Download Understanding Automotive Electronics By: William B. Ribbens, Since the introduction of electronics for emission control on engines, the evolution of electronics in vehicles has advanced quickly. The pace of development has inspired four revisions of this book in roughly 10 years to avoid obsolescence. rarely in history have technical developments moved at such a pace. Electronics have recently been incorporated on new automotive subsystems and have become standard implementation on several others. Such features as antilock braking systems and airbags may solely be achieved much through the utilization of electronics. These options are quickly becoming customary options due to strong pressures in the highly competitive North american automotive market.
