AMD and ECARX to Collaborate on Immersive Digital Cockpit In-Vehicle Computing Platform for Next-Generation Electric Vehicles

Advanced digital cockpit will be powered by AMD Ryzen꽓 Embedded V2000 Processor and AMD Radeon꽓 RX 6000 Series GPUs

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Aug. 04, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE)  AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) today announ짯ced a stra짯te짯gic col짯la짯bo짯ra짯ti짯on with ECARX, a glo짯bal mobi짯li짯ty tech com짯pa짯ny. The com짯pa짯nies will work tog짯e짯ther on an in-vehic짯le com짯pu짯ting plat짯form for next-gene짯ra짯ti짯on elec짯tric vehic짯les (EVs), expec짯ted to be in mass pro짯duc짯tion for glo짯bal roll짯out in late 2023. The ECARX digi짯tal cock짯pit will be the first in-vehic짯le plat짯form to be offe짯red with AMD Ryzen Embedded V2000 pro짯ces짯sors and AMD Rade짯on RX 6000 Series GPUs along with ECARX hard짯ware and software.

Com짯bi짯ning the exten짯si짯ve expe짯ri짯ence in auto짯mo짯ti짯ve digi짯tal cock짯pit design of ECARX with AMD advan짯ced com짯pu짯ting power and stun짯ning visu짯al gra짯phic ren짯de짯ring capa짯bi짯li짯ties, the com짯pa짯nies aim to deli짯ver an inno짯va짯ti짯ve in-car expe짯ri짯ence. The digi짯tal cock짯pit will launch with advan짯ced fea짯tures inclu짯ding dri짯ver infor짯ma짯ti짯on mode, heads-up dis짯play, rear seat enter짯tain짯ment, mul짯ti짯ple-dis짯plays, mul짯ti-zone voice reco짯gni짯ti짯on, high-end gam짯ing and a full 3D user experience.

As car com짯pa짯nies seek to deli짯ver immersi짯ve expe짯ri짯en짯ces and intel짯li짯gent fea짯tures for their next-gene짯ra짯ti짯on elec짯tric vehic짯les, the AMD-powered ECARX digi짯tal cock짯pit will address the짯se needs for the glo짯bal auto짯mo짯ti짯ve mar짯ket, said Raj짯nee짯sh Gaur, cor짯po짯ra짯te vice pre짯si짯dent and gene짯ral mana짯ger, Embedded Busi짯ness, AMD. 쏻e are exci짯ted to work with ECARX as our first stra짯te짯gic eco짯sys짯tem part짯ner in Chi짯na for the digi짯tal cock짯pit using our Ryzen Embedded V2000 pro짯ces짯sors and Rade짯on RX 6000 Series GPUs.

The glo짯bal auto짯mo짯ti짯ve indus짯try is trans짯forming towards an intel짯li짯gent future at an unpre짯ce짯den짯ted pace with demand for com짯pu짯ting power and gra짯phics capa짯bi짯li짯ties rapidly incre짯asing, said Ziyu Shen, Chair짯man and CEO of ECARX. 쏻ith this col짯la짯bo짯ra짯ti짯on, we will fur짯ther enable OEMs and tier 1 sup짯pli짯ers to enhan짯ce their digi짯tal cock짯pit expe짯ri짯en짯ces as they seek to crea짯te grea짯ter con짯su짯mer value through intel짯li짯gent con짯nec짯ted cars.

The auto짯mo짯ti짯ve EV mar짯ket, as well as the tech짯no짯lo짯gy requi짯red to sup짯port it, repres짯ents an unpre짯ce짯den짯ted growth oppor짯tu짯ni짯ty in the years ahead accor짯ding to ana짯lyst firm, Stra짯tegy Ana짯ly짯tics. EV adop짯ti짯on is now a key under짯ly짯ing fac짯tor for growth in the auto짯mo짯ti짯ve semi짯con짯duc짯tor mar짯ket and the asso짯cia짯ted semi짯con짯duc짯tor demand is fore짯cast to grow at a CAAGR of 31% over 2021 2026, said Asif Anwar, exe짯cu짯ti짯ve direc짯tor PBCS and EVS, Stra짯tegy Ana짯ly짯tics. 쏷he EV revo짯lu짯ti짯on is here, with next-gene짯ra짯ti짯on EV plat짯forms at the lea짯ding edge of domain- and zonal-based archi짯tec짯tu짯re dri짯ving adop짯ti짯on of the digi짯tal cock짯pit, ADAS and the con짯nec짯ted vehicle.
