Broader reach: Samsung would contract manufacture chips for self-driving features in Tesla vehicles.

Samsung will supply semiconductors to US electric car maker Tesla Motors Inc, South Korea's Electronic Times reported citing unnamed sources.

Samsung would contract manufacture chips for self-driving features in Tesla vehicles, the paper reported, without putting a value on the order. 

The South Korean firm has been trying to build auto-related sales for components such as semiconductors and displays in a push to develop a new growth engine. 

Samsung in November said it would acquire Harman International Industries for US$8bil (RM35.3bil) in a bid to grow quickly in the automotive market.

Samsung did not immediately comment on the report, while Tesla could not be immediately reached for comment. —  Reuters
