Synopsis of Presentation

International Automotive Transient Immunity Standards

The basic international standard used by the automotive community to specify transient immunity performance of electronic devices on board a vehicle is ISO 7637. The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) released Edition 1 of ISO 7637 in 1990. Edition 1 was technically revised and published as a draft international standard, ISO DIS 7637, on March 20, 2003 pending member approval. Most of the European and American auto manufacturers have adopted portions of ISO 7637 for their own EMC test specifications. This seminar will review the transient immunity requirements in ISO 7637 and compare the changes in the new draft to the original 1990 edition of the standard. In addition, we will compare the auto manufacturers standards, SAE J1113-11 and the Japanese JASO D001-94 standard to ISO 7637 as related to transient immunity requirements. As a result, the attendees will be able to determine if they are prepared to meet current and future transient immunity requirements from a testing standpoint.
