With consumer paranoia about security at an all-time high, does automotive software development need to up its game in the quality stakes? The recent collaboration between automotive manufacturers and internet providers in the creation of the autonomous vehicle has sparked great consumer interest in the development
Maxim’s GMSL SerDes chipsets can be used to connect head-unit video data to rear-seat entertainment consoles.
As the auto industry continues pushing development of autonomous vehicles, cars are increasingly becoming sophisticated electronic systems on wheels. Take the Ford GT—with 10 million lines of code, this car surpasses the code volume of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner by 3 million lines!
In the popular usage of the term, “electric vehicles” are those whose propulsion systems are under at least partial electric power. Long touted as environmentally beneficial, hybrid vehicles such as Toyota’s Prius and Chevrolet’s Volt have been rather successful in capturing market share initially. Relative
Transportation systems can have input voltage ranges up to 14V (single battery automotive), 28V (dual battery trucks, busses, airplanes), or higher, and require one or more low voltage rails for digital systems. As a result, designs of such systems need to know how they can step down from high input voltages
Driverless vehicles require sensors to be able to provide distance readings in relation to a vehicle ahead, behind or to the side to a central controller. Radar, laser, infrared and optical cameras, and ultrasound can all be used to gather data about other vehicles, the surroundings, and the road. Cameras are
Wireless BMS concept car at electronica

The LTM8055 is a buck-boost μModule® regulator with a 5V to 36V input range that can be easily paralleled to extend load current capability. Its 4-switch buck-boost topology features high efficiency while allowing the input voltage to be below, at or above the output—with smooth transitions between
While it is understandable to wail at the predicted demise of “real” cars at the hands (?) of autonomous vehicles (AV), and all the fun and enjoyment that fossil-fuel clutch-driven performance driving provides, the uproar is directed in interesting directions. There are many reasons to own a vehicle, and
