DB Hitek is expected to manufacture a chip that will go into Tesla cars, TheElec has learned.

The automotive chip is being designed by a US fabless chip company, which will conduct audits of DB Hitek in June and October.

The June audit will be conducted by the fabless alone, while in October Tesla will also take part.

After the audit, the South Korean foundry is expected to use its bipolar-CMOD-DMOS, or BCDMOS, process to make the chips, sources said.

The process combines the analog, logic device, and high-voltage device into one chip, reducing its size, production time, and cost. The process is used mostly to manufacture power management ICs.

Tesla currently uses various fabless and foundry chip companies to manufacture its semiconductors.

It designs its own advanced driver assistance system and SoCs, and give the production workload to Samsung Foundry.

For commodity chips like power management ICs and silicon carbide chips, it gives the design workload to other fabless companies.

Compatriot SK Keyfoundry is also manufacturing power management ICs for Tesla, with production slated to begin in July.

DB Hitek operates 8-inch foundry fabs; its operation rate is currently around 75%, the sources said.

Samsung and SK Keyfoundry’s 8-inch foundry fabs were running below 70%, they also said.
