The AEC-Qxxx standards are widely adopted as standards for automotive electronic components, practically serving as the industry standards.These standards are classified into the following groups, according to the component category.

AEC-Q100: Integrated circuits (ICs)
AEC-Q101: Discrete semiconductor components (transistors, diodes, etc.)
AEC-Q200: Passive components (capacitors, connectors, inductors, etc.)

Features of AEC-Q200

Standards are set to confirm the high reliability of products, including high-temperature/high-humidity resistance, thermal shock resistance, and durability.
