Some of our older datasheets still just say “qualified for automotive applications” – however all of our automotive parts are tested in accordance with AEC-Q100 requirements.
The Automotive Electronics Council (AEC) Component Technical Committee defines the standard (as of this writing, AEC-Q100, Rev H) that semiconductor devices must meet or exceed to be labelled as “AEC-Q100 qualified,” however they do not travel from company to company individually certifying every device that is in production. They are just a standards organization, consisting of members from top automotive manufacturers and semiconductor companies worldwide (see this website for a current list of members: http://www.aecouncil.com/index.html ). It is up to the individual manufacturer to ensure that parts are tested correctly and that they meet the standards put forth by the AEC.
Texas Instruments is a member of the AEC, and thus every part that we label as “automotive qualified” is certified by a company that is on the council.
