Abstract: The need for higher integration density, together with the fact that electronic modules and functions are continuing to be integrated into "smart" devices, leads inevitably to higher ambient operating temperatures in automotive applications. This feeds the demand for high-temperature electronic system solutions.

This paper will discuss the trends envisioned for the automotive industry as mechatronic controllers become more prevalent. Technical challenges and economic issues associated with bringing automobiles with these devices to market will be a focus.
