Microprocessors for Automotive Applications 830931
Most of the major automotive manufacturers have already introduced second or third generation electronic engine control systems. In part I the paper summarizes the recent technology trends of the microprocessors which are the heart of the sophisticated control systems.
It is pointed out that timer-based control scheme is commonly implemented for fuel injection control and spark timing control. In part II the angle-based control scheme is presented. This might be one of the alternative ways for low cost distributed system in the future.
