Samsung unveils its first automotive-branded processor

San Francisco: This week Samsung unveiled its first processor Exynos Auto V9 which is designed to be used by vehicles. It will power Audi’s upcoming in-vehicle infotainment systems. It is scheduled to debut in 2020. Reports suggested that the Exynos Auto V9 processor was specially designed by Samsung.  It is the company’s first auto-oriented chip and designed to power in-vehicle infotainment systems with several displays like Audi’s upcoming next-gen system intended to make its debut in 2020.

The processor is based on 8-nanometer process tech. It is packed with power and intelligence including eight ARM Cortex-A76 CPU cores. It  offeres speeds up to 3.2 GHz -- and the Mali G76 GPU, a premium HiFi 4 audio digital signal processor, an intelligent NPU that can give digital concierge services, and a security island core.

All of these characteristics work to hold up up to six displays and 12 camera connections to keep everyone in both the front and back seats entertained at the same time.  In addition the embedded safety island backs Automotive Safety Integrity Level (ASIL)-B standards.

However, Samsung, is not only in creating automobile-friendly technology but Qualcomm, Blackberry, and NVIDIA all have processors powering infotainment systems already on the way.
