Tesla's Ross and Rachel Relationship With Radar
Ross and Rachel's relationship in the TV series Friends was characterized by its on-again, off-again nature, with the inevitability that they end up together in the end. Tesla started its full self-driving hardware with radar in 2016, it began the break-up with radar in 2021, and radar was removed from production entirely in 2021.

Semiconductor Content in Automotive LiDARs
At the heart of LiDARs are laser emitters, laser drivers and photoreactors, all of which are semiconductor devices. This premium article explains why GaN is a typical choice for laser drivers regardless of LiDAR type, however the semiconductor used in the emitter and photodetector depends on the wavelength that the LiDAR is intended to operate at. This premium article explains the semiconductor choices available for laser emitters and photodetectors, covers the fabrication process of each and shows how much semiconductor material it takes to make a single diode.

High Performance Computing for Automotive
Computers on wheels. That's how people currently see cars. Practically everything that happens in a vehicle is being monitored and actuated by a microcontroller, from opening windows to calculating the optimal fuel-air mixture for the current torque demand. But the surface has only just been scratched in terms of how much computing power is making its way into vehicles.
