PHOENIX--On Semiconductor Corp. today claimed to be the first chip company to receive certification for ISO/TS16949 quality standards established by the International Automotive Task Force.
The ISO/TS16949 program was established by the automotive task force as a single quality standard for global suppliers. The new quality standard deals with the growing trend for partnerships and international mergers.
Phoenix-based On Semiconductor also said it renewed its QA9000 certification for domestic U.S. automotive quality standards. Lloyd's Register Quality Assurance Ltd. evaluated the company's manufacturing and quality-control processes under the ISO/TS16949 and QA9000 programs.
On Semiconductor said it is delivering advanced power-management ICs and standard devices to leading automotive manufacturers and contract assemblers, including DaimlerChrysler, Delphi, TRW and Visteon. The company also said it is currently working with these industry companies to develop new power-management devices to address the 42-volt automotive systems planned for the future.
