Future cars will become more intelligent, which puts forward higher requirements for automotive information processing chips. Automakers around the world have begun to get involved in chip manufacturing. In the first half of the year, Tesla released its second-generation fully self-driving car processor chip, its main feature is 14nm process production, with a GPU and an NPU, and a 12-core CPU.
Now, Geely has released the first SoC designed and produced by it, which will be equipped in Boyue SOn UV Pro
This chip is jointly developed by Geely’s subsidiary Ecarx Ecarx and the fabless semiconductor company MediaTek MediaTek. The SoC model "E01" is equipped with a 64-bit quad-core CPU, Dedicated GPU (graphics processing unit) and 4G cellular modem. In the first quarter of 2020, a more powerful E02 processor will be launched, equipped with an 8-core CPU and an independent NPU (Neural Processing Unit). Geely's E-series chips promote greater artificial intelligence capabilities and better connections, which will play a key role in Geely's independent development of fully autonomous vehicles in the future.
Using SoC technology, it can be combined into an independent computer chip, just like Tesla's "fully autonomous driving computer" or FSD computer chip, through the built-in 4G wireless communication network, it can meet the needs of car information processing Connect with cars. The GPU processor unit built into the Geely E01 chipset can process graphics data for the fully automated driving camera. Through the calculation and analysis of the 64-bit quad-core 14nm process CPU, it can effectively meet the requirements of fully automated driving.
Geely Automobile launched its self-designed chip, mainly in response to the future demand for smart chips for fully autonomous vehicles and to meet the more powerful entertainment and communication functions of future automobiles. Geely Automobile is keenly aware that the car is about to Signals of change are now getting involved in chip manufacturing to keep up with automotive trends.
