Translation - Japanese: AEC-Q100の意味 – KBA220733 - Community Translated (JA)

Question: What is the definition and purpose of AEC-Q100?

Answer:

AEC-Q100 is a set of qualification test sequences for integrated circuits developed by the Automotive Electronics Council (AEC). AEC-Q100 establishes common part-qualification and quality-system standards for automotive electronics, and is the industry-standard specification that outlines the recommended new product and major change qualification requirements and procedures for packaged integrated circuits embedded into automotive applications.

See AEC-Q100 specifications at http://www.aecouncil.com/AECDocuments.html.

Products that are qualified for automotive applications meet the AEC-Q100 requirements and may be labeled with the following automotive temperature grades in Table 1.

Table 1. Automotive Temperature Grades

NOTE: Cypress currently offers Grade-1, Grade-2, and Grade-3 as AEC-Q100 ordering options.
