Global mobility tech provider ECARX Holdings Inc. has announced that its Antora 1000 computing platform, which powers the digital cockpit experience in the Lynk & Co 06 EM-P SUV, has entered mass production.
The marks a milestone in the existing partnership between ECARX and Lynk & Co is, following the recent debut of the Lynk & Co 08 EM-P SUV, the first vehicle to launch with ECARX’s full-stack solution including the ECARX Antora 1000 Pro digital cockpit computing platform.
The Antora 1000 “elevates cockpit convenience and safety to new heights in the Lynk & Co 06 EM-P SUV”, ECARX says. It powers a 14.6in floating central control screen and a 10.2in TFT instrument cluster to support a diverse range of interactive functions and immersive experiences – from online navigation and voice command features to karaoke and e-sports.
The platform features a technical specification that includes the SE1000, a 7nm automotive-grade system-on-a-chip, delivering 100k DMIPS of computing power and 900G FLOPS for graphic rendering. This is achieved through a multi-core, heterogeneous computing engine and an efficient hardware architecture that operates without virtualization. In benchmarking tests conducted by AnTuTu, the SE1000 outperformed comparable processors from its peers, scoring over 500,000 and showcasing a 20% improvement in performance.
Complementing its processing prowess, the chip incorporates a high-performance programmable neural processing unit (NPU) and multiple acceleration engines, providing a 8 TOPS (trillions or tera operations per second). The SE1000 is further enhanced with configurability options, supporting up to 16GB of memory and 128GB of storage to ensure robust performance.
In addition, the chip prioritizes automotive-grade functional safety, incorporating solutions and certifications for information security.
