Design Guide – Testing Automotive MCU

There is a growing share of electronics in a car, ranging from infotainment, body and engine-controls to advanced driver-assistance modules. Today, premier cars have up to 70 MCUs (Microcontroller Control Units), interconnected by several system buses and exchange thousands of signals between themselves. To put that in business perspective, analysts estimate autonomous chips annual revenue to grow from $11 billion (in 2019) to $29 billion in 2030, representing a revenue of $350 per vehicle by 2030. The growing electronics in vehicles enables performance enhancement, better safety, security along with other value-added features. With the increased complexity of electronics components including cameras, radars, sensors etc, it is important to put sufficient emphasis on their reliability. A single malfunction of an electronic component can lead to a life-threatening situation.
