The partnership aims to improve innovation in electronic systems for India and other emerging markets.
What’s in it for Tata Motors
With its expertise in semiconductor technology, Renesas will help Tata Motors accelerate the development of electric and connected vehicles. This collaboration will help Tata Motors develop next-generation automotive electronics.
To meet ever-changing consumer aspirations, the companies will also explore non-exclusive partnership on emerging technologies such as advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).
Speaking to CNBC-TV18 in April, Rajesh Khatri, Vice President of Photovoltaic Operations, Tata Motors, said the automaker was implementing various measures to reinvent global supply chain dynamics to combat the shortage of chips.
“The problem of the global shortage of semiconductors continues to haunt the automotive industry in particular. As we plan for the future, it’s time to reinvent our supply chain strategies to be ready for the future,” he said.
How will Tejas Networks benefit
As part of this partnership, Renesas will also help Tejas Networks implement the design and development of semiconductor solutions for next-generation wireless networks. The initial idea is to deploy products and solutions for Indian markets and then expand globally.
This is not the first time that Tata Group companies have collaborated with Renesas as technology and business partners.
The TCS should also conclude an agreement
Renesas also plans to partner with Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) to establish a joint system solution development center in Bangalore.
The planned Innovation Center would focus on complete system solutions for the Internet of Things, infrastructure, industrial and automotive segments leveraging Renesas’ semiconductor solutions and TCS’ industry experience.
