The automotive market is driving growth in RF semiconductors in the areas of telematics, infotainment systems and advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS). Telematics applications include GPS navigation, integrated hands-free calling and wireless safety communications. Infotainment applications integrate audio, visual and media entertainment systems into vehicles. These systems are connected via Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and/or cellular Internet to enable a connected car. ADAS applications include automatic cruise control and anti-collision radar. In the future, self-driving vehicles will use connected sensors together with artificial intelligence to navigate the vehicle’s environment.
