c. ]The automotive industry The automotive industry is the industry involved in the design, development, manufacture, marketing, and sale of motor vehicles. In 2006, more than 69 million motor vehicles, including cars and commercial vehicles were produced worldwide. developed the FlexRay protocol as a next generation automotive network with sufficient bandwidth, reliability and real-time response to enable x-by-wire applications such as throttle, braking, steering and stability. The standard has been embraced by many leading automobile manufacturers and Freescale's implementation delivers 10 times the throughput of current controller area network (CAN) solutions. Designers of chassis control, body electronics and powertrain systems can expect to be able to get FlexRay enabled solutions to market more quickly with Freescale's silicon-proven communication controller core. In April 2005, Freescale and Royal Philips Electronics announced that they would be sharing their FlexRay technologies with Philips using the Freescale FlexRay communications controller A peripheral control unit that connects several communications lines to a computer and performs the actual transmitting and receiving as well as various message coding and decoding activities. core. E[acute accent]"Philips is integrating Freescale FlexRay Protocol Engine IP into our line of ARM based automotive microcontrollers. There is no doubt that adopting the IP was faster and more cost effective than designing it from scratch, especially with the ensured interoperability," said Harry Inia, general manager Automotive Business Line and vice president Philips Semiconductors. "We look forward to IPextreme accelerating the adoption of highly reliable FlexRay networks across the global industry by also promoting and supporting this FlexRay IP." E[acute accent]Juergen Weyer, vice president and general manager of Freescale's Transportation & Standard Products Group in Europe, Middle East and Africa said, "We have chosen to deliver our communication controller core through IPextreme because of their global presence and demonstrated ability to package, market and support complex IP subsystems for a number of leading IP vendors. As a core member of the FlexRay consortia, Freescale wants to see the standard widely adopted. We feel seeding the market with our proven communication controller core is an effective way to achieve this."
