the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA), a nonprofit coalition dedicated to corporate social responsibility in global supply chains. All of our key tier-one suppliers must acknowledge their obligations to comply with our Supplier Code of Conduct, which was developed using inputs from both the RBA Code of Conduct and more stringent customer requirements. Cirrus Logic 根据供应商行为准则来甄选和管理我们的供应商网络。Various methods are then used to manage, measure and drive continuous improvement within these relationships, including quarterly reviews, scorecards, annual audits, supplier development goals, process yields and overall quality performance.
我们鼓励一级供应商也要求其主要供应商达到相同的运营标准。公司会尽可能以切合实际的方式利用 RBA 工具和举措，从而建立负责任的供应链。In addition to abiding by the Supplier Code of Conduct, all of our tier-one foundries and assembly and test suppliers also maintain ISO 14001 environmental management system certificates. 这表明他们致力于负责任地管理其环境影响。
Cirrus Logic 与供应链合作伙伴紧密合作，支持负责任的材料采购。Each year, to be transparent, we leverage our membership in the Responsible Minerals Initiative to prepare a Conflict Minerals Report that summarizes our due diligence efforts. You can find our current Conflict Minerals Report.
