Samsung has introduced three system semiconductors for next-gen vehiclesSamsung Electronics unveiled three types of system semiconductors for next-generation vehicles: The Exynos Auto T5123 is the first in the industry to provide 5G communication service as a communication chip for vehicles, supporting high-speed downloads of up to 5.1 Gbps. Through this, users can download high-capacity and high-quality content without interruption even while driving. In particular, this product has a built-in multi-mode communication chip based on the latest 5G technology to support both the SA mode (Stand Alone) that uses the 5G network alone and the NSA mode (Non-Stand Alone) that uses the LTE network together. Through this, users can send and receive data stably and quickly anytime, anywhere. The Exynos Auto T5123 has two ARM Cortex-A55 cores and GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) to make it easier to develop a telematics system. In addition, this product supports the high-speed interface PCIe, PCI Express, and the low-power, high-performance mobile DRAM LPDDR4X so that the vehicle can efficiently process fast data transmitted and received through the 5G modem. In addition, this product satisfies AEC-Q100 (Automotive Electronics Council-Q100), the reliability evaluation standard for automotive parts.

The Exynos Auto V7 was installed in the Volkswagen ICAS 3.1 infotainment system manufactured by LG Electronics' VS (Vehicle component Solutions) business headquarters. The product is equipped with a Neural Processing Unit (NPU) for artificial intelligence calculations and provides virtual assistant services, voice, face, and motion recognition functions. In addition, it has built-in image compression technology (DRC: Dynamic Range Compression) for a clear picture and allows users to enjoy music, movies, and games with the best sound quality through 3 HiFi 4 audio processors. Support. To run these functions stably, it supports LPDDR4X memory with a capacity of up to 32 GB and a bandwidth of 68.3 GB per second.

In addition, it consists of eight ARM Cortex-A76 cores and an 11-core Mali-G76 GPU clocked up to 1.5GHz to simultaneously display up to 4 displays. It can be controlled and supports up to 12 cameras. In particular, the graphic processing unit (GPU) is divided into two groups so that each application, such as a digital instrument panel, a central information processing unit (CID), and a head-up display (HUD), operates stably and independently. Finally, the Exynos Auto V7 is equipped with an independent security processor for data security to safely store key information such as OTP (One-Time Programmable), and provides physical cloning prevention technology (PUF, Physical Unclonable Function). do.

The Samsung S2VPS01 a power management chip that has obtained Acyl-B certification - this is a vehicle system safety standard, and is divided into four levels (A, B, C, D) based on the possibility, severity, and driver controllability of an accident. In general, infotainment systems require a level B level. The chip performs a key function of precisely and stably controlling the power supplied to the processor for in-vehicle infotainment (IVI). In addition, it is equipped with a protection function against sudden changes in voltage and current, a heat-blocking function, and a self-diagnosis function to increase stability even in a use environment where failures may occur.
