2018.9.4  Successful Testing of Productivity Improvements Provided by Renesas AI Unit Solution at GE Healthcare Japan’s Hino Factory

TOKYO, Japan ― Renesas Electronics Corporation (TSE: 6723), a premier supplier of advanced semiconductor solutions, today announced that Renesas and GE Healthcare Japan’s Hino Factory together performed a proving test using Renesas’ “AI unit solution.” The AI unit solution is one of Renesas’ e-AI (embedded artificial intelligence) solutions for manufacturing equipment that makes it possible to adopt AI in endpoint embedded equipment. As a result of this testing, it was verified that the production yield in the applicable process can be increased up to 99.5% by reducing unsatisfactory items, and that this technology was capable of significantly improving productivity. Although Renesas had previously performed a proving test at their own factories, the proving test performed at GE Healthcare Japan demonstrated that Renesas’ “AI unit solution” is effective at other companies’ factories as well.
