Electronics continue to infiltrate all aspects of automotive design as consumer demand for safety,
performance, fuel efficiency, and reliability continues to grow. Automotive companies face pressure
not only for advanced functions and performance, but also from the rising cost of warranty issues, supply-chain management, intense competition, and compressed market windows.
Electronic vehicle design incorporates semiconductor, FPGA, PCB, mechatronic, and embedded software design to create cost-effective and reliable systems. Integrating all aspects of electronics requires careful attention to component design and system interactions to reduce warranty costs, meet performance specifications, and enhance reliability under constantly changing environmental and operational conditions.
