ICsense has more than 10 years experience in developing and supplying highly reliable automotive ASICs, often for safety critical (ASIL B) applications. Quality and reliability are the key parameters. ICsense aims for zero defects from project kick-off to volume production by systematic development, test and qualification, in combination with tightened process quality monitoring and outlier screening in production. Throughout the whole process, the ASIC cost is kept under strict control.

 

Our approach in automotive ASIC developments

  • APQP, PPAP according to IATF 16949 (previously ISO/TS16949)
  • Functional safety ISO26262 (ASIL B/C) compliance
  • FMEA, FMEDA
  • Testability definition early in development
  • Systematic design (6σ) and verification flow with SOA checks, embedded in design environment
  • EMC, ISO and ESD/LU compliance
  • High test coverage (incl. bridging patterns, transitional patterns, …) levels
  • Production test outlier detection (PAT, SBIN, …) and defect screening (Vstress, Iddq, …)
  • AEC-Q100 qualification
  • Robustness validation and safe launch
  • Strong OSAT and foundry partners with automotive qualified processes with long longevity
  • Failure analysis and 8D reporting
