Dane-Elec goes for gold

Top level Intel gong awarded to manufacturer/distributor

Dane-Elec has become the first memory module vendor to net a place on Intel's new Gold certification programme. CMTL (Computer Memory Test Labs), the outfit responsible for testing companies for the scheme, said Dane-Elec had the dependability and size to qualify. The Gold programme is a step ahead of Intel's Advanced Memory Module Qualification Programme. It aims to ensure Intel customers always have qualified memory modules available, whatever Intel product they buy. To get a place on the programme, manufacturers must ship at least 250,000 Intel-qualified modules per month and build in-house, as well as being ISO 9000 compliant. John Deters, CMTL president, said: "There is only a handful of memory module vendors in the industry with the ability to qualify, and even less with the resources to participate in this program. Dane-Elec has both." ®
