To meet the latest performance requirements for tire-pressure monitoring systems, designers are turning to high-frequency design software. Automobile safety concerns are increasing worldwide, which has led many countries to issue legal mandates that encourage a variety of car safety features. One such system, the tire-pressure monitoring system (TPMS), offers as a very effective way of reducing single-car accidents caused by insufficient tire pressure. TPMS systems not only actively measure actual tire pressure, but many also sense temperature and can wirelessly report sensor data to the automobile’s computer.
