Connecting Automotive and Semiconductor Supply Chains to Drive Functional Safety Excellence

Electronic devices now serve as the backbone of modern vehicles and have become the focus of quality standards that ensure automotive functional safety. As automakers transform their organizations to adapt and become experts in manufacturing digital machines, current gaps in how the automotive and semiconductor supply chains interact have emerged.

In 2018, SEMI created a collaboration platform to facilitate discussions, exchange information, and partner to collectively help the semiconductor and automotive industries evolve with the next generation of automated transportation. The Global Automotive Advisory Council (GAAC) is driven through the SEMI Smart Mobility initiative and brings together more than 80 companies along the value chain.

In a recent panel discussion, CARIAD SE, a Volkswagen Group company, Entegris, and SEMI shared their perspectives on how the automaker and other members of the automotive electronics ecosystem can collaborate to address new challenges facing the automotive industry.

High Purity PFA Tubing Overcomes PVC Pitfalls in Dual Containment Systems

A high purity sub-fab serves as the central nervous system of a semiconductor cleanroom. It houses chemical delivery, purification, recycling, and destruction systems. The sub-fab is where potentially hazardous aqueous chemistries and gases are stored and handled until they are delivered to the cleanroom process equipment located either in the floor above it or the building adjacent to it.
