The impact of electronic components on the reliability of cars

Journal Article


Electronic control units in automotive applications must meet most demanding quality and reliability requirements. Tomorrow's quality and reliability targets for complete electronic system units are at the same level as those for today's complex components in these units.

The analysis of the present situation reveals the essential deficiencies. The required improvements must be based on early partnership of the component supplier and the system manufacturer at the design phase of components and systems, on matured and controlled processes at component and system manufacturing and on correct application of both components and systems.
