Foxconn teams up with Nvidia to build chips for cars

Share post:

Foxconn, a Taiwanese electronics manufacturer, and Nvidia, a chipmaker, have joined forces to develop platforms for autonomous vehicles and electric vehicles.

As part of the agreement, Foxconn will use Nvidia Drive Orin hardware and the Drive Hyperion sensor suite in its own future electric vehicle lineup.

While Foxconn will manufacture electronic control units (ECUs) for automobiles based on Nvidia’s DRIVE Orin chip, which is exclusively designed for computing in connected and autonomous vehicles.

Foxconn, who makes iPhones, will serve as a global tier-one supplier of electronic control units based on Nvidia Drive Orin system-on-a-chip processors, bringing large-scale volume manufacturing to meet the demands of various automakers (including Mercedes-Benz and Volvo) with plans to use Drive’s artificial intelligence technology in their next-generation driver aid systems and automated cars.

Nvidia claims that its technology, which includes chips that process data from sensors in real time, will assist Foxconn in overcoming some of these challenges. It sees a $300 billion market opportunity in the automotive sector and reported $251 million in revenue from the segment in the third quarter. The collaboration will allow it to scale its efforts to meet rising demand for chips designed for autonomous and connected vehicles, according to the company.
