EnginEEring the Jigsaw is a video series that explains the technologies and concepts that are being built into the electrical/electronic (‘E/E’) systems of modern vehicles, and how Vector helps engineers to simplify their daily work.
In each episode we give a focused overview of a single topic relevant to modern vehicle E/E systems, and then we point you to further, more detailed sources of information.
