ROHM has released a new website consolidating 1,000 products under the ComfySILTM brand to support functional safety in automotive systems.
Improving the searchability of products and various documents contributes to greater work efficiency for electronic circuit and system designers in the automotive field.
In recent years, following the acceleration of technical innovation represented by ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance System) in the automotive sector, it has become necessary to consider functional safety to help prevent accidents.
At the same time, in response to the increasing importance to ensure vehicle safety by supporting safety requirements at the device level for onboard electrical systems, the 2nd edition of ISO 26262, the international standard for functional safety, was released in December 2018 that adds a chapter on the semiconductor.
ROHM quickly responded to these needs, and in March 2018 successfully acquired ISO 26262 development process certification from 3rd party certification body TÜV Rheinland.
Since then, ROHM gradually expanded its portfolio to include documents required for functional safety design and currently features a lineup of more than 1,000 compatible part numbers.
This new special site consolidates functional safety-compliant products under the brand name ComfySILTM that will be used on the web and relevant documents to significantly improve product searchability.
The ComfySILTM brand targets not only vehicles, but also functional safety for other markets as well, and going forward we will expand our lineup of products that support functional safety for the industrial equipment field as well.
As the role of semiconductors in the automotive and industrial equipment markets continues to grow, ROHM will strive to manufacture high-quality products and contribute to the creation of a safer, more secure, environmentally friendly automotive society through its products.
Under a corporate objective of ‘Quality First’ established since its founding, ROHM utilizes a vertically integrated production system within the group that infuses superior quality into every process, from development to manufacturing, while also providing reliable traceability and an optimized supply chain.
