Automotive Electronic Systems & Semiconductors Lab.
Automotive Semiconductors Grow Dramatically
- Today, Better Fuel Efficiency, Safety, Convenience & Tighter Emission Control can only be achieved by Electronic Control Systems.
- More Electronics are adopted for luxury car which is followed by low-end car.
- More intelligent and highly integrated ECUs needs more custom ASICs.
Automotive Requires More Stringent Standard
- Reliability is the most important factor in Automotive Semiconductors.
- All requirements such as Temperature, Product Life Span, Humidity, Defect rate, Supply Commitment, and etc are much strict than one of Consumer, or Industrial.
- A in-depth understanding about the circuit and semiconductor devices is a must.
Broad Area of Research On Automotive Semiconductors
- Automotive Electronics : Sensors, ECUs, Actuators
- Sensors -Pedal Detection Sensor, Radar, etc.
- ECUs - MCU, Analog IC, ASIC, etc.
- Actuators - Injector, Brake Booster, HVAC, etc.
- Wide understanding at mechanical, analog, digital, power circuits is very important.
