Re: general question re number of computer chips in cars

(The article had to do with ASML, a Dutch company making the machines that make the computer chips.)

I had seen that number thrown about before, but in my limited knowledge, I would guess the number would be closer to several dozen.

Does anyone here have more definitive information regarding the actual number of computer chips in a typical car? Just ballpark numbers would be fine.

Thanks, Dave Horne
