Quality & Environment
Socionext SoC’s can be found in many different products across a range of markets and industries, which means that we need to make sure that every product meets the various Quality, Cost and Delivery requirements of our customers. As a fabless company, we need to ensure that we select manufacturing partners who have the same ethos as us and are also right for the type of products to be manufactured. Close co-operation with our suppliers across the entire supply chain enables us to provide optimum quality levels to our customers.
Selecting a foundry is a critical part of ensuring optimum quality. We co-ordinate with foundry partners who have state-of-the-art technologies and an established quality assurance system so that we meet the diverse needs of our customers.
Socionext’s Quality Management System is certified against the latest version of the international ISO9001 standard and our manufacturing partners have ISO/TS16949 certification – a standard in the automotive industry. Some of our SoCs also support ASIL (Automotive Safety Integrity Level) certification.
Socionext is committed to addressing environmental issues through the development and supply of eco-friendly products and solutions. Our products are designed to minimize both power and space requirements and contribute to minimizing the environmental impact of our customer’s products.
Our products packing and packaging materials comply fully with all applicable regulatory standards such as the EU REACH regulations and EU/China RoHS directives, ensuring that restricted chemicals and hazardous substances are not used in the production processes.
As part of our ISO14001 certification, we are continually looking at our processes and activities with the aim of improving their environmental footprint.
