Samsung Electronics to supply automotive semiconductors to Volkswagen

Samsung Electronics is supplying automotive semiconductors to German automobile Volkswagen.

Samsung Electronics revealed three types of vehicle system semiconductors on the 30th.

The products Samsung Electronics introduced this time are ▲Exynos Auto T5123, a communication chip that provides 5G (5G) mobile communication-based vehicle communication service ▲Exynos Auto V7, an infotainment processor that provides artificial intelligence calculation functions ▲In-vehicle infotainment It is a power management chip (PMIC) ‘S2VPS01’ that precisely and stably controls the power supplied to the processor.

Exynos Auto T5123 supports ultra-fast downloads up to 5.1Gb per second. You can download high-capacity and high-definition content while driving. This product contains a multi-mode communication chip based on 5G technology. It supports both SA mode (Stand Alone), which uses 5G network alone, and NSA mode (Non-Stand Alone), which uses 4G communication long-term evolution (LTE) network together. It supports ‘PCI Express (PCIe)’, a high-speed interface, and ‘LPDDR4X’, a low-power, high-performance mobile DRAM, to efficiently process data sent and received by the vehicle through the 5G modem.

Exynos Auto V7 was installed in Volkswagen’s ‘ICAS 3.1′ infotainment system made by LG Electronics’ Automotive Parts Solution (VS) business headquarters. This product provides a virtual assistant service and voice, face, and gesture recognition functions. It also includes techniques for correcting bad pixels and distortion and compressing the image. Thanks to the three ‘HiFi 4’ audio processors, users can enjoy the best sound quality such as music, movies, and games. In order to stably run these functions, it supports LPDDR4X memory with a maximum capacity of 32GB (gigabytes) and a bandwidth of 68.3GB per second. It consists of 8 ‘Cortex-A76’ cores from Arm and 11 ‘Mali-G76’ graphic processing unit (GPU) cores running at a speed of up to 1.5 GHz (gigahertz) to control 4 displays at the same time. have. Up to 12 cameras are supported. Exynos Auto V7 safely stores key information such as One-Time Programmable (OTP) and also provides Physical Unclonable Function (PUF) technology.

The S2VPS01 functions to precisely and stably control the power supplied to the vehicle infotainment processor. Acquired ‘ASIL-B’ certification. ACIL is a system safety standard for vehicles. It is classified into A, B, C, and D based on the probability, severity, and controllability of the driver. In general, the infotainment system requires a level B level, Samsung explained. This product has a protection function against sudden changes in voltage and current, a heat-blocking function, and a self-diagnosis function.
