Aerospace Qualified Electronic Component (AQEC) Requirements, Volume 1 - Integrated Circuits and Semiconductors
This Standard applies to integrated circuits and semiconductors exhibiting the following attributes: a A minimum set of requirements, or information provided by the part manufacturer, which will allow a standard COTS component to be designated AQEC by the manufacturer. b As a minimum, each COTS component (designated AQEC) will have been designed, fabricated, assembled, and tested in accordance with the component manufacturer’s requirements for standard data book components. c Qualification of, and quality systems for, the COTS components to be designated as AQEC shall include the manufacturer’s standards, operating procedures, and technical specifications. d Components manufactured before the manufacturer has addressed AQEC requirements, but utilizing the same processes, are also considered AQEC compliant. e Additional desired attributes of a device designated AQEC (that will support AQEC users) are found in Appendix B of this standard.
