Newest Mouser Series Navigates Zonal Architectures for Software-Defined Vehicles

May 22, 2024 – As automotive technology ratches up in electronics, designers have turned to zonal architecture — to maximize efficiency within individual subsystems while allowing for easier management of the hardware and software stacks for the whole car. Mouser Electronics, Inc., the authorized global distributor with the newest electronic components and industrial automation products, today announced the newest installment of its Empowering Innovation Together (EIT) technology series, which examines the benefits of zonal architectures and the enhanced connectivity features it provides software-defined vehicles (SDV). This installment of the EIT technical content series explores design concepts, virtualization, and future use cases enabled by zonal architectures, driving future automotive innovations.

As the automotive industry shifts towards electric vehicles and advanced driver assistance systems, these modern designs require significant hardware and software upgrades. Vehicle performance is optimized by creating distinct zones within the vehicle that cater to specific functionalities and implementing vehicle compute platforms. This approach offers improved reliability, increased performance, and longer lifespans for cars, ultimately transforming them into immersive experiences. Mouser explores how these new features can open up a plethora of possibilities for automotive design and engineering.

Join The Tech Between Us podcast, where Mouser Director of Technical Content Raymond Yin and Christian Uebber, Chief Technology Officer from ETAS, discuss the complex nature of advanced architectures. Together, they explore the necessary software and hardware changes to transition to new compute platforms, with emphasis on the importance of co-design considerations.

“In our latest spotlight, we explore the transformative possibilities of zonal architecture,” said Yin. “This forward-looking approach is revolutionizing spatial design, and we delve into its variety of applications through insightful discussions with leading experts in the field.”

This series includes technical articles, an infographic, a video and more, introducing the SDV movement and how zonal architectures enhance safety, efficiency, and personalization. These resources offer guidance to automotive engineers who are considering the benefits of this new network architecture.
