Connectivity and multimedia innovator MediaTek is teaming with AI technology company NVIDIA to bring drivers and passengers what they call “new experiences inside the car”.
The partnership was announced jointly by MediaTek CEO Rick Tsai and NVIDIA founder and CEO Jensen Huang.
“NVIDIA is a world-renowned pioneer and industry leader in AI and computing. With this partnership, our collaborative vision is to provide a global one-stop shop for the automotive industry, designing the next generation of intelligent, always-connected vehicles,” said Tsai. “Through this special collaboration with NVIDIA, we will together be able to offer a truly unique platform for the compute-intensive, software-defined vehicle of the future.”
“AI and accelerated computing are fueling the transformation of the entire auto industry,” said Huang. “The combination of MediaTek’s industry-leading system-on-chip plus NVIDIA’s GPU and AI software technologies will enable new user experiences, enhanced safety and new connected services for all vehicle segments, from luxury to entry-level.”
NVIDIA offers GPUs for laptops, desktops, workstations and servers, along with systems-on-chips for automotive and robotics applications. With this new GPU chiplet, NVIDIA can extend its GPU and accelerated compute leadership across broader markets.
MediaTek will develop automotive SoCs and integrate the NVIDIA GPU chiplet, featuring NVIDIA AI and graphics intellectual property, into the design architecture. The chiplets are connected by an ultra-fast and coherent chiplet interconnect technology.
