Samsung has unveiled several new products designed for automobiles including the Exynos Auto T5123, the Exynos Auto V7, and the S2VPS01 power management IC (PMIC) for the Auto V series. The Exynos Auto T5123 delivers 5G connectivity while the Exynos Auto V7 brings improved performance.
Commenting on the range of new products, Jaehong Park, Executive Vice President of System LSI Custom SOC Business at Samsung Electronics, said:
“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, an AI-enhanced multi-core processor and a market-proven PMIC solution, Samsung is transfusing its expertise in mobile solutions into its automotive lineup and is positioned to expand its presence within the field.”
With the Exynos Auto T5123, Samsung will help car-makers develop a new generation of cars with standalone and non-standalone 5G connectivity. The chip is capable of high-speed downloads of up to 5.1 Gbps that allows passengers to stream high definition content or place internet-based phone calls.
The Exynos T5123 supports high-speed PCIe and a low-power high-performance LPDDR4x mobile DRAM. It also packs two Cortex-A55 CPU cores and Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) to minimise the use of external ICs. Samsung said that it currently has the Exynos Auto T5123 in mass production.
The Korean firm is pitching its new Exynos Auto V7 as ideal for powering in-vehicle infotainment systems. To power these systems, Samsung had to make sure that the chip was performant so included eight 1.5 GHz ARM Cortex-A76 CPU cores and 11 ARM Mali G76 CPU cores. Three of the GPU cores are dedicated to cluster display and AR-HUD and there’s also an NPU to process face, speech, or gesture recognition features. This chip is also in mass production.
Finally, the S2VPS01 PMIC has been developed for use with the Exynos Auto V9 and V7 to regulate the flow of electricity. This ensures that infotainment system performance is reliable. If you want to learn more about any of the products, head over to Samsung's Exynos website.
