Intel said it would acquire Silicon Mobility, a fabless silicon and software company that specializes in SoCs for intelligent electric vehicle (EV) energy management.
Silicon Mobility is a portfolio company of Cipio Partners and Capital-E. Its SoCs have industry leading accelerators purpose built for energy delivery and co-designed with highly advanced software algorithms for significant gains in vehicle energy efficiency.
Its range will extend Intel’s reach in the vehicle beyond high performance compute into intelligent and programmable power devices. The acquisition is subject to necessary approvals.
Jack Weast, vice president and general manager of Intel Automotive, said: “The acquisition of Silicon Mobility aligns with our sustainability goals while addressing a critical energy management need for the industry.”
The chip maker also announced new AI enhanced, software defined vehicle system on chips (SoCs), with Zeekr as the first original equipment manufacturer (OEM) to adopt them for “living room experiences” in future vehicles.
Intel also announced a commitment to deliver the industry’s first open UCIe-based chiplet platform for SDVs. Intel will work with Imec to ensure the packaging technology meets the rigorous quality and reliability requirements of the automotive industry. Intel will also chair a new industry defining international standard for EV power management.
