Goodix completes Dream Chip acquisition to boost integrated solutions for autonomous vehicles

Goodix has closed its acquisition of Dream Chip Technologies GMBH (DCT) with the intention of diversifying its strategy, which currently hinges largely on its lead in supplying fingerprint biometrics to Android device-makers, and accelerating its delivery of smart mobile devices for automotive applications.

DCT has a strong focus on autonomous systems, according to the announcement, and Goodix has scored recent design wins with Hyundai and Lynk & Co. The combined organizations position Goodix to offer differentiated products to auto makers around the world with strengthened technological capabilities. DCT specializes in large SoCs (system-on-chips), FPGAs, embedded software and systems.

“DCT’s track record of success and market validation are perfectly aligned with our strategic development in automotive applications and ISP offerings,” David Zhang, CEO of Goodix, states.  “Coupled with Goodix’s leading position in the marketplace, we are well positioned to deliver compelling solutions to our combined customer base.”

“This is a very important move for DCT. With the fundamental backup of Goodix, DCT will now be able to engage with customers into full ASIC business, supporting them not only with outstanding chip design capabilities but now also with the whole quality proven ASIC supply chain,” says Peter Schaper, CEO of DCT. “This will address all the upcoming demands for computing power hungry SoCs supporting autonomous driving as well as comfort features in the cars.”

While the announcement does not specifically mention biometrics, the identification technology’s use in the automotive industry is expected to grow rapidly over the next several years.
