Hyundai Autron and ST have jointly developed a semiconductor for Valve Controlled Injection (VCI), used in the Hyundai Kona.
Recently Hyundai Autron and STMicroelectronics have worked together to open a joint development lab in Seoul, Korea. The Autron-ST Development Lab (ASDL) provides an environment for engineers from both companies to collaborate on pioneering solutions for eco-friendly vehicles, with a focus on powertrain controllers.
Bolstering the competitive edge of both ST and Hyundai Autron, the ASDL builds on the cooperation in place for more than 5 years and strengthens and accelerates the efficiency of developing next-generation products for automotive customers to meet challenging quality and performance requirements.
Jerome Roux, Executive Vice President, Sales & Marketing for Asia Pacific, STMicroelectronics has stated that the joint development lab with Hyundai Autron builds on the success of their initial collaboration on automotive electronic control systems and advances their vision for the near future of Smart Driving.They are excited to continue their strong collaboration with Hyundai Autron supporting the achievement of their goals using ST’s extensive semiconductor technology and expertise for automotive applications.
A strong partnership
Hyundai Autron was first launched in 2012, as a controller, software, and semiconductor R&D wing of Hyundai Motor Group. It has developed semiconductors for powertrain controllers and battery management controllers, designed into high-volume Hyundai vehicles such as the Elantra.
In this domain, Hyundai Autron and ST have jointly developed a semiconductor for Valve Controlled Injection (VCI), used in the Hyundai Kona. Hyundai Autron has also been expanding its R&D efforts to support the increased demand for eco-friendly vehicles, self-driving cars and connectivity technology.
