The new energy vehicles are driving rapid growth in automotive electronics demand. Comparing to the traditional cars , new energy vehicles require more analog ICs because of the increasing features from motorization and intelligence ,e.g., electrification, smart cockpit, telematics, ADAS, infotainment and lighting.
The vehicles require higher reliability standard analog ICs. In order to comply with that, Runic technology is collaborating with wafer foundries that areI ATF16949 certified with mature AEC-Q100 process, as well as industry leading assembly factories, such as ASEN Semiconductors Co, etc., in order to develop automotive grade products that meet AEC-Q100 and MSD1. In addition, Runic is also adopting ISO26262 ASILD safety standard system under the guidance of TÜV Rheinland.
AEC-Q100 is a failure mechanism based stress test qualification for packaged integrated circuits used in automotive applications. This specification has been established by the Automotive Electronics Council (AEC) to define part-qualification and quality-system standards for packaged integrated circuits used in the automotive industry. In order to ensure proper function in harsh environment, electronics used in automotive industry has to meet higher quality and reliability standard that is defined in AEC-Q100.
Runic Technology is continuously pursuing higher quality management systems. We have established DQE, SQE, CQE, QS to improve quality management on design, manufacture and test, which will result in higher product quality.
