What type of processors are used as ECUs these days?
my 2006 Impala uses Junk for a ecu. They usually don't use any name brand stuff that i know. its a cool development none the less. i want my new car to have 5ghz IBM cell processor!

[citation][nom]archange[/nom]This is actually pretty darn cool; not to mention bold.[/citation]

[citation][nom]youssef 2010[/nom]It could also be in Italic if you like.[/citation]

If you desire you can choose underline as well or a combo

Happy Friday!

Most of modern cars ECU's are powered by one or another form of custome ARM anyway so it is not a big deal. As someone said it before me, by 2013, Tegra 3 will be old technology, so what is good about it?

The Tegra 3 will not be used on the ECU.

The processors used on vehicle electronics have different requirements then those used on everyday PCs/gaming consoles. Some of them are safety critical (e.g. the ecu, airbag ecu, abs ecu, etc..) and have to have a high reliability over a wide range of conditions. The processors are usually picked with enough performance/features for the desired application. The brands are know through the industry but they are usually less known to the final consumer.. because the end-user doesn't use it to build pcs or whatever..
