Part of being an ISO 9001:2008 certified/ASA-100 accredited supplier is adhering to the rules of the federal acquisition process. We at ASAP Semiconductor are known for upholding these guidelines, including working with and tracking records of parts via federally-assigned National Stock Numbers. Through our proprietary website ASAP Aerospace, clients servicing the Aerospace, Aviation, Military and Defense sectors can explore our expansive inventory of in-production and obsolete stock.
To ensure consistency in the acquisition process, the U.S. Department of Defense created a system that distinctively and permanently identifies the items that it purchases. This system, termed the National Stock Number (NSN), consists 13 digits which are broken down into the 2 following identifying subcategories:
For example, an indicator light we supply at ASAP Semiconductor has a 13-digit NSN of 6210-00-001-1431. The FSCG is represented by 6210, and the NIIN by 000001431.
Likewise, the FSCG and NIIN can be broken down even further into the following classifying subcategories:
For the above annunciator, the FSG is represented by 62, and the FSC by 10.
For the above actuator assembly, the NCB is denoted by 00, USA’s country code.
One FSG we at ASAP Semiconductor stock is FSG 62 - Lighting Fixtures and Lamps. Manufacturers for FSG 62 that we carry include:
