Objectives

The complexity of the electronic system in an automotive is increasingly rapid. Anti-pollution legislation, increasing number of safety equipments, together with the integration of electronically controlled gearboxes, suspension control and advanced braking and steering systems, are placing rapidly growing demands on the micro-controller and interfaces in the automotive electronic system.

The objective of FAST IS to undertake a feasibility study of a highly modular microcontrollers building on existing expertise of CISC and RISC computing, ultimately leading to a concept of highly integrated supercells for use in the specialised automotive market.

The approach is to:

FAST is expected to lead to the definition of a superstructure for typical peripheral tasks, resulting a super-cell library of advanced structures. Proposed supercells will be in the area of: fuzzy logic, multiplexed wiring, and neural networks. Furthermore a study of advanced technologies for automotive applications will be completed.
