Case Study:  BMW Motorrad Motorsport Super Bike

AEC-Q100 qualified MRAM memory from Everspin Technologies is helping BMW optimize performance of their 1000 RR Motorrad Motorsport Super Bike that made its international competition debut in 2009.

BMW Motorrad RSM5 Engine Control Unit for the Motorsport Super Bike

In trials run prior to each competition, sensor data for fuel injection, ignition, braking and acceleration are measured and recorded in MRAM.  Working from these data, the RSM5 engine control unit (ECU) can fine tune the bike to run at peak performance for the individual rider, specific track and exact race conditions that day.

automotive industry | History, Developments, & Facts

Although steam-powered road vehicles were produced earlier, the origins of the automotive industry are rooted in the development of the gasoline engine in the 1860s and ’70s, principally in France and Germany. By the beginning of the 20th century, German and French manufacturers had been joined by British, Italian, and American makers.

Developments before World War I

The handful that survived into the era of large-scale production had certain characteristics in common. First, they fell into one of three well-defined categories: they were makers of bicycles, such as Opel in Germany and Morris in Great Britain; builders of horse-drawn vehicles, such as Durant and Studebaker in the United States; or, most frequently, machinery manufacturers. The kinds of machinery included stationary gas
