Thank you for your observation that this story does not report innovations not already available in the market. Of course, casting automotive radar in silicon germanium instead of GaAs will reduce its cost and low-g sensors will get Freescale into the exploding electronic stability market, but these important innovations are not unique to Freescale, as you observe. Thanks again.
I think the message in this article highlights that the new smart accelerometers are designed for increased safety and growing government regulations for better electronic stability. Is there any automotive standard these products from Freescale follow?
