Vehicles from cars to SUVs, motorcycles to trucks, internal combustion engines to battery electric all have two things in common. We depend on them to safely and reliably move people and cargo and with each generation, they are becoming more complex and loaded with electronics. The memory components used in these automotive applications are required to meet stringent standards and pass tests for stability, reliability, and longevity.
Modern automotive electronics are tested and classified in a variety of ways. A common specification, AEC-Q100, grades components by operating temperature range. The grading of the components depends on the temperature of the environment where they are embedded.
SMARTsemi memory components fall into Grade 2 (-40°C to +105°C) or Grade 3 (-40°C to +85°C) range.
Our wide temperature range FLASH components are found in electronics in the dashboard including information, navigation, environmental and other control systems.
SMARTsemi’s full catalog of eMMC 5.1, DDR3 SDRAM, and DDR4 SDRAM components are rated for industrial range operation -40°C to +85°C, more common in the passenger cabin in controls for windows, locks, and entertainment.
