Cohorts Launch Development Lab For Eco-Friendly Cars

STMicroelectronics and Hyundai Autron have opened the Autron-ST Development Lab (ASDL) in Seoul, Korea. The facility provides an environment for engineers from both companies to collaborate on pioneering solutions for eco-friendly vehicles, with a focus on powertrain controllers.

 

Hyundai Autron was first launched in 2012, as a controller, software, and semiconductor R&D wing of Hyundai Motor Group. It has developed semiconductors for powertrain controllers and battery management controllers, designed into high-volume Hyundai vehicles such as the Elantra. In this domain, Hyundai Autron and ST have jointly developed a semiconductor for Valve Controlled Injection (VCI), used in the Hyundai Kona. Hyundai Autron has also been expanding its R&D efforts to support the increased demand for eco-friendly vehicles, self-driving cars and connectivity technology.
