Car body and convenience applications are ever-evolving to increase the comfort of both drivers and passengers. As a result, automotive manufacturers need scalable solutions to have the flexibility to cover a wide range of car models and a broad range of options. The updated E/E architecture of today’s cars require semiconductor devices to cover many automotive body needs including those for enhanced functional safety, improved cybersecurity, increasing amounts of data, energy efficient operation modes, and over-the-air (OTA) software updates. Renesas provides cost effective and scalable solutions to meet these challenges.
Electronic control units (ECUs) can now be found everywhere in automobiles, from power windows and airbags to lamps, mirrors, doors, and seats. Due to this trend, the burden on software development for ECUs has also increased. Renesas offers a wide variety of products for automotive body, including MCUs, SoCs, sensors and power management devices.
