Powertrain Challenges Impact on Semi-conductor Solutions 2005-26-308
The objective of the paper is to provide to the attendees a status and trends of the silicon technologies to support the challenges of powertrain electronics. Improved fuel efficiency and clean combustion engine combined with high requirements for fun to drive require performance increase of a factor 10 in the next 5 years. The target is to design the right and cost effective semiconductor solution to sense, control and actuate the engine. The challenge is especially high for small cars. Infineon offers sensors, microcontrollers and power semiconductors for Powertrain platforms and therefore owns the right technologies to manufacture those devices.
