CARIAD ontwikkelt chips met STMicroelectronics (STM) om schaarste tegen te gaan én infotainment op hoger plan te brengen. TT en STM zijn ook partners.
We´re pleased to announce our planned cooperation with STMicroelectronics, a leading global semiconductor company serving customers across the spectrum of electronic applications.
CARIAD and ST are planning to begin joint development of a System-on-Chip (SoC) for automotive applications.
This cooperation model of co-development is a first for CARIAD – for the first time in the history of the Volkswagen AG, we aim to enter into direct relationships with semiconductor suppliers at Tier 2 (ST) and Tier 3 (TSMC) level and develop together. We´re aiming on developing perfectly tailored hardware for connectivity, energy management, and over-the-air updates making vehicles fully software-defined, secure, and future-proof. The planned cooperation targets the new generation of Volkswagen Group vehicles that will be based on the unified and scalable software platform.
Furthermore we´re also securing the chip supply for the Group cars in the long term. For this purpose, we have decided on a further cooperation with TSMC, which produce the SoC for ST.
At CARIAD we´re looking forward on expanding our knowledge within this field to be able to take further steps in semiconductor development.
TomTom and STMicroelectronics to Offer Innovative Geolocation-Based Tools and Services
STMicroelectronics (NYSE: STM), a global semiconductor leader serving customers across the spectrum of electronics applications, and TomTom (TOM2), the leading independent location technology specialist, today announced a package of development tools in the STM32* Open Development Environment that connect directly to TomTom Maps APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) for location, tracking, and mapping data services, accelerating product development and reducing time-to-market and development costs for developers.
This first-of-its-kind-development package consists of an STM32 Discovery host board for 2G/3G cellular-to-cloud connectivity, a GNSS expansion board based on ST’s industry-proven Teseo satellite navigation technology, and a software Function Pack that connects your Internet-of-Things (IoT) node via a cellular network to a range of TomTom Maps APIs. With this hardware and software package and a TomTom developer account, developers can quickly add location-based services to their IoT and Smart City applications. Among these services are the translation of GPS coordinates into a street address inside a map (Reverse Geocoding), retrieval of nearby point of interests, and the production of accurate navigation directions. “We have combined TomTom’s industry-leading location-based and mapmaking technologies with ST’s unrivaled combination of silicon and system expertise to create a unique offering that provides easy access to TomTom’s Maps APIs to empower developers to create groundbreaking, location-aware applications faster and more efficiently.”
“Supporting our efforts to facilitate location-based product development, our collaboration with TomTom has built on each company’s strengths to assemble a tailored package of hardware and software tools that is already fully integrated with TomTom cloud services, around the popular STM32 development ecosystem,” said Alessandro Cremonesi, Group Vice President, STMicroelectronics. “These tools enable native STM32-based location services to accelerate application development of Geo-IoT solutions for fleet management, item tracking, and many other services that depend on fast, accurate location detection.”
In addition to the STM32 family of Arm® Cortex®-M core microcontrollers, the development tools leverage ST’s market-proven multi-constellation Teseo positioning-receiver technology to perform all positioning operations including tracking, acquisition, navigation, and data output.
For mapping data and services, technology companies, geographical information systems (GIS) providers, government bodies, and traffic-management institutions across the globe rely on TomTom to deliver industry-leading mapping products that create location-enabled applications.
