San Antonio, TX, United States, 2006/03/01 - New analysis from Frost & Sullivan World PLD Market in Passenger Car, reveals that the market earned revenue of $154.1 million in 2004 and estimates to reach $356.7 million in 2009..
Highly programmable and reprogrammable logical devices cater to a variety of applications in the passenger car market. The penetration of programmable logical devices into automotive electronics is a boon for car owners and proves to be a cost effective solution in the years to come.
The reason for the high growth and penetration in the automotive market is due to easy reprogrammability, in the case of programmable logical devices. The flexible nature of programmable logic devices have been adopted increasingly in telematics and car infotainment solutions inside the passenger cars.

The nonexistence of many pure players in the PLD market space going into passenger cars makes the scenario attractive. However, it has been a difficult proposition to enter the ever-attractive PLD market space. The attractiveness is largely due to the presence of few pure players in the PLD market space catering to high demand for the “computer-on-wheels” kind of automobiles.
“There is an absence of NRE costs and minimum order quantities in the case of PLDs,” says Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst C. Vasantha Lakshmi. “In general, PLDs are cost effective and reusable under different hardware platforms. The handful of players in the PLD business has been able to handle the design challenges and software programming of the programmable logic devices thereby utilizing the advantages of the logic devices.”
Consumer equipment lifecycles are not the same. The cost is still a major factor in the automotive environment. The electronics going into the passenger car space is still very costly and the need for the industrial grade temperature range puts pressure on the cost of designing the PLDs, suited to the passenger car environment.
The increasing demands and need for having a comfortable time inside the car leads to increase in the percentage of logic devices. This also increases the complexity of the design hence leading to higher requirements of integration and miniaturization.
“To deal with the challenges like design complexities and to cater to the needs of the industrial grades of temperature in car, the design engineers need to be well educated about the requirements in a passenger car,” says Lakshmi.
