QUEBEC CITY, March 20, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — LeddarTech Holdings Inc. (“LeddarTech”) (Nasdaq: LDTC), an automotive software company providing proprietary low-level sensor fusion and perception software technology based in AI, LeddarVision™, for ADAS, AD and parking applications, is pleased to announce that it has signed a long-term licensing agreement with Renesas Electronics America Inc. to commercialize the LCA2 programmable system-on-chip (SoC) product families and LCA3.

LeddarTech collaborated with Renesas (formerly IDT) to develop the LCA2 and LCA3 programmable SoC products. LeddarTech’s distinctive LiDAR software, combined with AI-based low-level perception and fusion, formed the foundation of LeddarTech’s ADAS and AD offerings for automotive OEMs and Tier 1-2. This agreement with Renesas is one of the results of LeddarTech’s strategic transition to a pure-play automotive software company, building on LeddarVision’s AI-based low-level perception and fusion software for advanced driver assistance and AD systems. In connection with this transition, LeddarTech is pursuing a licensing model with strategic partners and customers for its solid-state LiDAR products and technology, and this agreement with Renesas is currently one of the most notable licenses established in this process.

“I am very pleased to have closed this licensing agreement with Renesas,” said Frantz Saintellemy, President and CEO of LeddarTech. “Renesas has been an important strategic partner of LeddarTech for several years, and this agreement will benefit both organizations and the LiDAR market, leveraging our joint investments in the development of these products. Under this licensing agreement, Renesas will leverage its sales force global and its customer base. LeddarTech will strive to maximize the value of our core solid-state LiDAR technology assets for many years to come,” Saintellemy concluded.
