Along with getting used on the STLA Mind technological platform, the semiconductors from the partnership “will likely be utilized inside the Foxconn EV ecosystem,” the information launch mentioned.
Foxconn, greatest generally known as Apple’s iPhone manufacturing accomplice, is turning into more and more concerned in EV improvement and manufacturing over the previous yr, seeing the rising curiosity within the class as a potent progress driver.
The nonbinding memorandum of understanding on semiconductors is Foxconn’s second partnership with Stellantis. In Might, the businesses introduced the Cell Drive three way partnership to develop “good cockpits,” human-machine intefaces (HMI) and providers.
