Software-Defined Car, IoT and Virtual Car Keys: The top ten stories in 2014 December 12, 2014Software-Defined Car, IoT and Virtual Car Keys: The top ten stories in 2014 No doubt, 2014 once again was a very exciting year for developers in the widening field of automotive electronics. Widening because software and applications development are increasingly taking place in the automotive value chain, and more and more aspects have to be taken into consideration: Real-time behaviour of multicore systems, for instance. Or security, or sensor fusion etc. And here are the articles that generated the highest interest among our readers. Read more Fast track automotive development with Freescale Kinetis December 3, 2014Fast track automotive development with Freescale Kinetis Mouser Electronics is now stocking the Kinetis EA Series Microcontrollers from Freescale Semiconductor. These microcontrollers are suited to fit low-power and performance needs of the industrial and automotive market. Target automotive applications include seat, mirror, wiper, sunroof and fuel/water pump systems, body control, park assist, TPMS, battery management and CAN/LIN nodes as well as engine controls for two-wheel powertrain systems. Industrial applications include ambient lighting, DC/BLDC industrial motor control, BCM/HVAC, and generic sensor nodes. Read more Freescale to offer OpenCL platform for ADAS and autonomous driving systems development November 11, 2014Freescale to offer OpenCL platform for ADAS and autonomous driving systems development Freescale Semiconductor has announced its intention to offer an OpenCL-based platform, which it says will be key to addressing automated driver assistance systems (ADAS) safety and quality with dedicated products built from ground up for auto-grade requirements. Read more Freescale extends development environment for in-vehicle Ethernet October 23, 2014Freescale extends development environment for in-vehicle Ethernet An automotive hardware/software solution streamlines development of infotainment systems incorporating Ethernet Audio Video Bridging (AVB) for the connected car. Read more Freescale rolls smallest TPMS module October 20, 2014Freescale rolls smallest TPMS module With the model FXTH87, Freescale has introduced the world's smallest Tire Pressure Measurement System (TPMS) sensor. The sensor offers very low weight and power consumption but lacks strong data encryption despite earlier hacking attacks to the RF connection between TPMS and vehicle. Read more
