Let’s summarise the Automotive Segment year in one word: impossible! You simply need more than one word to describe everything that has happened. Let’s take a little journey through this year’s milestones and highlights chronologically. The year kicked off early with a big announcement from Altera stating that their SoC field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) have been selected for use in Audi’s advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) targeted for mass production. Audi together with TTTech developed the central driver assistance control unit zFAS using the Altera® Cyclone® V SoC FPGA enablingRead More
Being successful means having created something of value in the past. Staying successful requires to identify the trends of tomorrow and start to develop for them today.
