MediaTek Launches Dimensity Auto for Smart Vehicles: Here’s What We Know
The Taiwanese semiconductor manufacturer, MediaTek has launched Dimensity Auto. The next-generation automotive platform will enable automobile manufacturers to incorporate more features into their cars with its advanced technologies.
Here’s more about it.
MediaTek Dimensity Auto
MediaTek, the 4th largest global fabless semiconductor company in the world has just introduced its very own automotive platform, the Dimensity Auto bringing a lot of advanced and cutting-edge technologies to make future-ready, intelligent cars.
The chipset has a scalable AI multi-processor which is equipped with a deep learning accelerometer(MDLA) and a vision processing unit(MVPU). The newly developed chipset also ensures more battery efficiency and reduces the battery consumption of the vehicle.
The chipset also incorporates MediaTek’s MiraVision smart display technology which is capable of supporting multiple displays with upto 8K HDR display screens that have refresh rates of 120Hz. It also provides support for several HDR-native cameras and the support for advanced integrated display technology allows car manufacturers to add flexible OLED screens and large display screens along with multi-display options on their EV units.
The MediaTek Dimensity Auto also offers multiple entertainment options with a fast boot time of sub-1s. A dedicated DSP(Digital Signal Processor) is also provided for microphone audio processing
Regarding its communication technologies, the chipset’s communication technologies are based on 3GPP open standards and include MediaTek 5G NTN, V2X, and 5G RedCap. The chipset also supports Wi-Fi 7 and is equipped with MediaTek’s hardware networking accelerator. It will also support high interoperability and coexistence of multiple wireless networks which includes Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and 5G.
For location positioning, the chipset uses the best technologies with which determining the position and navigating through underground parking structures, tunnels, and other such satellite dead zones becomes possible. The chipset also offers a full range of assured power management(PMIC) solutions with comprehensive GNSS coverage enabling more accurate positioning.
With all these cutting-edge technologies introduced in the chipset, the latest MediaTek Dimensity Auto will enable car manufacturers in making their vehicles future-ready with many advanced features onboard.
