AEC Documents


The following documents have been established by the AEC Component Technical Committee to define common electrical component qualification requirements. These documents contain detailed qualification and requalification requirements and include unique test methods and guidelines for the use of generic data. Components meeting these specifications are suitable for use in the harsh automotive environment without additional component level qualification testing. Suppliers may advertise components meeting these specifications without restrictions, but the specifications cannot be changed without the approval of the Sustaining Members (currently Autoliv, Continental, Cummins, Delphi, Denso International America, Gentex, Harman, Hella, John Deere Electronic Solutions (Phoenix International), Johnson Controls, Lear Corporation, TRW Automotive, Valeo, and Visteon).
