Products for Automotive

Our ICs for automotive achieve high-voltage resistance and low supply current by our own CMOS process and circuit design technologies.
In order to offer safe and secure ICs to our customers, we conduct reliability tests meeting the standards of AEC-Q100, establishment of sales and manufacturing traceability systems, and strict quality management.
Keeping in step with the electrification of cars, we will provide our customers with a wide variety of ICs that can support safety and security.

Quality Class for Automotive

Three quality ranks are prepared for products for automotive according to applications. Choose the quality rank products that best suit the usage.

Quality Rank Applications Quality
Test Temperature Product Traceability
Rank 1 Safety-critical Parts
(Driving Control System)
R8 –40°C to 125°C
–40°C to 110°C
Low, 25°C, High Sales,
Rank 2 General Equipment
(Body System)
K –40°C to 125°C Low, 25°C, High
J –40°C to 105°C
H –40°C to 85°C
Rank 3 Accessories A –40°C to 125°C
–40°C to 105°C
–40°C to 85°C
25°C, High

Please refrain from using consumer grade products in automotive applications, and also from using automotive grade products in applications except automotive ones.
The rank 1 (R8) products offer the highest quality obtained by the enhanced process inspection and quality control at manufacturing.
When adopting the rank 2 products, choose one from three quality classes of K, J, and H. We accept only one quality class per product.
The operating temperature range differs by product. Refer to the datasheet for details.
