“There’s likely nothing else you are going to buy in your life that will have as much technology as a car,” said Yasmine King, vp of the automotive cabin experience group at Analog Devices.

“We dedicate significant effort to envisioning future R&D innovations, aiming to address some of the most challenging automotive problems including accelerating the autonomous driving experience and the convergence of the energy grid and electrified mobility.”
