FPGAs Helping Cars Get Smarter

FPGAs Helping Cars Get Smarter

Posted 08/30/2022 by Bob O’Donnell, President and chief analyst, TECHnalysis Research

One of the many interesting things we all learned during the pandemic is that supply chains can cause problems for lots of people. Automotive industry supply chains in particular are, well, really complicated. Even general consumers started to learn how important semiconductors are to the production of today’s increasingly intelligent cars and how, if chips are in short supply, vehicles can’t get produced. What they probably didn’t quite get to is what a critical role FPGAs pla...
