Automotive Solutions | Cypress Semiconductor
The automotive industry is rich in innovation as the car morphs into the most advanced consumer electronics device available today. The worldwide light vehicle sales are forecasted to grow from 77Mu in 2011 to 111Mu in 2020 according to LMC Automotive. As many as 80 to 100 microcontrollers drive today's advanced features such as autopilot, advanced diagnostics, predictive and self-intelligence, and advance driver assistance systems.
For more than a decade, Cypress and Spansion have been designed into multiple applications within the vehicle such as automotive engine controls, infotainment, and instrument cluster systems. With the focus on the automobile market, Cypress now offers a broad automotive product portfolio including non-volatile memory, microcontrollers, analog and HMI devices. It provides a complete solution for advanced automotive electronic systems and meets the critical design requirements driven by car OEMs.
Because automotive applications subject components to extreme operating conditions, Cypress' automotive-grade products adhere to the most stringent standards in the industry, including:
- ISO/TS 16949 quality management system (Cypress is currently operating under the requirements of ISO/TS 16949 and is undergoing a re-certification. For the current status of Cypress’s certification, please direct inquiries to email@example.com.)
- Automotive Electronics Council (AEC) guidelines for ICs
- Production Part Approval Process (PPAP)
- Zero-defect quality commitment
