Sanan Integrated Circuit Co. Ltd. (Sanan IC) announced it has attained two additional certifications for its manufacturing management systems: automotive quality management and IT security.

The company recently earned IATF 16949:2016 Automotive Quality Management System (QMS) certification. With IATF 16949 compliance, Sanan IC’s customers are able to meet the automotive industry’s stringent quality system requirements.

In June, Sanan completed ISO27001:2013 certification for Information Security Management standards compliance. To mitigate information and intellectual property (IP) protection concerns, ISO27001 compliance facilitates best-practice for an information security management system (ISMS). It sets guidelines for implementing and monitoring security measures, as well as for risk management of both the company’s and customers’ proprietary information and IP. Practicing and maintaining these security management procedures combined with the other quality and environmental systems lead to building and establishing customer confidence and trust.

Sanan's recent certifications add to existing certifications, including

  • ISO9001:2015 Quality Management and Assurance Systems.
  • IECQ QC080000:2012 Hazardous Substance Process Management (HSPM).
  • ISO140001:2015 Environmental Management Systems (EMS).
  • OHSAS 18001:2007 Occupational Health and Safety Management.

Sanan IC offers a broad portfolio of compound semiconductor wafer foundry services for GaAs HBT, pHEMT, BiHEMT, integrated passive device (IPD), filters, GaN power HEMT, SiC and InP, intended for RF, millimeter wave, power electronics and optical communications markets. Among the various applications for these process technologies: automotive vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communications, collision-avoidance sensors, hybrid/electric vehicle (HEV/EV) charging and motor drives.

“We at Sanan IC are proud of having attained these key milestones of international standards compliance for quality, environmental and information technology management systems.
