ROHM receives certification under ISO26262
ROHM has received certification for the development process under the ISO 26262 functional safety standard for automotive products by third-party certification authority TÜV Rheinland in Germany. This certification allows ROHM to develop automotive-grade devices that achieve the highest level of safety (ASIL-D).
ISO 26262 was formulated in 2011 as an international standard for functional safety in response to the rising demand for safety performance along with the increasing automation and functionality required in the worldwide automotive market.
In recent years, technical innovation represented by ADAS has accelerated, and to ensure the highest level of safety in vehicles it is necessary to achieve safety targets at the semiconductor level that make up automotive components.
