2 Why Consider AQEC? The Perry directive of 1994 and industry response to increased usage of COTS from components to complete systems has resulted in issues:

3 Our Response – The Integrated Aerospace Parts Acquisition Strategy Part I (in place): Electronic Component Management Program (ECMP) –Industry documents in place: IEC and EIA 4899 –Avionics suppliers document their processes for managing electronic components, in accordance with industry documents –Plans are approved by a third party, e.g., IECQ –Avionics suppliers use approved plans as baseline RFP processes

4 Our Response – The Integrated Aerospace Parts Acquisition Strategy Part II (in development): Aerospace Qualified Electronic Component (AQEC) –Streamline implementation of ECMP –AQEC parts are automatically approved per IEC62239 and EIA 4899 –Use AQEC parts “as-is”

5 Industry Consensus Definition: Aerospace Qualified Electronic Component The intent of this definition of an Aerospace Qualified Electronic Component (AQEC) is to (a) ensure that electronic components used in aerospace applications are reliable in those applications; (b) provide aerospace access to component manufacturers’ commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) products at acceptable cost; (c) minimize deviations from the component manufacturers’ COTS products; (d) have little or no negative impact on the AQEC suppliers’ operating or business procedures; and (e) promote communication between the component manufacturer and the aerospace users. 1. The AQEC should have the following features: –Designed, fabricated, assembled, and tested in accordance with the component manufacturers’ requirements for (COTS) products; –Qualified in accordance with the component manufacturer’s standards and specifications for the manufacturer’s COTS products; –Subject to the component manufacturer’s design, manufacturing, quality assurance, and quality systems standards, technical specifications, procedures, and other similar requirements for COTS products. 2.In order to be considered an AQEC, the component manufacturer’s COTS component should undergo testing and/or analysis to assess its reliability in the aerospace application. The process to do so should be mutually agreed upon by the AQEC suppliers and users. 3.The configuration of the device should remain stable for a specified period of time. (This may be done in a variety of ways, but one example would be to characterize given lots of devices as AQEC, in sufficient quantities to supply the aerospace market for agreed-upon periods of time.)

9 AQEC Benefits Promotes communication between semiconductor device and aerospace industry Minimizes & reduces need for uprating or upscreening Part performance characterized for avionics Component Roadmap / Transition Plan – DMSMS Minimize / Reduce LTB and ‘tactical’ reaction…. Assures configuration control – “Better Manage DMSMS” Assures part availability – “Better Manage DMSMS” Enables system design tradeoffs (performance, lifetime, supply voltage, speed, temperature, etc.) Enables ‘higher-level’ system options, e.g., system-on-a-chip, throw- away cards We don’t have to re-create the mil-spec system

10 The AQEC Process Flow Semiconductor device mfr Aerospace user Inventory manager Joint activity Assessment body Characterize AQEC parts Define “essential aerospace care-abouts” Forecast part volumes AQEC definition Part/family specifications Approve processes Purchase & inventory AQEC parts Use AQEC parts Document AQEC characterization processes Parsimonious list of parts/families Feedback

11 Why does this have potential for success? O Many such components already exist and are in aerospace applications O Texas Instruments & National Semiconductor introduced specific product families targeted for such applications – “Enhanced Plastic” O IC manufacturers realize it takes all stakeholders to meet the challenge ahead & legalism alone will not spare anyone O Modern ICs have incredible capability yet many risks remain – especially if inappropriately used O It “is” about money and profits and motivation exists…… O Collaboration across the related industries has been excellent! The Question remains-Do we have the will to succeed?

12 Recent progress: O Avionics Process Management Committee (APMC): with semiconductor industry developed an AQEC “Definition” O G-12 and JEDEC committees met with APMC in Phoenix in January and have established a working group to define next steps O Semiconductor companies (2-3) joining APMC O NAVAIR – PAX River has supported AQEC effort for past 1 ½ yrs O “Socialization” of this effort continues….ADUSD (LPP) briefed in December 03 and received support O JACG briefed in January 04 and further support granted O FAA and NASA participating in meetings and seeking ways to utilize AQEC components where appropriate O AIA Product Support and Engineering Management Committee briefed and received support
