Description / Abstract:


Note: Nothing in this standard supercedes applicable laws and regulations. Note: In the event of conflict between the English and domestic language, the English language shall take precedence.

Purpose. This document is the base of general hardware requirements for Electrical/Electronic (E/E) components. It shall be referenced in each Component Technical Specification (CTS) or Subsystem Technical Specification (SSTS). It is intended to be a guideline when creating a CTS/SSTS, and a guideline for suppliers when implementing the requirements of the CTS/SSTS. It is one of the documents the supplier receives with the Request For Quotation (RFQ) of automotive E/E components.

Applicability. This specification describes hardware requirements which apply to E/E components. This specification also provides descriptions, recommended circuits, and parameters to be specified for most standard inputs and outputs. These definitions are intended to be used for E/E components. This includes, but is not limited to, Powertrain, Chassis, Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC), Interior, Body, Closures, Exterior, and Electrical. This document may be used to cut and paste requirements into a CTS/SSTS, or may be used to eliminate sections of the CTS/SSTS by referencing the appropriate section of this document.

Remarks. Within this document, the following conventions are applied:

The word "shall" is to be used in the following ways:

a. To state a binding requirement on the E/E component or the interfaces which comprise the E/E component, which is verifiable by external manipulation and/or observation of an input or output.

b. To state a binding requirement upon an E/E component’s requirements document that is verifiable through a review of the document.

The word "must" is used to indicate that a binding requirement exists on components or devices which are outside the scope of this specification.

The word "will" is used to state an immutable law of physics.

The word "should" is used to denote a preference or desired conformance.
