Current Trends for Silicon and Embedded Computing Solutions for Automotive Applications 2002-21-0059

Automotive applications have started providing functionalities like dynamic navigation and multimedia computing that are both complex as well as real-time in nature. A single chip implementation of these applications is possible only if the processing power of the chip is high enough. The advances in silicon technology have been significant and the silicon real estate available for processing on a single chip is increasing at a rapid pace. Moore's law predicts that by 2005, a billion transistors will reside on a single chip. This makes it possible for automobile designers to provide the end-user with a complete embedded solution.
