Emergency call (eCall)

Emergency call (eCall) integrated circuits and reference designs


Emergency call (eCall) systems allow the passengers to alert emergency services of a crash through a manual trigger or via automatic crash instantiation; they are becoming more and more common for automotive manufacturers to both meet legislative measures and to improve customers’ peace-of-mind. Our integrated circuits, reference designs and products enable you to design eCall systems that not only meet the basic legislative requirements, but are cost effective, increasingly integrated and exceedingly reliable.

TI provides innovative reference designs and complementary ICs for eCall systems that allow streamlining the design cycle and reducing time-to-market.

The benefits of eCall include:

  • Meeting regional legislative standards for systems to support emergency calling through a GSM module
  • Backup batteries to provide flexible and reliable power upon disconnection from the main car battery
  • Powerful audio solutions to support clear communication in the event of a crash
