South Korean technology company Samsung announced the company’s plans to start production of a new series of chips specifically for electric vehicles.
Samsung will develop chips for electric vehicles and self-driving cars.
According to Autoevolution, the new products poised to enter mass production in the near future are DDR4 RAM memory, GDDR6 graphics memory, UFS storage chips, and SSDs, all built specifically for electric vehicles.
In preparing a number of components for modern cars, Samsung has tried to improve on completely new technologies. For example, Samsung has prepared a 256GB SSD which is stated to be seven times faster than the current eMMC storage chips.
In addition, Samsung’s new product line is said to have faster and more sophisticated capabilities in the car.
The company says its products can drive autonomous driving systems, but tasks many car owners now want include navigation, video streaming and even 3D gaming.
Finally, Samsung confirms that the automotive solutions they have developed are also AEC-Q100 compliant, meaning they can be safely installed in cars and operate in the most extreme temperatures ranging from -40 degrees Celsius to +105 degrees Celsius.
