The teenagers writing the code for a self-driving future

The teenagers writing the code for a self-driving future
Tomorrow’s engineers are learning to code self-driving vehicles of the future today thanks to the unique Land Rover 4x4 in Schools programme. Self-driving cars will require an estimated one billion lines of computer code1 – almost 1,000 times more than the 145,000 lines required by NASA to land Apollo 11 on the moon2. To meet the growing need for more coders to deliver these future autonomous and connected vehicles, Jaguar Land Rover is looking to inspire the next generation of software engineers.

Improving efficiency in cars for electromobility

Improving efficiency in cars for electromobility
To improve the efficiency in modern cars on the way to electromobility and in challenging industrial power conversion applications the power density has to be increased without limitations on performance and reliability. Based on the AT&S ECP (Embedded Components Packaging) technology active and passive components have been integrated into PCBs for low-power designs and are used in volume production meeting high-quality requirements.
