With the ever-increasing levels of comfort, safety, efficiency and consumer features in vehicles, carmakers and their electronics suppliers must cope with the conflicting demands of electronics complexity versus power and weight. New MCU products with higher levels of integration, performance and connectivity will result in a total reduction of the number of components and wiring which will help reduce vehicle weight and thereby enable more efficient vehicles. Additionally, innovative low-power modes help reduce current consumption of the individual components as well as to facilitate a reduction in network power. This white paper explores the latest challenges for body electronics design and offers up innovative solutions for the applications in this segment.
