With the increase of electronics in new vehicles, the industry is looking to shift from dedicated electronic control units to domain controllers that must manage more complex and interconnected functions. This requires a shift of power. It also introduces various design challenges: thermal management, electromagnetic interference, and electrical isolation. 3M is uniquely suited to meet these challenges and advance the technologies that will drive the future of ECU design.
We access the breadth and depth of all that 3M offers, applying 3M Science to bring forward solutions that no one else can offer.
Consumer demand has increased the number of electronic systems. 3M solutions block and absorb electromagnetic interference to enable consistent and reliable electronic function and performance.
Containment of the electrical charge prevents electricity from leaping between materials. 3M's advances in Electrical Insulating Tapes and Films help facilitate your ECU design concepts.
Adhesives and tapes have been at our core since 1925. 3M is uniquely qualified to address bonding, sealing and joining needs - for ECU housing and beyond.
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.
