Body Electronics leadership with first gateway integration
Lear has been a leader in integrating multiple functions in vehicle body electronics for almost 30 years and has over 150 patents in body electronics to prove it. We use advanced modeling, simulation and autocode generation tools to increase efficiency and design accuracy. In addition, we design packaging to fit multiple electronic functions into one module, which saves cost, reduces weight and provides a customized fit to a vehicle's architecture.
Gateway Modules allow communication between modules operating on different vehicle communication protocols. Lear has expertise in all architectures including LIN, CAN, MOST, FlexRay, and Ethernet, and has a full range of gateway products to meet all OEM specifications.
Lear's seating modules provide comfort and control of all seat positions and preferences, including heating, ventilation and massage. The seating modules can manage functionality movement and memory through a range of 8 to 18 ways. The modules provide motor capabilities such as anti-pinch and self calibration. Switch pack interface can be achieved through LIN or hardwire. CAN Bus low and medium speed versatility.
Body Control Modules
Lear's body control modules control numerous vehicle functions of the vehicle including door locks, chime control, interior and exterior lights, security functions, wipers, turn signals and power management electronics.
