Samsung Electronics, a world leader in the latest semiconductor technology, recently disclosed its most modern automotive processor, which is Exynos Auto V920. Notably, this is selected in order to power Hyundai Motor Company’s next-gen in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) systems. While the same has been expected to roll out by 2025. At the same time, this marks the company’s first partnership with Hyundai Motor.
“We are thrilled to be collaborating with Hyundai Motor, a prominent global mobility manufacturer, and we anticipate that this partnership will further solidify our position in the automotive infotainment space,” said Jae Geol Pyee, Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing, System LSI Business at Samsung Electronics. “Through close collaboration with our global customers and ecosystem partners, we will continue to create state-of-the-art automotive chip solutions that offer a safe and enjoyable mobility experience.”
Talking about Exynos Auto V920 is Samsung’s third-generation automotive processor for advanced IVI systems. This has debuted with a lot of major upgrades in CPU, graphics, and neural processing performance. Parallelly, the V920 will substantially deliver optimal in-vehicle exposure by enabling real-time display of critical driving information. Along with seamless playback of graphics-rich video content and games on several displays.
The V920 CPU is equipped with 10 of Arm’s newest cores optimized for autonomous driving. This allows 1.7 times faster processing performance as compared to the previous generation. It comes with support for LPDDR5 memory’s cutting-edge speed. Since, the V920 can competently manage up to six high-resolution displays for dashboard, infotainment, and rear seat entertainment systems, and 12 camera sensors.
At the same time, essential improvements have been made to the processor’s graphics as well as artificial intelligence AI performance. It substantially enhances visual presentation on displays and optimizes driver interaction with in-car information. While, in order to give potential GUI, the V920 integrates advanced GPU cores with graphics processing capabilities.
Equipped with modern computing cores, the neural processing unit (NPU) is able to achieve 2.7 times faster performance with respect to the previous generation.
