Joint venture between Stellantis and Foxconn, shaping the automotive future in auto-tech integration
The automotive industry is gearing up for a seismic shift, thanks to the launch of SiliconAuto, a joint venture between Stellantis and Foxconn. Combining their formidable expertise, the partners are set to produce a new family of state-of-the-art semiconductors for the automotive industry, with a target roll-out date of 2026.
“Our goal is to build vehicles that seamlessly connect with our customers’ daily lives and deliver class-leading capabilities years after they leave the assembly line.”Stellantis Chief Technology Officer Ned Curic
Merging automotive and tech expertise for innovation
SiliconAuto will bring together Foxconn’s proficiency in ICT with Stellantis’ nuanced understanding of diverse mobility needs worldwide. Their combined resources and expertise promise to offer customers an auto industry-centric source of semiconductors for increasingly computer-controlled features, especially those needed for electric vehicles.
Supporting the rise of intelligent vehicles with SiliconAuto
Products from SiliconAuto will underpin the future semiconductor needs of both Stellantis and Foxconn, with special emphasis on the STLA Brain – Stellantis’ new electrical/electronic and software architecture with over-the-air updating capabilities. This strategic integration is a key step towards developing intelligent vehicles that redefine mobility.
SiliconAuto’s vision for future electric vehicles
With Stellantis providing critical insights, SiliconAuto will shape the future of battery electric vehicles and multi-energy vehicle platforms. This collaborative effort will ensure the delivery of capabilities required by the next generation of automobiles, setting a new standard for the automotive and EV industries.
A partnership born from a shared vision for automotive tech
The joint venture is a natural progression of Stellantis and Foxconn’s December 2021 agreement to design and sell new flexible semiconductors for automotive applications. This partnership has also yielded Mobile Drive, another joint venture focused on developing smart cockpits and human-machine interfaces, as announced in May 2021.
