Safety and security in automotive

Besides autonomous driving, connected car and eMobility, security is now one of the most important topics in the automotive industry. The tremendous speed of IT integration into cars requires a rethinking of conventional solutions. Security plays a significant role for protect elements for interfaces to V2V, V2x or Telematics, secure gateways and transceivers which are operating the network plus protection of processors and car assess solutions. To ensure the data during networking and digitization, the entry point to the vehicle requires hardware protection, firewall, crypto-engine and car2cloud Security, all secured by authentication and encryption. 

As a global automotive player for security solutions, Avnet Silica provides high-quality products, services and solutions to meet your automotive needs.
