- The new PoC will drive innovation in vehicle development
- First PoC is expected to be available by Inventec in Q2 of 2024.
Inventec and Renesas Electronics Corporation have agreed to jointly design automotive-grade gateway solutions for the rapidly growing electric vehicle (EV) market.
The agreement is targeting Tier-1 automotive suppliers and OEMs. The companies will develop a Proof of Concept (PoC) for connected gateways based on Renesas’s industry-leading R-Car system-on-chip (SoC).
Through this deal, Renesas will offer its latest R-Car SoCs, analog, power products, and engineering support to assist Inventec in developing a PoC for next-generation in-vehicle connected gateway systems. Both companies aim to share product development roadmaps, market insights and specifications. The first PoC will integrate cybersecurity and over-the-air (OTA) features for connected gateway applications and is expected to be available by Inventec in Q2 of 2024.
The new PoC will drive innovation in vehicle development and create new possibilities for emerging vehicle manufacturers worldwide to participate in the rapidly expanding EV market.
“We are delighted to have Inventec as a partner to build a faster and more secure gateway solution for EVs,” said Takeshi Fuse, Head of Function Unit and Business Development for the High Performance Computing, Analog and Power Solutions Group at Renesas. “As Tier1s and car manufacturers increasingly invest in automotive electrification, we are uniquely positioned to build a working design that addresses the complex demands of today’s automotive industry.”
“We have years of experience serving the PC, server and mobile phone markets and meeting the performance and reliability requirements of our customers,” said Sam Yeh, Chairman of Inventec. “The integration of our technology with Renesas’ field-proven R-Car SoC platform will enable us to reach a new base of EV customers in search of advanced intelligent automotive solutions around the world.”
The Renesas R-Car is a high-performance, scalable compute platform that addresses various automotive applications, such as Automated Driving (AD), ADAS, connected gateways, in-vehicle infotainment systems, cockpits, and dashboards.
