The Automotive Central Body Controller(CBC), or body control module, supervises and Control functions related to the car body such as lights, windows, security, door locks and access control, and various comfort Control. The CBC also operates as a gateway for bus and network interfaces to interact with remote electronic control units (ECU) for other systems. […]


Electric power assisted steering (EPS) offers more assistance than traditional hydraulic power steering via the use of an electric motor that is coupled directly to the steering gear/column. EPS assists in the effort of steering a car that uses mechanical linkage. Sensors detect steering column torque and motion, and a computer module controls the electric […]

A car’s seat control houses the various displays and indicators that enable a driver to operate the vehicle. Among these are several gauges— often a speedometer, odometer, tachometer, oil pressure gauge, fuel gauge, etc. — as well as various indicators for system malfunctions and warnings. Seat Controls provide drivers with a centralized and easily viewable […]

Remote keyless entry systems, now fairly commonplace devices, provide car owners with a degree of convenience, making the task of physically inserting a key unnecessary. A passive keyless entry (PKE) system uses advanced technology to take vehicle accessibility to a higher level. With PKE, car owners have simply to pull the door handle while the […]

Electronic power train control is key to fuel efficiency and lower emissions. The main inverter converts high voltage, high current DC to AC (the electric traction motor is a 3-phase AC load.) The main inverter controls the electric motor. The electronics in a main inverter are ideally designed to minimize switching losses and maximize thermal […]

An Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) is a safety feature in vehicles that helps the driver maintain control during emergency braking situations. It does not necessarily make the car stop more quickly. Without ABS, more driver skill is needed to stop in unexpected situations, freeing the driver to concentrate on steering
