Solutions for the changing world of Electronic Control Units.

  • While not everyone has noticed the scope of the changes, electronics and computing have slowly inched their way into the total driving experience. These advances have resulted in better efficiency, increased safety and improved quality of life.

    It’s been over 50 years since the first rudimentary vehicle computer was introduced. From monitoring steering and brakes to improving general maintenance, ECUs evolved to make everyday travel easier and road trips more enjoyable. Through the decades, ECUs became more comprehensive and served more functions. In higher-end vehicles today, subsystems can number over one- hundred.
