Quality

Hamamatsu Photonics has served the automotive industry since 1978, when we introduced our first sun load sensors for HVAC systems. Over the years, we have continued to deliver top quality opto-semiconductors for use in safety systems, automatic climate control systems, data communications, and many other advanced car features.

Today, there are tens of millions of Hamamatsu parts operating reliably in the field. We are trusted by car manufacturers because of the high reliability and performance of our products. Each individual part goes through several 100% inspection steps before it ever reaches the customer.

For over 50 years, Hamamatsu has been a reliable supplier to scientific and research institutions, industry and OEMs. We offer high-quality photonics products, excellent technical support, customizable products, reliability, on-time delivery, quantity pricing for OEM customers and long-term availability of parts over many years.

We qualify the products for automotive applications according to AEC-Q100. We have standard products which are already qualified, but often our customers need customized products. In this case we discuss the technical specification first and do the qualification of the customized product after the specification is fixed.

Our customers are usually Tier1 suppliers who build modules with our sensors which are then integrated into the vehicle. As our components are often key components for the car, we are usually also in direct contact with the vehicle manufacturers. Hamamatsu Photonics’ parts are used by nearly every car maker worldwide. We are an A-rated supplier at several automotive customers and deliver with a failure rate of below 0.1ppm for several million pieces per year.

All of our sales people are engineers and can discuss technical solutions with you by email, phone or in direct meetings at your side.
