As cars increasingly add new electronic capabilities and applications (such as advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), intelligent cockpits, telematics, and infotainment), the in-vehicle systems must keep up.
As today’s cars are putting more and more demands on their electrical power systems, they must achieve high efficiency to reduce heat dissipation and cut electricity consumption. At the same time, they need to be small enough to fit wherever needed, with suitable performance and flexibility.
Today’s vehicles are adding more and more electronic components, increasing the overall vehicle cost and exacerbating the growing challenge of protecting components against electrical damage while maintaining reliability.

The last two decades has seen significant change in automotive lighting, an evolution that is particularly noticeable in the area of forward lighting. Headlights have evolved from simple ‘on/off’, uni-directional lamps to more adaptive lighting solutions and it is an evolution that has accelerated noticeably since the development of LEDs for the automotive market.

IoT is the drive for what is an ‘EoT’ event, the ‘Electronification’ of Things. IoT simply means that an object has a web addressable link; what you can do with that interconnectivity is driving the huge boom in the electronics sector.

From a driver’s point of view the knowledge needed to operate a vehicle has changed little in a long time, yet the overall driving experience has changed considerably. This is a good indication of how we think of our cars; they are not just a form of transport, they have become an integral part of our lives.
