This marks the establishment of 3PEAK's product development and management process system that fully complies with the highest level of automotive functional safety, ASIL D, as required by the ISO 26262:2018 standard. It reflects 3PEAK's high standards and pursuit of quality in the development of automotive-grade chips.

ISO 26262 – ASIL

ISO 26262 is an internationally authoritative Standard for Automotive Functional Safety, serving as one of the access thresholds for global electronic component suppliers to enter the automotive industry. The standard covers the planning, design, implementation, integration, verification, confirmation, configuration, and other aspects spanning the entire lifecycle of products in terms of functional safety requirements.ASIL (Automotive Safety Integration Level) is a classification system based on the ISO 26262 standard, consisting of four levels from low to high: A, B, C, and D. The higher the level, the more rigorous the development process. The establishment of a functional safety process system is a fundamental requirement for compliance with functional safety standards.


3PEAK, based on its internally comprehensive automotive quality management system and leading product design verification capabilities, prioritizes quality and functional safety. The company has built a complete automotive functional safety process system.Under the guidance of experts from the SGS Functional Safety Center, 3PEAK strictly adheres to the requirements of the ISO 26262:2018 standard. It integrated the company's existing automotive quality management system and development process system, establishing a functional safety standard development process covering the entire product lifecycle, including functional safety management, system development, hardware development, support processes, safety analysis, and more. Additionally, 3PEAK has developed a complete functional safety culture and training mechanism, forming a functional safety management and development team that meets the highest ASIL D standard requirements.

We sincerely thank the professional guidance and recognition from the SGS team. Through close collaboration, we were directed to receive the ASIL D process certification for functional safety. 3PEAK is committed to positive product development and is dedicated to high standards of product safety and reliability. The certification is a new milestone and a starting point for us. We hope for future close cooperation to implement the requirements of the functional safety process system, safeguard overall vehicle functional safety, and meet the most stringent chip functional safety requirements of automotive customers.

Mr. ZHENG Zheng, Product Line Director of the Functional Safety Center at SGS China, stated:

China's increasing emphasis on functional safety in the chip field is noteworthy. Process certification is the first and most crucial step in functional safety, so 3PEAK has laid its foundation for its development in that field. Throughout the certification process, we witnessed 3PEAK's efficient teamwork, first-rate R&D capabilities, and mature quality management system and development process. We hope that 3PEAK will faithfully execute, continuously improve, and deepen the established functional safety process and methods, ensuring the functional safety of products and enhancing customer satisfaction during product development.


After independent verification by SGS, the functional safety standard development process system established by 3PEAK complies with the requirements of the ISO 26262:2018 standard. This achievement has earned 3PEAK the ASIL D process certification, the highest level of automotive functional safety. This step will lay a solid foundation for 3PEAK's future development of automotive functional safety products.
