Renowned chipmaker Qualcomm today announced an agreement under which it will supply key chips for digital dashboards for Renault SA’s latest electric vehicles.
California-based Qualcomm, the world’s largest semiconductor manufacturer for smartphones, is expanding its presence in the transportation niche. The company began developing and producing chips that enable the simultaneous operation of both digital dashboards and infotainment systems.
Earlier this year, the company announced a deal to supply chips to automaker General Motors, and has now said its solutions will underpin the Renault Megane E-TECH Electric infotainment systems. Electric vehicles use software from Google, Qualcomm’s longtime partner in the Android smartphone market.
The Megane E-TECH Electric, which is expected to be showcased at IAA Mobility 2021 in Munich from September 7-12, is set to go on sale next year.
