“Smarter, more connected vehicle technologies for richer onboard experiences, including entertainment, safety, and comfort,” said Jaehong Park, executive vice president of Samsung Electronics‘ System LSI Custom SOC Business. “With an advanced 5G modem, an improved multi-core processor and a market proven PMIC solution, Samsung is transferring its expertise in mobile solutions to its automotive lineup and is well-positioned to expand its presence in the industry.

The Industry’s First 5G Connectivity Solution for Automobiles is Exynos Auto T5123.

The Exynos Auto T5123 is a 3GPP version 15 telematics control unit specially designed to bring fast and seamless 5G connectivity in autonomous (SA) and non-autonomous (NSA) modes to the next generation of connected cars. It provides essential vehicle information in real-time via high-speed downloads of up to 5.1 gigabits per second (Gbps) and allows passengers to enjoy a range of new services such as streaming of high definition content. and video calls on the go. To efficiently process large amounts of data transmitted and received through the 5G modem, the Exynos Auto T5123 supports a high-speed PCIe (PCI Express) interface and high-performance LPDDR4x low-power mobile DRAM.

Exynos Auto V7: A High-Performance IVI Processor for Mid- to High-End Vehicles

Exynos Auto V7 is the latest addition to Samsung’s line of automotive processors and is designed for vehicle infotainment systems. For powerful processing performance, the V7 incorporates eight 1.5 gigahertz (GHz) Arm CortexA76 processor cores and 11 Arm Mali G76 GPU cores. into two separate groups, with three cores in the “small” domain for cluster displays and ARHUDs and eight cores in the “large” domain for central information display (CID) and the like. This physical separation allows the GPU to support multiple systems at the same time and provides a more secure operation as it prevents one domain from interfering with another. In addition to its powerful CPU and GPU, the V7 is equipped with an NPU for convenient services such as virtual assistance which can process visual and audio data to recognize facial, verbal or gesture characteristics.

For a safer and more enjoyable driving experience,  Exynos Auto V7 supports up to four screens and 12 camera inputs that provide information to assist drivers and passengers. The V7’s imaging system provides poor pixel correction, dynamic range compression, and geometric distortion correction to provide quiet, distortion-free images for features like panoramic view and park assist. For immersive in-car entertainment, the chip is equipped with three HiFi 4 audio processors that deliver excellent sound qualities for songs, movies, and even games on the go. To perform all of these features as easily as possible, the V7 has an LPDDR4x memory capacity of up to 32 gigabytes (GB) which offers high bandwidth of up to 68.3 gigabytes per second (GB /s).

Exynos Auto V Series S2VPS01 – ASIL-B Certified Power Management IC

S2VPS01 is a PMIC specially designed and developed for  Exynos Auto V9 and V7. This is the first automotive solution from Samsung produced under the ISO 26262 functional safety process certification which was acquired in 2019 and also achieved  ASILB certification in 2021. An automotive sector The level of safety integrity ( ASIL), specified in ISO 26262, ranges from A to D, where D is the highest level.

The S2VPS01 regulates and rectifies the flow of electricity, enabling the reliable and robust performance of the vehicle’s infotainment system. It is made up of high-efficiency three-phase / two-phase step-down converters and incorporates a low voltage drop regulator (LDO) and real-time clock (RTC) in the housing. For protection against harsh thermal and electrical conditions, the power supply integrated circuit is equipped with various protection functions including overvoltage protection (OVP), Undervoltage protection (UVP), overvoltage protection short circuits (SCP), over current protection (OCP), thermal shutdown protection (TSD), clock monitoring and locked output controls.
