What Recent Vehicle Recalls Say about Printed Circuit Boards

printed circuit board auto recals

You hear the story every so often on the news that a major automobile manufacturer is recalling vehicles due to an unforeseen malfunction that can make the car unsafe. From faulty accelerators to headlights that short circuit, there are many different parts of our vehicles that rely on high quality electronics and printed circuit boards in order to work properly. When the PCBs are asked to do too much or are not built to excel in the intended application driver safety can become compromised. To keep this from happening engineers continue to develop new materials for PCBs that are designed to meet the rigorous demand of future vehicles, including:

  • High Temperature
  • Compact Space
  • Sophisticated Entertainment and Driving Assistance Modules
  • Safety Systems

As vehicles become more advanced, the materials that run the electrical side of things must be able to withstand any challenges that stand in the way. PCB designers and manufacturers are working together on new materials built for advanced applications, such as aerospace and defense, which may be seen in consumer vehicles in the future.
