Diodes Incorporated's Connected Driving Applications meet issues such as locating a parking space, adaptive navigation on busy streets, or utilising technology to circumvent congestion on major roads between cities, along with improving driver and pedestrian safety. The ultimate aim is the fully autonomous car, which can only be facilitated through high-speed data communications. V2X communications include Vehicle-to-Car, Pedestrian, Device and Grid – fuelled by increased ADAS functionality.
The volume of data being produced, transferred and processed within the car is growing exponentially. Reliable high-speed data communications will be a part of each new vehicle’s infrastructure. The company provides the products to realise the vision of the fully autonomous, connected vehicle.
Some of the features provided by the applications are increased high-speed datacoms; increased number of SoC interface ports; high-speed data interface of different protocols; increased power management; ADAS, telematics and infotainment systems merging into connected driving; and reliable clock signals.
