Automotive Electronics are increasingly utilized in today’s automobiles. Beginning with the requirement of providing enhanced engine control, the current breed of automobiles has become more and more reliant on electronics, enabling them in going faster, even while providing highest levels of safety. Today’s contemporary cars have evolved into electronic machines, with more and more operations being controlled with electronic control units (ECUs). For instance, a premium segment car can comprise up to 150 such ECUs for controlling virtually all vehicle-related aspects. These can include an engine control unit for managing a car’s efficiency, a steering and surround view system for preventing accidents, a telematic system offering information related to local hot spots, an electronic stability/traction control for maintaining appropriate steering control, and sensors for deploying airbags in the event of a collision.

The major trends driving demand for increased penetration of electronics in automobiles include regulatory mandates for improving fuel economy and stringent emission standards as well as requirements for advanced safety systems, consumer demand for safety & security and comfort & convenience features, and growth of hybrid and electric vehicles. Environmental issues and highly stringent government regulations have been forcing auto OEMs to accord greater importance to fuel efficiency.
