Flagship automakers of South Korea and Japan are in an intense battle in the development of in-vehicle semiconductor, one of core areas for the next-generation smart car business.

Toyota started the development of such semiconductors in the late-1990s, and is one step ahead of Hyundai Motor in the vehicle semiconductor. But Hyundai Motor, which joined the development in 2012, is rapidly snapping at the Japanese carmaker’s heels by increasing investment in research and development (R&D). The expectation is high that the gap will be narrowed soon, as Korea has many talents in semiconductor.

Hyundai Motor Group said Thursday it would build a R&D center for developing vehicles’ electronic management and in-vehicle semiconductor in Dangjeong, Gunpo city, Gyeonggi province from the second half of this year. The new center will reportedly be based in a location near the headquarters of Hyundai KEFICO, which is in charge of the group’s electronic management. “We aim to fully build the center by the first half of next year with an estimated 100 billion won ($97.9 million) investment in the construction,” said an official at Hyundai Motors.

Meanwhile, Toyota has developed and decided to embed silicon carbide (SiC), a compound of silicon and carbon, in power control components of hybrids.
