The engine control unit (ECU) is an important component of modern-day automobiles. it's responsible for controlling processes within the vehicle's engine. The following two reports explore the global automotive ECU market and where it's headed.
The average car has more than 30,000 individual parts. Perhaps one of the most important parts, however, is the engine control unit (ECU). This embedded computer system is responsible for regulating a variety of processes within the vehicle's engine, such as the ratio of gas to air that it burns during combustion strokes.
The ECU is also responsible for processing and storing check engine light (CEL) codes.
When an internal problem in the engine occurs, the ECU will track it. Therefore, mechanics often access them to diagnose problems.
Of course, there are different types of ECUs, each of which has a specific purpose. An electronic control unit, for instance, is a different type of ECU that's also used in modern-day automobiles. It's not uncommon for cars to have up to 80 different electronic control units, some of which include the powertrain control module, transmission control module, brake control module, central control module and body control module. The engine control unit is actually a type of electronic control unit. An electronic control unit is simply an embedded system that controls one or more electrical systems in an automobile.
The Global Automotive Engine Control U…ket Research 2018 report by The Market Reports is a comprehensive study of the global automotive ECU market. Featuring 103 pages while covering current and future prospective scenarios, it offers an in-depth look at the market and where it's headed.

The 2017 Global New Energy Vehicle Bat…earch Report 2018 report by The Market Reports is a second professional study of the global automotive ECU market, though it focuses specifically on electric vehicle ECUs. Some people assume that only vehicles with a combustion gas engine have an ECU. However, the truth is that nearly all modern-day vehicles, including gas, electric and hybrid, have an ECU.
This report segments the global electric vehicle battery ECU market by several criteria. On the basis of region, the market is segmented into North America, Europe, China, Japan and others. On the basis of product type, the market is segmented into distributed, centralized and modular. Finally, the report segments the electric vehicle battery ECU market by application, exploring common applications for ECUs like PHEV and EV. Each market segment is thoroughly scrutinized.
