Samsung Partners with TÜV SÜD for Automotive LED testing
Agreement marks the first time that an automotive LED component manufacturer has partnered with a testing and certification company
Samsung Electronics and TÜV SÜD, a technical services provider, have developed a new testing program for Samsung's automotive LED components.
The agreement between the two companies marks the first time in the industry that an automotive LED component manufacturer has partnered with a testing and certification company to test the quality, performance and reliability of automotive LED components.
Automotive LED component manufacturers are generally required to submit in-house testing results to supply their products to OEMs. With TÜV SÜD's verification processes, Samsung says it will be able to offer an exceptionally high degree of validation and technical assurance for its automotive LED customers.
Through the program, Samsung's automotive LED components will be tested with TÜV SÜD based on AEC-Q102, the international standard for automotive components, as well as additional relevant safety tests adopted by Samsung and TÜV SÜD. When a component passes a jointly administered test, the final report will include a certificate with TÜV SÜD's double octagon mark*.
"In taking a major step forward to further demonstrate product excellence, we believe that TÜV SÜD's validation of the quality, safety and reliability of our automotive LEDs will provide another very important barometer to the superiority of Samsung LEDs," said Sung-Kwan Lim, vice president of the LED Quality Team at Samsung Electronics.
In July 2017, Samsung Electronics' LED testing laboratory was awarded an Acceptance of Client's Testing certificate by TÜV SÜD in recognition of the quality and reliability of Samsung's automotive LED component testing processes.
