SEOUL, Nov 30 (Reuters) – Samsung Electronics (005930.KS) on Tuesday revealed new auto chips targeting demand for advanced chips in cars, including one mounted in Volkswagen’s (VOWG_p.DE) infotainment system developed by LG Electronics (066570.KS).

Demand is rising for “high-tech” automotive chips that can handle more entertainment consumption and increased electrical components in cars, Samsung said in a statement, saying that it plans to actively respond to the growing demand.about:blankReport ad

The chips, developed by Samsung’s logic chip design business System LSI, include a chip enabling 5G-based telecommunications for downloading high-definition video content during transit, and a power management chip for stable electricity supply.

A third chip, an infotainment processor that can control up to four displays and 12 cameras at once, has been mounted in Volkswagen’s high-performance computer called In Car Application Server (ICAS) 3.1, developed by LG Electronics’ vehicle components business, Samsung said.Report ad
