A technical paper titled "Methodical Approach for Centralization Evaluation of Modern Automotive E/E Architectures" was published by researchers at University of Stuttgart and Daimler Truck AG. Abstract: "Centralization is considered as a key enabler to master the CPU-intensive features of the modern car. The development and architecture change towards the next generation car is influenced ... » read more

Design & Implementation of CMOS Interface Circuits For high-Voltage Automotive Signals, with Fully Integrated Clamps


Research paper titled "CMOS Interface Circuits for High-Voltage Automotive Signals" from University of Parma and Silis s.r.l. Abstract "The acquisition of high-voltage signals from sensors and actuators in an internal-combustion engine is often required for diagnostic purposes or in the case of conversion to alternative fuels, such as hydrogen, natural gas, or biogas. The integration of ele... » read more

Making Cars Smarter


The fuel injection control unit has come a long way since 1983 when Ford Motor Co. first included a 16-bit Intel microcontroller-based fuel injection system in its 4-cylinder Escort. Today, some high end vehicles contain more than 100 microprocessors, which is mind boggling in comparison to that Escort that contained just one. To be sure, the automotive industry is a unique animal. Compared ... » read more

The Wild West Of Automotive


Automotive is considered one of the great new markets for EDA and IP. Electronic complexity is increasing rapidly, product update cycles are decreasing, and new standards mean that many of the old ways of doing development are no longer possible. Such change creates opportunity, along with a certain degreed of confusion. As the number of discrete systems increases, so do costs. Electronics c... » read more
