About PURE

PURE is an association of European equipment manufacturers, concerned by quality and reliability. Its members commit themselves to share data and results linked with the use of commercial active and passive components in rugged environments.

We share construction analysis and reliability test results and perform technical audits to qualify commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) products according to our qualification reference documents. The PURE qualification does not allow the use of a component outside the limits specified by the manufacturer in the datasheet and does not require a specific manufacturing / screening process flow.

Thus, the PURE approval guarantees by a technical expert decision that the component is at the best of the state of the art regarding manufacturing practices.

We manage a list of manufacturing lines and packages qualified for rugged environments.  The PURE qualification engages PURE members only and is not to be used outside PURE organization (www.purecouncil.org).
