Tata Elxsi and Renesas Electronics Corporation are collaborating on a state-of-the-art design centre in Bangalore to develop targeted solutions for EV. The new Next Generation EV Innovation Center (NEVIC) was opened in January 2022.

The companies bring together their deep domain expertise, intellectual property, and assets to the NEVIC and collaborate to produce reference designs and solution accelerators for critical EV subsystems such as BMS and MCU, among others. With the EV market, particularly the Light EV segment, at an inflection point, the companies aim to deliver key enablers for the market, starting with India and expanding globally to optimise development time and effort.

‘’We are excited to continue our collaboration with Renesas, a market leader in semiconductors for integrated, sophisticated and reliable solutions for the Electrification domain,” said Shaju S, vice president and head of Transportation, Tata Elxsi. “Electric vehicles are revolutioning not only the traditional automotive market but also the mobility and energy ecosystems as a whole. Our customers will undoubtedly benefit from the proven chipsets and support system of Renesas as it will definitely help us in developing cutting edge and futuristic solutions which the industry demands. Markets like India are especially sensitive to cost, and these solutions 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 productisation, 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.”

‘’Renesas is pleased to work with Tata Elxsi, a proven leader of design and technology services for the automotive industry,” said Taizo Hayashi, vice president of Automotive New Business Creation Division, Renesas. ‘’This collaboration demonstrates our commitment to support the ‘Make in India’ government initiative, and we look forward to generating future business growth in India. The NEVIC Solution Center will be a turning point as OEMs and Tier 1s will now have access to secure system solutions and can leverage Tata Elxsi’s Electrification expertise for use case specific customisations.”

Through NEVIC’s product and service offerings, th companies will support the acceleration of eMobility, particularly the two-wheel and light EV segments, aiding clients in overcoming time to market and technology complexity.
