Automotive

DDC has a wide breadth of automotive electronics experience specializing in video and driver assistance applications.  DDC is familiar with and have substantially used the vehicle simulators commonly used for validation, and have significant experience in the rigors of automotive design and practices, and a wide breadth of applications and customer base. The company has extensive experience and has done countless chips in engine controllers, UART/Comm control channels, servo control, gyro control, ADC, DAC, RDC interfacing, transcendental function generation, transmission controllers, CAN bus interfaces, injector control, protected outputs, H-Bridge, sensor access, Power steering Controllers, Position/torque inputs, filtering, end of life replacements, PID controllers, MP3, Voice Activated/controlled system, drive-by-wire vision systems, night vision, etc.
  • The hardware advantage allows for unsurpassed algorithmic performance, particularly with video/multimedia applications where the demands of the requirements drive solutions to higher integration and performance. As well, these cores tightly couple into SOC (System On a Chip) implementations allowing for very small packaging, low cost, and a design that minimizes obsolescence issues.  As well, we have been doing this sort of work for 10+ years, serving the needs of the automotive industry, and have developed a suite of tools, circuits and software, finely tuned for optimal performance efficient implementation. See product examples.
