Telematics and Connectivity Control Units, TCU and CCU, are at the heart of the complex telematics system present in the latest vehicles. They need to provide all the intra-system connectivity to a number of modules or sub-systems, such as wideband cellular modems and wireless connectivity modules (including Bluetooth, Wi-Fi...). Interfacing with a variety of in-vehicle data and control busses and ensuring their security are some of the key challenges in designing an automotive telematics unit.
