Samsung will supply its Exynos processors to Audi for use in its upcoming vehicles, Samsung has announced. The Exynos System-on-Chip (SoC) solutions will be implemented into Audi’s next-generation In Vehicle Infotainment (IVI) system, as Samsung takes further steps into the automobiles market.
Samsung’s Exynos processors feature multi-OS and multi-display support allowing them to power up to four different displays in a vehicle at any given time. “Samsung is fully dedicated to delivering robust and reliable yet high-performing solution to Audi for the next level of driving enjoyment,” said Charlie Bae, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing, System LSI Business at Samsung Electronics.
Samsung has used its Exynos processors to power smart devices since 2010 with the introduction of the Samsung Galaxy S smartphone. According to etnews, Samsung beat competitors Qualcomm, Intel and Nvidia for the opportunity to supply the chipsets to Audi.
“With Exynos processors, Samsung has proven its technology leadership in performance, reliability and innovative packaging solutions,” said Alfons Pfaller, Head of Infotainment Development at Audi.
Samsung and Audi have yet to reveal when the first of these vehicles will go on sale.
