Technology isn't marching forward—it's sprinting. And designers are racing to keep up.

Semiconductor technologies have fundamentally transformed the automotive concept. Today, electric vehicles are connected to the smart grid. Luxury cars park themselves. And even entry-level cars offer smartphone integration.
Over the next decade, these trends will continue to converge to form the clean, conscious, connected car. To achieve this vision, designers will need to navigate new safety standards, shorter product development cycles, and increasing platform-cost pressures.
At Maxim Integrated, we're pushing analog integration to new levels to help our customers speed past these challenges.
