Innovating safer, cleaner and more engaging automotive experiences
Pioneering a new path forward in Autotech
As a ‘pure-play’ automotive semiconductor company and one of the industry’s fastest Autotech innovators, indie is solely dedicated to developing the advanced silicon-based solutions demanded by new and emerging vehicle designs.
In today’s automobiles, semiconductors perform a variety of functions across multiple electronic components and systems, including sensing, processing data, storing information and converting or controlling signals. Semiconductor architectures vary significantly depending upon the specific function or application of the end product. They also differ based on a number of technical characteristics, including the degree of integration, level of customization, programmability and the underlying process technology utilized in manufacturing and assembly.
While semiconductors have always comprised the core building blocks of automotive electronic systems and equipment, recent technological advances have substantially increased their features, functionality and performance. Today, they support enhanced user interfaces and offer improved power consumption — all with reduced footprints and lower costs. These innovations have resulted in significant growth opportunities spanning diverse end markets and applications.
The three megatrends driving the automotive semiconductor market are catalyzed by:
- the increasing electrification of vehicle drivetrains leading to the rapid proliferation of electric vehicles (“EVs”)
- the adoption of advanced driver assistance system (“ADAS”) and driving automation functionality to improve road safety and strive towards higher levels of vehicle automation
- consumer demands for engaging, connected and convenient in-cabin user experience (UX)

Our origin story
It all started with an idea. An idea that would bring exceptional automotive focus to a growing market and a team of people with the knowledge, drive, and ambition to realize this vision.
The company’s founders; Donald McClymont, Ichiro Aoki, Scott Kee, and David Kang, set out to bring the benefits of custom design to the users of microcontrollers, mixed-signal SoCs and software to create solutions that were uniquely optimized for specific applications.
indie continues to grow exponentially and has become an industry leader in Autotech, pushing the boundaries of design and possibility.
Corporate responsibility and sustainability
We believe responsible and sustainable business practices support our long-term success. As a company, we are committed to protecting and supporting our people, our environment, and our communities. This commitment is reflected through our day-to-day activities, including adoption of socially responsible policies and procedures, our focus on fostering an inclusive workplace, our constant drive toward more efficient use of materials and energy, our careful management of our supply chain, our products which help enhance road safety, and our ethics and compliance program.
- We seek to protect the human rights and civil liberties of our employees through policies, procedures, and programs that avoid risks of compulsory and child labor, both within our company and throughout our supply chain.
