Newest Mouser series explains zonal architectures for software-defined vehicles

As the automotive industry shifts towards electric vehicles and advanced driver assistance systems, modern designs require significant hardware and software upgrades. Mouser Electronics, a global distributor of semiconductors, electronic components and industrial automation products, explains that designers are increasingly relying on zonal architecture to maximize efficiency within individual subsystems while allowing for easier management of the hardware and software stacks for the whole car.

Mouser’s Empowering Innovation Together (EIT) podcast explains the benefits of zonal architectures for software-defined vehicles. The latest installment explores design concepts, virtualization and future use cases enabled by zonal architectures.

Director of Technical Content Raymond Yin explains that 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, and can open up new possibilities for automotive design and engineering.

“In our latest spotlight, we explore the transformative possibilities of zonal architecture,” said Raymond 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.”

The EIT series is aimed at automotive engineers, and includes technical articles, infographics and video content that explain how zonal architectures enhance safety, efficiency and personalization.

The EIT series is just one part of Mouser’s extensive library of technical resources, which also includes product data sheets, supplier-specific reference designs, application notes, technical design information and engineering tools.
