Our automotive compliant crystal oscillators (XO) are designed to meet the stringent requirements for automotive applications and differentiated by a ‘Q’ in their part number. They are manufactured in facilities certified to the rigorous IATF 16949 standard, and capable of customer audit to VDA6.3. These parts are all supported by PPAP (Production Part Approval Process) documentation, thereby meeting all the requirements of the automotive electronics industry.
In addition, all of the automotive compliant crystal oscillators (XO) have been qualified using both AECQ-200 and QAP-81 to cover both the quartz resonator and the XO IC rather than using AEC-Q100 (defined for IC only). We plan to begin phasing in the AECQ-104 qualification standard for our new automotive compliant XO products during 2021, it will however NOT re-qualify previously AECQ-200 + QAP-81 qualified products to AEC-Q104 (main differences between the AECQ-200 + QAP-81 qualification standards and AECQ-0104 qualification standard are the quantities tested and the addition of an X-Ray check).
