Data Wrangling Solutions for Connected Cars

  • mail

We recently announced three new automotive chip solutions that will deliver enriched in-vehicle experiences in future generations of connected cars: • Exynos Auto T5123 advanced 5G modem for vehicle connectivity • Exynos Auto V7 AI-enhanced multi-core processor for in-vehicle infotainment • ASIL-B certified S2VPS01 power management integrated circuit (PMIC) Let’s dig into these high-tech, ultra-advanced new solutions. What do they do, and how will they improve the next generation of connected vehicles? Exynos Auto T5123: The Industry’s First 5G Modem for Vehicles

The Exynos Auto T5123[1] delivers fast, seamless 5G connectivity (with download speeds of up to 5.1Gbps) to newer connected cars, for high-def streaming and smooth, freeze-free video calls. The T5123 also includes two Cortex-A55 CPU cores and a built-in Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS[2]). To manage the rivers of data streaming into the modem, the T5123 also supports a high-speed PCIe interface and Samsung LPDDR4x DRAM. Why is this exciting? Well, this is the industry’s first 5G modem for vehicles, and it’s already in mass production, meaning 5G will be coming to new cards, trucks and SUVs in the near future. Exynos Auto V7: A Powerful Processor for IVI Systems The Exynos Auto V7 is a powerful automotive processor for in-vehicle infotainment. How powerful? We’ve integrated eight 1.5GHz Arm Cortex-A76 CPU cores, 11 Arm Mali G76 GPU cores, a neural processing unit (NPU) and up to 32GB of LPDDR4x DRAM (with a bandwidth of up to 68.3GBps).

The V7’s NPU enables AI-assisted services—like virtual assistance—that need to recognize human faces, speech and gestures. It supports up to four displays and 12 camera inputs. V7’s imaging system also prevents image distortion[3], making systems that help drivers, like parking assistance and backup camera operation, that much better. The V7 also includes three HiFi 4 audio processors, delivering outstanding audio for music, movies and video games, making road trips with the family a breeze. If you’re wondering about personal security with all that data being moved around, rest assured that the Auto V7 includes strong data protection[4]. Where will you find the Exynos Auto V7? It’s already available in Volkswagen’s In-Car Application-Server (ICAS) 3.1[5]. S2VPS01 – An ASIL-B Certified Power Management IC for the Exynos Auto V Series The S2VPS01 is a power management integrated circuit (PMIC) specifically designed and developed for the Exynos Auto V9 and V7 processors. It regulates and rectifies the flow of electrical power of the vehicle infotainment system’s processor, enabling robust and reliable performance for in-car screens, speakers, sensors, and cameras. Not as sexy as the 5G connectivity? Power management might not seem exciting, but it is essential to managing increasingly complex, computer-centered vehicles.

The S2VPS01 comprises highly efficient triple/dual-phase buck converters[6];and integrates a low-dropout regulator (LDO), a real-time clock (RTC), and several systems to protect against harsh thermal and electrical conditions. S2VPS01 is certified under ISO 26262 and ASIL-B safety standards (that means it meets specific safety standards for its category/function within passenger vehicles). We’re excited to offer these three new chip solutions and are already working on future products that will continue to make driving safer (and perhaps more fun). [1] For those who are interested, it’s a 3GPP Release 15 telematics control unit. [2] The GNSS helps limit use of external integrated circuits and reduces the T5123’s overall development time. [3] Image improvement features include bad pixel correction, dynamic range compression and geometric distortion correction. [4] Specifically, the V7 uses an isolated security processor for crypto operation and provides a hardware key using a one-time programmable (OTP) or physical unclonable function (PUF). [5] Developed by LG Electronics’ Vehicle Component Solutions division. [6] Also known as a step-down converter, a buck converter reduces voltage from the main power input to an output that will be used by lower voltage components. Buck converters are often used to step down a computer’s main supply voltage (typically 12V) to the lower voltages used by DRAM and CPU.
