NVIDIA is collaborating with Hon Hai Technology Group (Foxconn) to develop a new class of data centers. These centers will power a range of applications including the digitalization of manufacturing and inspection workflows, the development of AI-powered electric vehicles (EVs), robotics platforms, and other AI services.
The collaboration starts with the creation of AI factories, an NVIDIA GPU computing infrastructure built for processing, refining, and transforming vast amounts of data into valuable AI models and tokens.
Foxconn is also developing its smart solution platforms based on NVIDIA technologies:
- Foxconn Smart EV will be built on NVIDIA DRIVE Hyperion 9, a platform for autonomous automotive fleets, powered by NVIDIA DRIVE Thor, its future automotive systems-on-a-chip.
- Foxconn Smart Manufacturing robotic systems will be built on the NVIDIA Isaac autonomous mobile robot platform.
- Foxconn Smart City will incorporate the NVIDIA Metropolis intelligent video analytics platform.
Foxconn will also deliver a range of NVIDIA DRIVE solutions to global automakers, serving as a manufacturer of NVIDIA DRIVE Orin-based electronic control units (ECUs) and scaling to NVIDIA DRIVE Thor-based ECUs in the future.
As a contract manufacturer, Foxconn will offer highly automated and autonomous, AI-rich EVs featuring the upcoming NVIDIA DRIVE Hyperion 9 platform, which includes DRIVE Thor and sensor architecture. This will enable Foxconn and its automotive customers to realize a new era of functionally safe and secure software-defined cars.
“Most importantly, NVIDIA and Foxconn are building these factories together,” said Young Liu, Foxconn Chairman and CEO. “We will be helping the whole industry move much faster into the new AI era.”
“A new type of manufacturing has emerged: the production of intelligence, and the data centers that produce it are AI factories,” said Jensen Huang, NVIDIA founder and CEO. “Foxconn has the expertise and scale to build AI factories globally. We are delighted to expand our decade-long partnership with Foxconn to accelerate the AI industrial revolution.”
