Body control Module is a generic term for an electronic control unit responsible for monitoring and controlling various electronic accessories in a vehicle’s body. Typically in a car the BCM controls the power windows, power mirrors, air conditioning, central locking, etc. The BCM communicates with other on-board computers via the car’s vehicle bus, and its main application is controlling load drivers. actuating relays that in turn perform actions in the vehicle such as locking the doors, flashing the turn signals, or dimming the interior lighting.
- Effective communication between domains.
- Open-load and short-circuit detection.
- Replacement of relays and fuses to reduce size while improving power efficiency.
- Improved thermal efficiency with optimized PCB layout.
- Optimization for battery transients and prevention of EMI.
