Samsung has developed the “brains” of the future Volkswagen


Samsung has unveiled two new chips for next-generation connected cars and multimedia systems: Exynos Auto T5123 and Exynos Auto V7. Both use ARM computing cores and low-power LPDDR4x RAM – and are already in mass production. The Exynos Auto V7 chip, for example, will be installed in Volkswagen’s on-board application servers (ICAS) developed by LG Electronics’ Vehicle Component Solutions.

Chip Exynos Auto T5123 is a telematics control unit with support for 5G networks in SA (autonomous, without using elements of previous generation communication networks) and NSA (non-autonomous, using the support elements of 4G networks) modes, providing data downloads at speeds up to 5 , 1 gigabit per second. It is equipped with two ARM Cortex-A55 processing cores, LPDDR4x RAM, satellite receiver and a high-speed PCIe bus.

The Exynos Auto V7 is tasked with managing in-board infotainment systems, including those that will appear on upcoming Volkswagen models. The chip integrates eight ARM Cortex-A76 computing cores and eleven ARM Mali G76 graphics cores. The latter are divided into two groups: three provide the operation of the digital “tidy” and the projection display with augmented reality, eight – the central screen and other subsystems.

In addition, the Exynos Auto V7 is equipped with a neural network (helps to recognize faces, speech and gestures) and four HiFi audio processors.

Electronic Brains can control up to four displays and 12 cameras. The image processing system can hide dead pixels, expand dynamic range, remove geometric distortions and reduce noise.

Also in the Exynos Auto V7 there are up to 32 gigabytes of LPDDR4x RAM and a separate cryptoprocessor with one-time programmable memory and a key generator based on a physically non-clonable function. The power management system is based on the S2VPS01 integrated circuit. It protects the chip from voltage surges, short circuits, overloads and overheating.
