Audi Taps ON Semiconductor in Drive to Next-Generation Vehicles
ON Semiconductor has sealed a strategic partnership after Audi Ag has tapped the IC company to become part of the German car maker's Progressive Semiconductor Program (PSCP). The goal is to foster innovation along with quality and make the latest technologies available for Audi models early on.
Automotive innovations have increasingly been enabled by semiconductor-based solutions and this trend is seen to continue with the continuous sophistication of powertrain electrification, advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS), and the transition to autonomous driving. These trends call for alignment with leading semiconductor suppliers to create a mutual understanding of technology innovation and quality.
The new collaboration between Audi and ON Semiconductor will help advance the mobility revolution by enabling accelerated development and the introduction of exciting new capabilities in automated driving systems and vehicle electrification.
ON Semiconductor is a recognized leader in image sensors, power management and connectivity for automated driving systems. The company boasts an unrivaled portfolio of power solutions including modules and SiC/GaN wide-band gap devices that enable the development of advanced, highly efficient, next generation electric vehicles (EVs) and hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) that are safer, smarter and travel further on a charge.
