Electrification is Shaping the Future

The electric vehicle market has seen many false dawns, but an electrified future for vehicle transportation is now within reach, according to a report by Strategy Analytics. The report forecasts that 40% of all cars sold across the globe in 2027 will be electrified, rising to over 95% by 2050. This change, coupled with a growing trend for a centralized vehicle architecture, demands a smaller number of more highly powered processors with many incorporating the demands of advanced motion control systems.
