Dutch chipmaker NXP Semiconductors NV said on Jan 8 it will team up with French chip firm Kalray SA to craft computers for self-driving cars, in an effort they hope will ease the path to winning future approval of their computers from safety regulators. 

NXP has long supplied chips to the automotive market and boasts deep ties in that industry, one reason that Qualcomm Inc agreed to pay US$44bil (RM180.90bil) for the firm even though the deal was eventually abandoned.
