The South Korean giant has presented three new chips for the motor world with which Samsung reinforces, without any doubt, its position as one of the great players in the semiconductor sector, both in terms of design and production, since the company has their own factories.
First of all we have the Samsung Exynos Auto T5123, a chip that works as a 3GPP Reseale 15 telematics control unit, and that is specifically designed to offer fast and seamless 5G connectivity in both autonomous (SA) and non-autonomous (NSA) modes to the next generations of connected cars.
With this chip, it is possible to provide essential information to the vehicle in real time thanks to a download speed of up to 5.1 gigabits per second (Gbps), and opens the doors to new services for passengers, such as streaming HD content and video calls on the go. To process this enormous amount of data, this chip uses a PCIE interface, has LPDDR4X memory and has a Cortex-A55 dual-core processor.
On the other hand we have Samung Exynos Auto V7, a chip that integrates a 1.5 GHz ARM Cortex-A76 octa-core CPU and an ARM Mali-G76 GPU equipped with 11 graphics cores. It offers high enough performance to be seamlessly integrated into major infotainment systems, and features a neural processing unit to help with the workload of hands-on services like virtual assistance, voice and gesture control. Supports up to four displays, and can be accompanied by up to 32GB of LPDDR4X memory.
We finished with the Samsung S2VPS01, an ASIL-B certified power management IC for the Exynos Auto V series which is Samsung’s first automotive solution produced under the ISO 26262 functional safety process certification that was acquired in 2019, and also achieved an ASIL-B certification in 2021. This chip regulates and rectifies the flow of electrical energy, enabling reliable performance of the vehicle’s infotainment system.
