This solution supports robust next-generation vehicle electrical/electronics (E/E) architecture with improved protection of ECU communication networks for vehicles. The design allows for the use of a few very powerful vehicle computers instead of a great many individual control units.

System Benefits​:

  • Long-distance remote sensing of ECU communication over CAN/LIN​
  • Includes basic software for the microcontroller​
  • Enhanced data security, support for over-the-air (OTA) updates, and full bidirectional communication (sensor re-configuration over lifetime) ​
  • Solve influences of noise and parasitic components over longer distances on new car E/E architecture with centralized ECUs ​
  • Target application: Bridge between the ECU and inductive position sensor (IPS) for throttle, console, and throttle pedal​
  • Reduce wiring by supplying multiple sensors multiplexed on one interface ​
  • Enable robust and secure communication from the sensor to the ECU​
  • Automotive body control modules, vehicle controller units, etc.




  • Automotive body control modules
  • Vehicle controller units
