Vishay’s Automotive Grade Process

Vishay has incorporated key automotive industry quality initiatives into an Automotive Grade product line. The goal is zero defects. The requirements cover design, qualification, and manufacturing, and are used to continuously improve Vishay products and processes. Products fulfilling the Vishay Automotive Grade requirements, described below, earn our Automotive Grade stamp on their datasheets.

Design

  • Robust Design Policy: new and modified products are designed using design rules, DFMEA, and lessons learned. The design rules ensure Automotive Grade products are robust through manufacturing and assembly. Testing to failure confirms that design margins meet the demands of automotive use.
  • Safe Launch: Vishay’s Safe Launch Policy ensures that everything from design through production roll-out happens according to plan. Process corner evaluation, yield analysis, process capability review, and reliability testing are all incorporated.

Qualification

  • AEC-Q100, AEC-Q101, AEC-Q102, AEC-Q200 qualified: Automotive Grade products are qualified to the latest AEC qualification standards and presented for approval using PPAP.

Manufacturing

  • IATF16949 Facility: all Automotive Grade products are produced in facilities certified to IATF16949.
  • Maverick Lot Program: the Maverick Lot Program employs part average testing (PAT), statistical yield limit (SYL), and statistical bin limit (SBL) according to AEC-Q001 and AEC-Q002 to identify statistically different parts and lots.
  • Periodic Verification to AEC Requirements (Reliability Monitoring): product families are verified to AEC Stress Test Qualification standards every two years.

Continuous Improvement

  • Error Proofing: error proofing is performed during the entire process to identify and eliminate potential causes of defects.
  • Lessons Learned / Look Across: all continual improvement actions are linked to lessons learned and look across programs to ensure improvement everywhere in the company.
