The Exynos Auto V920, a new automotive chip from Samsung designed exclusively for in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) systems, has just been unveiled. Samsung’s third generation automotive chip has many new features and enhancements.
The Exynos Auto V920 processor will be used by Samsung and Hyundai in their 2025 car models. The processor has 10 cores and uses Arm’s latest automotive chip architecture, offering 1.7 times the processing power of its predecessor.
The Exynos Auto V920 chip’s LPDDR5 memory capability is one of its key features, allowing it to manage six high-resolution displays and accommodate up to 12 camera sensors. The chip’s GPU core clocks at twice the speed of the previous generation, which also significantly improves graphics processing capabilities. The chip also enhances the AI capabilities, enabling a skilful exchange of data between the driver and the car.
The Exynos Auto V920 processor was designed with safety as Samsung’s top priority. The enhanced driver monitoring functions provided by the Neural Processing Unit (NPU), which is 2.7 times more powerful, enable faster and more accurate assessment of the car’s environment, improving overall safety.
The Exynos Auto V920 chip complies with the ASIL-B criteria outlined in the ISO 26262 standard to ensure compliance with international automotive safety standards. As a result, the chip can ensure the safety and reliability of the IVI system by detecting and managing problems in real time.
Samsung’s Exynos Auto V920 is a significant advancement in automotive technology that can meet the growing demands of modern in-car infotainment systems. Future Hyundai vehicles will benefit from a seamless and safe driving experience thanks to the chip’s powerful processing capabilities, support for multiple displays and cameras, enhanced AI capabilities and strict safety compliance.
