SII exhibits at Automotive World 2014 CAR-ELE JAPAN
- To introduce automotive analog semiconductor solutions featuring low consumption, high accuracy and high-quality -

 Seiko Instruments Inc. will exhibit at CAR-ELE JAPAN -6th Int’l Automotive Electronics Technology held inside AUTOMOTIVE WORLD 2014 from January 15 (Wed) to 17 (Fri) (Venue: Tokyo Big Sight, Japan, Website:

 SII offers a wide range of automotive semiconductor product lineups with high reliability and high quality, such as Power Management ICs, Timer ICs, Hall ICs and EEPROMs, based on the concept of “SII Green Device supporting Automotive.”
 SII also shows demonstrations in which performances of the devices can be experienced, and mainly introduce analog semiconductor solutions to designers who develop automotive equipment.

 With the spread of the environment-conscious automobiles such as hybrid cars and electric vehicles, the rate of semiconductor use is increasing rapidly. Measures should be taken to use cars under severe environment, and high reliability is also required for semiconductor products. Moreover, the effort in reducing dark current and simplifying design is demanded to reduce battery consumption when not using cars. SII shows the semiconductor products corresponding to such various requirements.
