Foxconn Electronics and Yulon Motor a newly joint venture has unveiled MIH, a software/hardware open platform for developing electric vehicles (EVs), according to Foxconn. This Open Platform and Key EV Components create a more comprehensive EV ecosystem
Foxconn demonstrates its commitment in the transformation of the traditional automotive industry by implementing the company’s vision of “3+3=∞” which symbolizes the infinite possibilities created by the group’s industrial advancement and emerging technologies, in the launch of its EV hardware and software open platforms and the development of key EV components
MIH, Foxconn’s “EV software and hardware open platform” tackles the current development pain points of EVs through being “software-defined” – creating software and hardware separation and enabling an open ecosystem. By allowing developers access to key technologies and tools for developing EVs on MIH, Foxconn reduces the entry barriers to the industry, encouraging more companies to be involved in the development of EVs which will result in exponential growth for the industry.
By virtue of software definition, EVs can be upgraded; the structure of layers for software/hardware can reduce time for vertical development of EVs; technology tools available on the open platform can lower entry barriers to the EV industry and encourage more companies to be engaged in EV development, Wei explained. MIH will focus on flexible and customized modules of key components, light weight and integrated molding parts, EEA (electronic, electrical and automation engineering) architecture and autonomous driving.
Foxconn chairman Liu Young-way indicated that MIH is aimed at a global market share of 10% for development and production of EVs in 2025-2027.
In line with EV technology development, Foxconn has unveiled its in-house-developed solid-state EV batteries as well as battery technologies including fast charging and low-temperature, AI-based battery management, new manufacturing process without using precious metals. Foxconn will launch such solid-state batteries in 2024.
