It is not entirely clear. FAW Group has both component subsidiaries and is a car maker. SO it would seem likely that automobile components developed by the JV will likely make their way in to FAW vehicles and be offered to third parties.
Infineon and Hyundai started their cooperation and opened the Hyundai Infineon Innovation Center back in 2007.
Mechatronics Engineers at this new lab will have more opportunities and challenging tasks. The new developments taking at this lab will be interesting. These newly to be developed applications will be released in the ST micro's range of components?
Having this kind of JV between a chip designer/manufacturer and Car Manufacturer will be resulting a better car, as today's automotive vehicles indeed require sophisticated electronic control, this JV will utilize the best of ST and FAW with their own expertise and that will give awesome results.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
