Semiconductor manufacturer AMD has announced a strategic collaboration with ECARX, a global mobility tech company, to work together on an in-vehicle computing platform for next-generation electric vehicles (EVs), expected to be in mass production for global rollout in late 2023.
The ECARX digital cockpit will be the first in-vehicle platform to be offered with AMD’s Ryzen Embedded V2000 processors and Radeon RX 6000 Series GPUs along with ECARX hardware and software.
Combining the extensive experience in automotive digital cockpit design of ECARX with AMD advanced computing power and stunning visual graphic rendering capabilities, the companies aim to deliver an innovative in-car experience. The digital cockpit will launch with advanced features including driver information mode, heads-up display, rear seat entertainment, multiple-displays, multi-zone voice recognition, high-end gaming and a full 3D user experience.
“As car companies seek to deliver immersive experiences and intelligent features for their next-generation electric vehicles, the AMD-powered ECARX digital cockpit will address these needs for the global automotive market,” said Rajneesh Gaur, corporate vice president and general manager, Embedded Business, AMD. “We are excited to work with ECARX as our first strategic ecosystem partner in China for the digital cockpit using our Ryzen Embedded V2000 processers and Radeon RX 6000 Series GPUs.”
