Joint efforts will advance hybrid/electric vehicle-related semiconductor technology and emphasize transition from research to production.
Geneva, Switzerland. STMicroelectronics and Hyundai Autron will open the Autron-ST Development Lab (ASDL) in Seoul, Korea, providing a space for both companies’ engineers to collaborate on innovative solutions for eco-friendly vehicles, focusing on powertrain controllers.
The collaboration will strengthen ST and Hyundai Autron’s competitive edge, as the ASDL will fast-track the efficiency of next-generation products’ expansion for automotive customers to meet challenging quality and performance requirements.
Hyundai Autron and ST have joined forces on a semiconductor for a Valve Controlled Injection that regulates fuel injection, helping to reduce emissions and fine-dust. Hyundai Autron’s R&D endeavor has supported the demand for eco-friendly vehicles, self-driving cars and connectivity technology.
"The joint development lab with Hyundai Autron builds on the success of our initial collaboration on automotive electronic control systems and advances our vision for the near future of Smart Driving,” said Jerome Roux, STMicroelectronics’ Executive Vice President, Sales & Marketing for Asia Pacific. “We are excited to continue our strong collaboration with Hyundai Autron supporting the achievement of their goals using ST’s extensive semiconductor technology and expertise for automotive applications.”
