Body Electronics

Due to a variety of environmental concerns and the increasing demand for comfort, convenience, safety, and protection, the automotive sector is continually generating innovative solutions. A foundational part of these innovations is in the area of ​​body electronics, which perpetually offers new functions due to its growing communication bandwidth.

Body Electronics are an electronic network of systems integrated into the vehicle that performs certain functions. Modern vehicles now contain a large number of subsystems that perform control functions, instrument diagnosis, and safety functions and, e.g., manage the power supply. Components of the vehicle body electronics include sensors and sensor interfaces, activators, and monitoring circuits as well as communication relays. Our tested designs enable optimized use in the interior or under the hood, while our expertise in vehicle networks deliver optimized communication performance.
