IP solutions for chip manufacturers
Intellectual Property modules
IP (Intellectual property) modules represent an assembly plan to implement complete function blocks in hardware. Typical applications include, e.g. electric control units for engine, transmission and safety systems. Bosch is one of the pioneers in automotive IP business.
IP modules allow chipmakers to quickly adopt complete ranges of functions in standard products such as microcontrollers, FPGAs and automotive ASSPs, thus significantly reducing development times and costs.
We constantly develop IP modules and transfer functional updates to standards. Numerous suppliers and OEMs appreciate this system expertise and rely on processors with built-in IP modules from Bosch for their electronic control units.
Designed for automotive applications
IP modules for networking applications ensure proper data handling according to the respective bus specification. Bosch offers protocol controller IPs for various bus systems such as CAN, FlexRay or LIN.
The generic timer (GTM) IP module can be the real-time "heart" of any microcontroller in powertrain systems. The Bosch platform provides real-time measurements of multiple input signals like angles or timings, as well as the generation of complex output signals.
