Self-driving cars with safety and innovation. Can you have both?

Whenever you innovate you take a risk, calculated risk at that, but a risk none the less.  Regulation serves to protect us, to make us safe, especially in changing times.  However, too much……

Don’t get stressed out when you simulate your PCB with digitalization – part 7 of 8

Automakers will need to take a closer look at the electronic component analysis processes of the next generation of electronic circuit boards to ensure the vehicle will be able to accomplish this.
