What chips for cars have to do: bit noise, the processor podcast

c’t’s bi-weekly processor podcast is available…

The 70 million cars sold each year contain a total of around 50 billion semiconductor components, i.e. more than 700 chips per vehicle. Many of these “automotive” chips meet special requirements: They can be delivered for a long time, can withstand temperatures ranging from arctic cold to over 100 degrees Celsius and meet the relevant specifications for safety and reliability.

Automotive semiconductors account for almost 13 percent of the entire chip market. In addition to microcontrollers and power semiconductors, cars also contain microprocessors, RAM, flash memory, LEDs, sensors, voltage converter controllers, network and CAN bus transceivers, display controllers and many other chip types. The c’t editors Christian Hirsch and Christof Windeck talk about this in the 2022/15 edition of “Bit noise: c’t’s processor podcast”.

Podcast bit noise, episode 2022/15:

Issue column bit noise from c’t 16/2022: stagnant funding, Saxon quantum chips, optoelectronics and RISC-V

The subsidies for chip manufacturers that have been widely announced in the USA and the EU are flowing hesitantly. Optoelectronic chips entice with superlatives. Quantum computers are being built in Leipzig and RISC-V is lame.

We welcome suggestions, praise and criticism regarding bit noise. Feedback is welcome by e-mail to bit-rauschen@ct.de. If you like, you can also find Bit Noise on Twitter: @Bit_Rauschen

c’t 16/2022 is available at kiosks, in browsers and in the c’t app for iOS and Android
