Microcontroller is a small computer integrated chip. It is one of the Technology of the system on chip (SoC). The microcontroller consists of CPU, memory organization and programmable input/output peripherals. The automotive microcontroller is used to control automobile functionality which includes the automotive airbag system, remote control system and operating system. A microcontroller is installed inside a system to control functions of the device. It is possible for it to do so with the help of data from its peripherals utilizing its central processor. The information which the microcontroller receives is stored in its data memory where the processor accesses it and utilizes instructions stored in its program memory to decipher the incoming data.
The key factor of the automotive microcontrollers market is the latest advancements that are done in the transportation systems. Another growth driver is the increase in the demand of touch sensing button sliders and wheels for which these automotive microcontrollers are used for automatic control sensing. Automatic operations included in automobiles such as keeping exhaust system low, fuel consumption low and distribution of power to different technology’s of the vehicle which is carried out through microcontrollers.
