Samsung Introduces New 5G Automotive Chips

Samsung has presented its new car logic chip solutions, including the Exynos Auto T5123, Exynos Auto V7 and the S2VPS01 Power Management IC (PMIC) for the Auto V series.

The automotive industry continues to be immersed in a great process of technological immersion and need chips galore. As much, as to have to be temporarily stopping some production plants due to the lack of stock that continues to wreak havoc in all sectors. The world’s leading semiconductor manufacturer by revenue, with the permission of Intel, it is one of the most active also for the automotive world, offering chips for infotainment and communications systems.

«Smarter and more connected automotive technologies for enriched in-vehicle experiences, including entertainment, safety and comfort, are becoming critical features on the road. With an advanced 5G modem, AI-enhanced multi-core processor, and market-proven PMIC solution, Samsung is transferring its expertise in mobile solutions to its automotive lineup and is positioned to expand its presence in this field.“Said Jaehong Park, Executive Vice President of System LSI Custom SOC Business at Samsung.

The Exynos Auto T5123 is an SoC with two Cortex-A55 CPU cores and a Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) to minimize the use of external ICs. With 5G support, the chip aims to help automakers develop a new generation of cars compatible with the latest generation of networks, both autonomous and non-autonomous.

The chip supports high-speed PCIe and a high-performance, low-power LPDDR4x mobile DRAM. The development is capable of high-speed downloads of up to 5.1 Gbps, allowing passengers to stream high-definition content or make phone calls over the Internet. Samsung is already mass-producing this chip.

The South Korean firm has also presented the Exynos Auto V7, superior in performance to the previous one and that the company promotes as “ideal for powering information and entertainment systems in cars.” To power these systems, Samsung has packed eight 1.5GHz ARM Cortex-A76 CPU cores and 11 Mali G76 GPU cores.

Three of the GPU cores are dedicated to cluster display and AR-HUD, and there is also an NPU to process facial, voice, or gesture recognition functions. This chip is also in mass production phase and will power the next generations of cars.

While the real revolution will come from software and autonomous driving, Samsung, like its native rival LG Electronics, has seen the expansion of the global market for electric and super-connected vehicles as a great opportunity to sell more high-tech chips as presented today.
