Sensing solutions for industrial applications
The world of industrial applications goes beyond the typical manufacturing and production use cases: it encompasses smart home devices, home appliances and white goods as well as factory and building automation, logistics, and robots. These applications traditionally require a high performance and robustness in harsh environments, for example in terms of vibrations and shocks. A flexible and application-specific feature set is also important to serve the large variety of use cases such as asset tracking, predictive maintenance, and antenna, platform and image stabilization. Finally, easy to integrate products with an extended availability are crucial in order to cater to the long lifecycles of industrial devices. Bosch Sensortec is offering sensing solutions for industrial applications with a very high level of quality, performance and robustness, paired with a prolonged product availability. These sensors are part of Bosch Sensortec’s longevity program.
Bosch Sensortec offers solutions to particularly serve industrial applications by providing products for a period of 10 years from start of delivery/product introduction date, including the notification period. Each product with an availability of 10 years is part of Bosch Sensortec’s longevity program1. All products that belong to this program are marked with an “L” at the end of each part number.
The longevity program offers various benefits to customers:
- High degree of reliability and peace of mind due to prolonged availability
- Improved device performance due to high-performance sensors specifically developed for industrial use cases
- Increased flexibility in purchasing due to the availability of smaller reel sizes
1Bosch Sensortec strives to maintain the supply of longevity product variants for a period of 10 years (from SOD/product introduction date), including the notification period. During such period, in case of significant volume decrease or manufacturing changes Bosch Sensortec may decide to
(i) replace the product by another (comparable) product
(ii) change the technology, manufacturing facilities and/or process
Any change will be notified to customers using the standard Bosch Sensortec product/process change policy (PCN).
