Samsung Electronics Co. said on Thursday it has clinched a deal with German carmaker Audi AG to supply automotive processors designed for in-vehicle information and entertainment systems.
The South Korean chipmaker, which first showcased the automotive chip brand in October 2018, said the Exynos Auto V9 will be utilised for in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) solutions for Audi cars, which deliver various information, as well as entertainment content, Yonhap news agency reported.
Through the IVI solution running on Exynos Auto V9, drivers will obtain details on conditions of automobiles on a real-time basis.
The Exynos Auto V9 will enable the IVI solution to control six displays at the same time and support up to 12 cameras, Samsung said.
With three graphics processing units, it is capable of running multiple applications simultaneously, it added.
The neural processing unit can also promptly and accurately process various data, including drivers’ voice, face and movements to provide optimized information.
