ACU6 Pro Automotive
ACU6-Pro Automotive is aimed at customers requiring the latest in terms of secure connectivity as well as a powerful computation environment. The flexible concept means that the product can be configured for a wide range of light and heavy automotive applications. ACU6-Pro Automotive is available in three variants to support worldwide cellular deployment. Together with its flexible subscription management, ACU6-Pro Automotive forms part of ACTIA’s ‘end to end’ solution.
ACU6-Pro Automotive supports services such as eCall and tracking for anti theft systems as standard.
The product consists of a fixed ‘base’ section and an adaptable ‘customer’ section. The customer section is available with a standard generic content which can be adapted (i.e. interfaces, connector type, …) on customer request. Inclusion of antennas for all radio functions as well as the optional backup supply results in a self-contained function and simplifies product integration.
ACU6-Pro Automotive is designed for 12V systems.
Future evolutions to the ACU6-Pro Automotive include 24V compatibility, further enhanced telematics features and 5G cellular compliance.
Flexible assembly concept
Low - mid volume
- This contains the ‘mandatory’ parts of the electrical and mechanical solution. This contains functions such as NAD, CPU, supply, primary network interface, etc. as well as the main part of the product housing.
- This contains the parts of the product that can be expected to change between customers. For example, inputs and outputs and specific functions such as audio. The main connector is located in this section which allows the customer to select different connector types (e.g. IP5K2 or IP65/IP67). The front of the product housing is adapted to accommodate the selected connector solution/s.
For large OEMs with high volumes, the ACU6 Pro can be produced with a single board design → reduced BOM Cost.
