Tata Elxsi, Renesas Electronics join hands  to develop EV specific products

Tata Elxsi has joined hands with Renesas Electronics Corporation to develop solutions for electric vehicles (EV). Shaju S, Vice President and Head of Transportation, Tata Elxsi told Autocar Professional that collaboration with Renesas Electronics Corporation which makes advanced semiconductor solutions will initially focus on emerging markets including India and its neighbouring countries.  

To enable this adoption, the duo are looking to offer key building blocks for scalability and re-usability while offering room for customisation.  Shaju said, "The solutions will support creation of quick-to-market solutions and a wide portfolio of products and variants for OEMs and suppliers". 

According to him, both the companies will pool together their deep domain expertise, intellectual property, and assets to create reference designs and solution accelerators for critical EV subsystems like Battery Management Systems (BMS) and Motor Control Units (MCU), among others.

With the electric vehicle market, especially the light EVs gaining some momentum, both companies aim to provide key enablers for the market, starting with India and expanding globally to optimize development time and effort. For price-sensitive markets like India, the duo are looking to bring out solutions, which will help cut down product development risks, costs and greatly improve time-to-market. "In addition, we also bring industry-proven solutions and services for productization, testing, calibration and downstream integration, which will benefit customers in rapid NPI and time-to-market. These include eMobility HILS for validation and AUTOSAR suite 4.2.2 and 4.3 for software integration,” said Shaju. The development will happen at Next Generation EV Innovation Center (NEVIC) which opened up in January this year, he said.
