A scramble in the high-stakes, in-car electronics space has reached a fever pitch.
Connected driving and self-driving systems are changing the landscape. For automakers and suppliers, the situation has become far more complex in recent months, both technically and strategically.
With added complexity comes vulnerability - but also opportunity. “Embedded electronics - the evolving future heart of the automobile” breaks down the technology, the strategic issues, the players, the partnerships, and the hidden issues that can make the difference between success and failure in the industry's highest-value sector.
Increasingly, integrated electronics systems are changing the face of the industry. Suppliers are at a tactical crossroads, with companies such as Visteon transforming themselves exclusively into suppliers of electronics.
Applications within the vehicle are growing exponentially, whether for battery monitoring in EVs or for handling the proliferation of sensors required for autonomous driving. Many of these systems are being integrated - sometimes on the same multicore processor.
Tasks that were once the domain of 8 and 16-bit microcontrollers now require 32-bit units, a trend helped by the falling prices of the more powerful chips.
“Companies are spending a lot more time, effort and money developing software, which is more costly than the hardware” - Ross Bannatyne, General Manager, NXP.
The big shift: OEMs want the safety features across not just at the high end, but across the vehicle range.
Connectivity and driver assistance have changed the focus of many companies, creating both opportunities and significant risk if OEM strategies are misread or technology approaches miscalculated.
Software demands are enormous - controlling, for example, cameras inside the vehicle as well as those pointing outside, and monitoring a mass of vehicles travelling at different speeds. All must be processed with different visibilities and weather conditions. A huge amount of data is required.
“Embedded electronics - the evolving future heart of the automobile” offers a clear, detailed analyses of car systems, microcontrollers, architectures, sensors, standards and networks, research projects, the state of current developments, integration, quality processes and several additional topics, including an analysis of the trend toward systems-on-chip and a detailed look at who is doing what among the major players.
The report examines this critical sector, answers technical questions, outlines the strategies for each automaker and suggests.
