NXP Collaborates With TSMC to Enhance Automotive Platform

NXP Semiconductors N.V. NXPI has been making all efforts to expand its share in the automotive market.

NXP recently collaborated with TSMC TSM with an aim of using the latter’s 5-nanometer (5nm) technology for its next generation automotive platform.

The company’s automotive design solutions will be combined with TSMC’s 5nm technology to develop robust 5nm processors.

Per the deal, the companies will create a System-on-Chip (SoC) platform in 5nm based on 16nm designs to develop the next generation automotive processors.

These new processors based on TSMC’s 5nm process will be used in varied applications like connected cockpits, high-performance domain controllers, autonomous driving, advanced networking, hybrid propulsion control and integrated chassis management.

Notably, TSMC’s 5nm technology is the world’s most advanced process in volume production. NXP’s adoption of N5P will increase the speed of the processors by about 20% and lead to 40% power reduction compared to the preceding 7nm generation.

Incremental adoption of NXP’s 5nm-based auto processors is expected to boost the top line in the days ahead.
