Automotive electronics- Advanced ECU systems (control and Microelectronics), Architecture microelectronics of Telematics control units (TECU) in vehicles

The aim of this electronics laboratory-based course is to extend the delegate’s knowledge of electronic principles and develop an understanding on the workings of ECU and ADAS (Advanced Driving Assistance System) / Telematics in vehicles.

The diagnosis of complex vehicle systems requires a technician with a high level of understanding. Emphasis on this course is given to the construction of specialised electronic circuits, TECU system and practical testing using high precission laboratory tools and meters.

The training course consists of two parts, the theoretical and practical.

  • The first part (theoretical) describes the architecture design and logical flow of Advance Driving Assistance system in vehicles, (microelectronics components technical characteristics and  logical sequence for operation telematics), and
  • The practical part provides the trainees with all the practical skills required to find out, faults using  TECU .
