MEMS sensors (micro electro-mechanical systems) are a key technology for the mobile and connected world.
Bosch has been at the forefront of MEMS technology for more than 20 years now and is today the world's leading supplier.
Bosch MEMS sensors deliver high performance, are small, sturdy, and extremely cost-effective due to series production.
Modern types of vehicles include a number of electronic control units. The integrated circuits (ICs) are an essential component of such units. The ICs interact with one another in the system and ensure movement, information and safety. As one of the first suppliers, Bosch began with the development and production of such sophisticated integrated circuits as early as the 1960s.
Bosch ICs are customised for specific application in the vehicle system (= application-specific ICs).
IP stands for Intellectual Property. IP modules allow chipmakers to quickly adopt complete ranges of functions in standard products such as microcontrollers, FPGAs and ASSPs, thus significantly reducing development times and costs. That is, they represent an assembly plan to implement these functions in hardware.
Typical applications include, e.g. control units for engine, transmission and safety systems.
