Jesreel Baybay, Product Specialist for Zonal Architectures, Continental | LinkedIn

The widespread transition towards software-defined vehicles and the need to reduce complexity and wiring harnesses is revolutionizing E/E architectures.

In this free webinar, Continental’s Jesreel Baybay discusses the emergence of zone control units (ZCUs), which reduce the number of ECUs required by connecting the sensors and actuators from different domains, hosting the zonal power distribution, and including the signal-to-service translation.

The expert also outlines the challenges faced by the ZCU, which requires new solutions offered by modern microcontrollers to meet safety, security, and performance requirements.

Key topics and takeaways:

  • Gain insight into the future of zonal architectures e.g., virtualization and smart power distribution concepts
  • Discover how ZCUs host x-Domain functionalities comprised of sensing, actuation, and logic
  • Understand why ZCUs demand real-time requirements and low-power capabilities
  • Learn how and why ZCUs need more processing power and capabilities e.g., Digital Signal Processing
