Sanan Integrated Circuit Co Ltd (Sanan IC) of Xiamen City, Fujian province (China’s first 6-inch pure-play compound semiconductor wafer foundry) has attained additional certifications for its manufacturing management systems. The firm recently earned IATF 16949:2016 Automotive Quality Management System (QMS) certification, and this June also completed ISO27001:2013 certification for Information Security Management standards compliance.

These are in addition to existing certifications that include ISO9001:2015 Quality Management and Assurance Systems, IECQ QC080000:2012 Hazardous Substance Process Management (HSPM), ISO140001:2015 Environmental Management Systems (EMS), and OHSAS 18001:2007 Occupational Health and Safety Management.

“Having these procedures and disciplines in place not only gives us a solid foundation to be a world-class, large-scale wafer manufacturer, but it also shows our company’s commitment to quality, security and safety, which our customers demand and which our employees expect,” says CEO Raymond Cai. “These management systems definitely help us strive for constant improvements in efficiency, productivity, communications and environmental awareness.”

Founded in 2014 as a subsidiary of Sanan Optoelectronics Co Ltd (China’s largest LED epiwafer and chip maker, based on GaN and GaAs technologies), Sanan IC focuses on large-scale III-V semiconductor wafer foundry manufacturing, namely for gallium arsenide (GaAs) HBTs, pHEMTs, BiHEMTs, integrated passive devices (IPDs), filters, gallium nitride (GaN) power HEMTs, silicon carbide (SiC) and indium phosphide (InP) for RF, millimeter-wave, power electronics and optical communications markets.

Among the applications for these process technologies is automotive, such as for vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communications, collision-avoidance sensors, hybrid/electric vehicle (HEV/EV) charging and motor drives. With IATF 1694 compliance, Sanan IC’s customers can meet the automotive industry’s stringent quality system requirements.

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. Sanan reckons that practicing and maintaining these security management procedures, combined with the other quality and environmental systems, leads to building and establishing customer confidence and trust.
