Automotive chips are used for the monitoring and controlling of various functions in an automobile. Such chips use algorithms to solve various tasks and makes the driving experience much easier for the driver. There are five different type of automotive chips or integrated circuits (ICs) such as general and special purpose logic ICs, microcontrollers, DRAM, analog ICs and flash. General purpose logic ICs support computer fields and information equipment, where there is a need for high performance with various power supply voltage, capabilities and functions. The major applications for such type of ICs include level crossing, application relating to clock and bus switching. Microcontrollers find application in the body, chassis, powertrain and for safety in vehicles. 8bit microcontrollers are used for safety and body applications in automobiles. Capacitive touch sensing microcontroller is used in button sliders and wheels among other applications. In additions, microcontrollers finds use for in-vehicle infotainment, audio processing and Ethernet purpose in automobiles.
Increasing production of vehicles and rising demand for passenger vehicles is a major driving factor for the automotive chip market. In addition, rising need for better safety in vehicles, stringent automobile standards and increasing demand for engine control unit (ECU) in automobiles are some of the vital influential factors motivating the growth of global automotive chip market. Moreover, growth in the automotive sector and rising investments in automotive chip manufacturing companies across the world is set to influence the market significantly during the forecast period. Rising sales of hybrid and electric vehicles is also set to improve the application of automotive chips in such vehicles.
