Samsung has its own line of chipsets and prefers to use these where possible. The company is now expanding its business and working on chips for automobiles. The company has just announced three new chips for automobiles – Exynos Auto T5123 for 5G connectivity, the Exynos Auto V7 for comprehensive in-vehicle infotainment systems, and the ASIL-B certified S2VPS01 power management IC (PMIC) for the Auto V series.
These chips will offer more entertainment consumption and increase electrical components in cars and plans to respond to growing demand.
According to reports, the Samsung Exynos Auto T5123 is a 3GPP Release 15 telematics control unit. It brings fast and seamless 5G connectivity in both standalone (SA) and non-standalone (NSA) modes to the next generation of connected cars. This chipset has two Cortex-A55 CPU cores and a built-in Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS). It will deliver information through the high-speed download of up to 5.1Gbps and will support a high-speed PCIe (PCI Express) interface and a low-power, high-performance LPDDR4x mobile DRAM to process the data.
The second one – the Exynos Auto V7 – is primarily for infotainment systems. It has eight Cortex-A76 cores at 1.5GHz and 11 Arm Mali G76 GPU cores. This chipset supports up to four displays and 12 camera inputs. It also sports three HiFi 4 audio processors. This chip is currently available for Volkswagen’s latest In-Car Application-Server (ICAS) 3.1.
The third chipset – the S2VPS01 – is a PMIC (Power management integrated circuit) for the Exynos Auto V9 and V7, and regulates and rectifies the flow of electrical power.
