Guidelines for Customer Notifications of Product/Process Changes(PCN) of Semiconductor devices for Automotive

Detailed Information

Scope(The annex is provided as a PDF attachment. After saving the file "tp22001-22_Annex.zi_", convert the extension to zip and decompress it before use.)
This techinical paper provides the guideline for the efficiency/reasonability on PCN operations of Semiconductor devices specifed for automotive applications.
This technical paper assumes three situations causing PCN; 1) Expansion of production capacity due to increased demand for mass-produced products, 2)Production line integration/transfer for aging production site/equipment, 3)Alternative production due to the disaster (ex. Earthquakes, flood and fire). Basically, it requires continuous supply of the “Compatible Products”, and targets PCN cases that are applied to reliable and stable processes, manufacturing methods, and materials with “Sufficient manufacturing result.
"Compatible products" means products semiconductor maker can keep the same part number and specification. (For example, changing bonding-wire material from Au to Cu is scope of this guideline if the semiconductor maker satisfies same parts-number/specification of PCN-product.)
“Sufficient production record” is not only a record for a specific user(ECU makers/Car makers), but also total production record of the semiconductor factories.
This technical paper provides guidelines for the process change notification process, not only between semiconductor makers and their users, but also between semiconductor makers / ECU makers / Car makers. (Including all parties involved in commercial distribution from semiconductor makers to car makers)

About search


How to use the search box

You can enter up to 5 search conditions. The number of search boxes can be increased or decreased with the "+" and "-" buttons on the right.
If you enter multiple words separated by spaces in one search box, the data that "contains all" of the entered words will be searched (AND search).
Example) X (space) Y → "X and Y (including)"

How to use "AND" and "OR" pull-down

If "AND" is specified, the "contains both" data of the phrase entered in the previous and next search boxes will be searched. If you specify "OR", the data that "contains" any of the words entered in the search boxes before and after is searched.
Example) X AND Y → "X and Y (including)"  X OR Z → "X or Z (including)"
If AND and OR searches are mixed, OR search has priority.
Example) X AND Y OR Z → X AND (Y OR Z)
If AND search and multiple OR search are mixed, OR search has priority.
Example) W AND X OR Y OR Z → W AND (X OR Y OR Z)

How to use the search filters

Use the "search filters" when you want to narrow down the search results, such as when there are too many search results. If you check each item, the search results will be narrowed down to only the data that includes that item.
The number in "()" after each item is the number of data that includes that item.

Search tips

When searching by author name, enter the first and last name separated by a space, such as "Taro Jidosha".
