New automotive electronics solutions advance 'green', connected vehicles

The last installment in this two-part series discusses efforts in the components industry to produce ECU modules for car subsystems and other on-board electronics.

The key market trends fueling the future growth in automotive electronics include innovations in areas such as fuel efficiency, reduced emissions, and comfort and safety. Car manufacturers must pursue, for instance, engine capacity downsizing while maintaining or elevating power, cut carbon dioxide emission using intelligent sensing, provide new human-machine interface or HMI and enable alternative energy sources. These system designs require robust, stringent automotive electronics solutions.

There is, for example, a need to create new electronic control unit or ECU modules faster. So leading MCU suppliers, including Microchip, are focusing on the demand for more safety, comfort, security and driver-information applications. The automotive component supplier aims to deliver cost-effective, reliable, value-added systems for powertrain, body and chassis control, infotainment and advanced driver assistance.
