The microcontroller is one of the basic components of any automotive control system. This mini-computer is highly versatile for use in a wide range of automotive electronics applications due to its central processing unit, high semiconductor memory and input-output capability. The early uses of microprocessors and microcontrollers to control emissions and fuel economy have now been supplemented by applications in braking, transmissions, displays, body control, radios, navigation systems, cruise control and more. Automotive Microcontrollers covers the rapid changes in technology that have taken place in this area in the last ten years.

Sections Cover: Microcontroller Design Considerations - covers circuit design, fault tolerant electronics, memory trends, packaging, reliability, and EMI; Microcontroller Communications - discusses realtime processing, the CAN specification, OSEK, time- triggered protocol (TTP), Modeling, and J1850; Microcontroller Applications - contains examples of uses in electronic engine control, ride control, anti-spin control, displays, transmissions, and diagnostics.
