The ISO 26262 standard was formulated in 2011 in response to the rising demand for safety performance along with the increasing automation and functionality required in the global automotive market. In recent years, ADAS development has accelerated, and to ensure the highest level of safety in vehicles it is necessary to achieve safety targets at the semiconductor level that make up automotive components.
ROHM has already adopted a vertically-integrated production system, from development to manufacturing, within the group, making it possible to incorporate a high level of quality into each process while achieving accurate traceability and an optimized supply chain.
ROHM has also established dedicated production lines for automotive products and implemented product development that conforms to standards related to quality management systems (IATF 16949) and electronic component reliability (AEC-Q100/101). And going forward, the company will apply our ISO 26262 certified development process to products such as power supply and timing controller ICs used in applications for functional safety.
