P33 - Lightweight Electronic Enclosures

The Project Lightweight Electronic Enclosures has the main objective to replace metallic components by polymeric/composite components in housings to accommodate electronic systems, fulfilling all electrical, thermal, and mechanical requirements that guarantee its good performance during the entire life of an automobile.


As alternative (or even unconventional in several aspects) production processes combined with the state-of-the-art/innovative materials, it is expected that the result of the project will promote weight reduction, cost reduction and production time, and even the reduction of development time, reducing this way the time to market.


Based on specific tools and methodologies (LCA - Life Cycle Assessment and LCCA - Life Cycle Cost Analysis), the vectors of environmental impact and costs will be assessed considering the product's life cycle as a whole.
