Nowadays, automobiles have become an indispensable means of transportation in people’s lives, and their safety issues have also received great attention from the society. Among all the components of the car, the importance of taillights to the safety of the car is self-evident, and its existence has greatly reduced the occurrence of traffic accidents. Therefore, how to design various functions of taillights to maximize their value is an urgent problem for major manufacturers to solve. With the development of technology, today’s automobile taillights not only have a changeable appearance, but also have greatly improved functions, and the main credit for this is due to the design of the taillight control circuit. Dalian Dapinjia is based on Infineon’s low-cost automotive lighting general-purpose single-chip solution, which has ultra-high scalability and can realize flexible taillight control design.
