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.

One in a Billion: AMC Filtration Essential to a Safer, Healthy Environment

Airborne molecular contamination (AMC) is common to every environment. These contaminants are not physical particles such as those found in airborne dust or pathogens. AMC is gas molecules that are part of and move with air. These molecules are the result of outgassing or emissions from virtually anything that can be found in a given setting, from humans and animals to equipment, materials and processes, as well as external AMC sources. Sensitivity to these gases varies widely in each environment.
