I need to know if the attached list of parts are actually IC's, and if they are IC's, I need to what kind of IC's they are (i.e. monolithic, hybrid, multichip, or multi-component). Maybe these parts are not IC's at all and should be classified as something different.
The problem is that with the tariffs in place, the HTS code is vital for correct classification and tariff payments. I am not an engineer or any kind of part specialist so I cannot provide accurate part descriptions for my Compliance department.
I am reaching out to you, the group that knows more than I do, to make a final decision about what these parts truly are.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Thank you in advance for your support!!
Please send a detailed explanation of the meaning of the kind of IC classifications: monolithic, hybrid, multichip, and multi-component.
I did my own conclusions (check below) based in my investigation of different internet pages, but there are too many different meanings for these classifications and I won’t really know what are your company meanings for these. This is my own conclusion are below, please let me know if these are wrong.
MULTICOMPONENT: single IC that performs multiple functions done by two or more devices (SBC).
MULTI-CHIP: multiple ICs assembled into a single device, all doing the same function. Analog and/or Digital.
HYBRID: multiple ICs assembled into a single device, but all doing the same function. Pure discrete (diodes and transistors).
MONOLITHIC: IC fabricated entirely on a single chip/single function
Based on this meanings, please find the attached document with the requested info.
I hope this helps.
Thanks for the clarification on the definition. Then I think that all the NXP components in the list you sent are catalogued as MULTICOMPONENT.
