Samsung Electronics’ Exynos processors will power the infotainment systems in Audi’s next generation automobiles, the South Korean tech giant announced. The company said that beginning with the supply deal, it will be expanding into the quickly-growing semiconductors-for-cars market.
Samsung’s Exynos processor for automobiles can support multiple displays and multiple operating systems at the same time, the company said. It can power up to four displays within the car at the same time and has strong graphic capabilities and fast read/write speeds. The processors will offer “the best driving experience” for drivers, it said.
Samsung has been attempting to expand into the car component market in recent years. The South Korean tech giant last year announced the acquisition of US auto parts giant Harman for $8 billion.
