We see from your search that you're looking for information on the term "Automotive telematics", and we have a large number of manufacturers' news releases and technical articles here on Electronicstalk which will be of interest. Let me be your guide.

Start with the news release Embedded processor saves power under water from Analog Devices, which we summarised at the time by saying "A novel undersea pipeline monitoring system features multiple sensor nodes, each driven by a Blackfin processor". A few weeks before, we featured the news release IP blocks put GPS baseband on Renesas SoC from SiRF Technology: "GPS baseband IP blocks location-enable the new Renesas SuperH Family SH7775 SoC for high-performance car informatics".

In May 2007, we covered the news from Ramtron International concerning its FM33x family - take a look at Companion devices offer CPU applications support which says: "FRAM-enhanced processor companions support commonly needed system functions in processor-based systems such as meters and automotive telematics applications".

Take a look also at the news release from Analog Devices, Cardiac monitor takes Blackfin to heart, as well as Blackfin stars in embedded comparisons from Analog Devices, and Buck regulators cope with 50V inputs from Solid State Supplies.
