Electronics Bazaar - - Industry News -

Mahin­dra and Re­ne­sas Elec­tron­ics Cor­po­ra­tion, a sup­plier of ad­vanced semi­con­duc­tor so­lu­tions, have an­nounced the for­ma­tion of a strate­gic part­ner­ship. This tie-up will place Re­ne­sas as the of­fi­cial technology part­ner of the Mahin­dra Rac­ing For­mula E team.

Both com­pa­nies will work to­gether across a num­ber of pro­grammes in­clud­ing ‘proofof-con­cept’ sys­tems for both rac­ing and road cars. Through this part­ner­ship, both the or­gan­i­sa­tions will lever­age their mu­tual strengths to ac­cel­er­ate the de­vel­op­ment and man­u­fac­ture of elec­tric ve­hi­cles, pow­er­trains, ad­vanced driver as­sis­tance sys­tems, etc, in In­dia and other emerg­ing mar­kets.

Re­ne­sas Elec­tron­ics con­sid­ers In­dia as one of its fo­cus mar­kets and ex­pects to bring about sig­nif­i­cant busi­ness growth for the com­pany, par­tic­u­larly in the EV seg­ment.

Ryuji Omura, ex­ec­u­tive vi­cepres­i­dent, Re­ne­sas Elec­tron­ics, ex­pressed his in­ter­est in the In­dian gov­ern­ment’s at­tempt to limit cars to EVs by 2030. “Through our new part­ner­ship with Mahin­dra, we look for­ward to bring­ing our de­sign ex­per­tise based on our open and com­pre­hen­sive Re­ne­sas Au­ton­omy Plat­form, to the In­dian mar­ket,” he said.
