Panasonic components specified as AEC-Q200 Compliant are consistently designed into automotive systems. However, today’s Design Engineers are specifying AEC-Q200 components to meet the high-quality standards of devices beyond automotive applications.
Parts that pass the AEC tests are qualified, high-quality components that can be used in critical environments. Therefore, there should be no need to conduct other component level tests saving both time and expense.
Current AEC-Q200 Standard documents developed by the AEC Component Technical Committee are available on the AEC website. The AEC is an organization based in the U.S. that sets qualification standards for the supply of components in the automotive electronics industry.
If your next device requires components that meet the Automotive Electronics Council (AEC) requirements for components suitable for harsh automotive environments, think Panasonic!
