Body Control Modules

A Body Control Module (BCM) is responsible for monitoring and controlling various electronic functions in a vehicle’s body such as a wiper control and headlight control. The BCM communicates with other on-board computers via the car’s vehicle bus, such as a power window module with CAN/LIN communication. Due to the module’s numerous interface signal lines, the equipment may require various types of EMI suppression components, MCUs and I/F signal lines. Panasonic provides custom solutions to assist in the reduction of components and board space, as well as power solutions such as the Multi-Pin Microcontroller.
