Samsung announced the presence of a new line of chipsets, this time aimed at the automotive segment. One of them is the Exynos Auto T5123, which is claimed to be the first 5G chip for the automotive industry to adopt 5G technology.
Features of Samsung Exynos Auto T5123
Exynos Auto T5123 is a 3GPP Release 15 telematics control unit, which according to Samsung is specifically designed to provide fast and seamless 5G connections, both Standalone (SA) and Non-standalone (NSA) for next-generation cars.
This chip will later send various important information to the car in real-time, of course, thanks to the high-speed download capability of up to 5.1 Gbps.
Even more interesting, the Samsung Exynos Auto T5123 also supports the power-efficient PCIe and LPDDR4X mobile DRAM interfaces to process data received via the 5G modem. There is also a 2-core Cortex-A55 CPU and a built-in Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS). Currently the Exynos Auto T5123 has entered the production stage.
Samsung Exynos Auto V7
In addition to the Exynos Auto T5123, Samsung also introduced the Exynos Auto V7 which is designed for infotainment systems in vehicles. This chipset is equipped with an 8-core Cortex-A76 1.5GHz CPU and a Mali G76 GPU. The GPUs are separated into two groups, namely the ‘small’ 3-core for displays and AR-HUD, and the ‘large’ 8-core for Central Information Display and others.
Exynos V7 also has an NPU for virtual assistant affairs which can later support facial, voice, and gesture recognition features. In fact, this chipset is also ideal for use with up to 4 displays and 12 cameras. There are also three HiFi 4 audio processors and LPDDR4X up to 32 GB capacity. Just like the Auto T5123, the Auto V7 has also entered the production stage. Finally, Samsung also released S2VPS01 as a Power Management IC with ASIL-B certification for Auto T5123 and Auto V7.
