Multiple sites pass IATF 16949:2016 audit

TEMPE, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Amkor Technology, Inc. (Nasdaq: AMKR), a leading provider of

semiconductor packaging and test services, today announced that multiple

factories have passed certification audits for IATF 16949:2016, a key

certification required for manufacturers who supply products to the

automotive market. IATF 16949:2016 replaces and supersedes the older

ISO/TS 16949 standard.

Included in the list of factories that achieved certification is Amkor’s

newest, K5 ― a state-of-the-art facility with 2.3 million square feet of

floor space located in Incheon, South Korea. K5 combines automation,

world class particle control and automotive processes to meet stringent

quality and reliability requirements.

“This certification is a testament to Amkor’s significant automotive

experience, as well as our exacting quality standards,” said YongChul

Park, Amkor’s executive vice president, Worldwide Manufacturing.

“Semiconductors are the foundation for automotive electronic systems

that help keep passengers connected and safe. Certifying our factories

for automotive applications offers significant growth opportunities for

Amkor and enables us to deliver the leading-edge solutions our customers

and automotive OEMs require.”

Automotive ICs must perform reliably under harsh conditions for extended

periods of time. To deliver the durability and accuracy expected by

automakers, IC suppliers are required to use specialized packaging

techniques with additional process steps and controls. Amkor has

factories in several countries that have achieved IATF 16949:2016

certification, including ATK, ATP, ATM, ATT, and ATC; IATF 16949:2016

certifications for J-Devices and Amkor Technology Portugal are in

process. For more information, visit
