Hon Hai Technology Group (better known to us as “Foxconn”) announced plans to build an advanced computing centre in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, with NVIDIA’s Blackwell platform at its core,

At Computex 2024, Foxconn Chairman and CEO Young Liu said that the computing centre, anchored by the superchip GB200 servers, consisting of a total of 64 racks and 4,608 GPUs, is slated for completion by 2026.

Foxconn will be using NVIDIA’s AI technology like NVIDIA Omniverse and create digital twins to introduce platforms for smart manufacturing, smart electric vehicles, and smart cities – and deepen cooperation in the development of electric vehicles, smart factories, robots, smart cities and more. For example, in the area of smart manufacturing platforms, image recognition technology, combined with the Group’s autonomous mobile robots (AMR), will lead to changes for optimal capacity utilisation. The production line planning will encompass existing manufacturing of AI servers and EV assembly plants.

NVIDIA founder and CEO Jensen Huang said:

A new era of computing has dawned, fuelled by surging global demand for generative AI data centres. Foxconn stands at the forefront as a leading supplier of NVIDIA computing and a trailblazer in the application of generative AI in manufacturing and robotics. Leveraging NVIDIA Omniverse and Isaac robotics platforms, Foxconn is harnessing cutting-edge AI and digital twin technologies to construct their advanced computing centre in Kaohsiung.

A Foxconn subsidiary, Foxtron, will have its new Qiaotou automotive manufacturing facilities become a new benchmark AI factory. Currently under construction, the site will utilise a digital twin connected to cloud technologies and achieve collaboration between virtual and physical production lines. Digital real-time monitoring will ensure the manufacturing excellence of an electric bus, which is currently seeing orders outpacing output capacity.
