I love the paddles..instant response!
In the ZF 8HP the hydraulic fluid is controlled by solenoids, should be 8, some on/off type and most force variable solenoids.
There is a "mechanical" solenoid to control park hold.
ATRA webminar slides for ZF8HP
and this one for the 948TE
The shifter is only an electric/electronic interface that gives input commands to transmission control module, per se is not part of the transmission.
In theory it could be a voice activated shifter, touchscreen, ...
For the ones that doesn't like "by wire" systems, don't get close to an Alfa Romeo Giulia since You'll find a "brake by wire system" (sourced by Continental).
Very likely will be used in future Dodge and Jeep models too.
That is the main reason I do not like the shift paddles on the steering wheel but they are good. Also the fact that you can deactivate them.
