Diodes Inc. has announced that its Zetex power management ICs have been qualified to the AEC-Q100 automotive quality specification. Diodes has completed its acquisition of U.K.-based Zetex plc on June 9.

The newly qualified products include monitors, regulators and references, which meet the requirements of AEC-Q100 Grade 1 for operation in automotive environments at temperatures up to 125C.

The ZXCT1008 and ZXCT1080 current and voltage output current monitors, the ZTL431 and TLV431 shunt regulators, and the LM4040 precision micropower voltage reference devices support measurement and protection duties in a wide range of reliability-critical subsystems, including window motor control, air conditioning and courtesy lighting.

"Qualifying these very popular devices at such a stringent automotive quality specification provides automobile manufacturers the benefit of more precise power management coupled with significantly increased reliability," said Mark King, Diodes' senior VP of sales and marketing. "The Zetex range of high efficiency bipolars and MOSFETs has long been qualified to the AEC-Q101 specification for discrete parts. Our AEC-Q100 compliant monitors, regulators and references are a perfect complement, which substantially increases the value proposition we offer to the automotive sector.
