Automotive MEMS: Enabling Smarter Connected Vehicles

Current trends in autonomous and connected vehicles are driving new requirements for automotive MEMS sensors. This presentation focuses on two key evolving areas served by NXP MEMS technologies: Inertial Measurement Units (IMU’s) that are required to enable fully autonomous vehicles that meet expanding functional safety requirements, and the impact of vehicle connectivity and increasing vehicle sensing requirements on Tire Pressure Management Sensors (TPMS). Critical technology and safety needs are highlighted in each case, along with NXP solutions to meet these demands. NXP solutions to meet the critical quality demands of these applications are also discussed.
