SECOR search

Your search engine for commodity semiconductors and standard components according to specific criteria.

Are you a developer or purchaser who no longer wants to be dependent on a customised ASIC semiconductor? Then use the SECOR SEARCH function on the SECOR PLATFORM. There you will find the latest available commodity semiconductors (“standard semiconductors”) with just a few selection criteria – ASIC single sources are not included.

 

In the semiconductor crisis (2021-23), automotive manufacturers (OEMs) lost thousands of vehicles due to shortages of individual components – ¾ had an ASIC component installed.

Why SECOR SEARCH?

SECOR SEARCH increases competition in tenders, reduces dependence on ASIC single source semiconductors and utilises the know-how of SECOR PLATFORM experts.

LESS DEPENDENCE ON ONE MANUFACTURER

In the past, the OEM assigned a component to one supplier for the entire production time of a vehicle (single sourcing strategy). In order to minimise material purchase prices for the Tier 1, a specific ASIC was defined with the HL manufacturer to save every last cent. This created a double monopoly situation, which was “dearly” paid for in the semiconductor crisis.

INCREASED TRANSPARENCY IN THE OPAQUE SEMICONDUCTOR MARKET

The results of the free SECOR SEARCH are three comparable commodity semiconductors. These can be requested after consultation with the technical development department. The most important specifications of the semiconductors are shown in the list of results. The semiconductor manufacturer’s data sheet is just one click away.

SIMPLIFIED SWAP OPTION BETWEEN COMMODITY SEMICONDUCTORS

The SECOR SEARCH results list only contains commodity semiconductors. These form the basis for utilising the SECOR EXCHANGE swap process, which has been checked under antitrust law, both in the event of a bottleneck and in the event of excess quantities.

This creates a fair win-win situation for both exchange partners, with SECOR acting as a neutral service provider.

SECOR SEARCH USE CASES

The search results from SECOR SEARCH are an efficient starting point when the OEM is creating a specification sheet for a tender for a component in the automotive industry. Especially for new employees without extensive semiconductor knowledge, as this list provides a quick overview of the appropriate commodity semiconductor. In the past, components with components were advertised as a black box. As a result, there was no transparency about the components installed and ASIC semiconductors were often used. This can be avoided with SECOR SEARCH.

A developer develops a new component and searches for an alternative component. In SECOR SEARCH, he/she enters the specification of the required semiconductor or the predecessor product. He/she is then offered the latest available commodity semiconductors from the semiconductor manufacturers listed in the SECOR PLATFORM, including the manufacturer’s original technical data sheet.

Find alternatives for critical semiconductors (e.g. ASIC) by entering them in SECOR SEARCH with one click

We recommend a step-by-step approach in order to be able to answer all questions regarding segment-specific processing in the non-transparent semiconductor market in your company in the long term.

Step 1: Search and cluster with SECOR SEARCH

Step 2: If you need more information, use SECOR DATABASE

Step 3: If further data per segment/category is still required, contact SECOR.

Simply enter the specifications of the ASIC in SECOR SEARCH.

Alternatives in the form of commodity semiconductors are found with just one click, including a technical data sheet.

This is particularly helpful for new employees who have switched to the procurement of components with semiconductors.

THE MAIN FEATURES OF SECOR SEARCH

SECOR SEARCH provides you with a free selection of three suitable commodity semiconductors from the SECOR PLATFORM. As a registered SECOR DATABASE customer, the search results are unlimited. Use the selection fields to concretise your specifications. You will then receive your list of results from the current industry-wide range of semiconductor manufacturers, which is available to you as a CSV or Excel table.

You can see which cross-industry semiconductors can currently be found on the SECOR PLATFORM here in the SECOR semiconductor matrix. 

STEP 1: SELECT SEARCH CRITERIA (DROP-DOWN SELECTION FIELDS)

Mouse over the individual technical terms to help you quickly find the right selection.

STEP 2: CLICK "START SEARCH" AND THE RESULTS LIST APPEARS

STEP 3: ONE CLICK AND THE RESULTS LIST CAN BE EXPORTED AS A CSV OR EXCEL FILE FOR FURTHER PROCESSING

An overview of the available cross-industry semiconductors can be found in the SECOR semiconductor-matrix.
