LAS VEGAS -- Intel unveiled a new chip at the 2024 CES tech fair here, its first designed specifically for software-defined vehicles.
It also announced a deal to acquire Silicon Mobility, a French startup that designs EV energy management chips.
Intel demonstrated 12 advanced tasks, including high-definition video conferencing, gaming and generative artificial intelligence, all running at the same time across multiple operating systems on a chip.
Intel said its new platform allows automakers to run complex vehicle operations across a single architecture. Such a design improves efficiency and scalability while maintaining flexibility and allowing automakers to run different operating systems for different tasks, the company said.
Chinese automaker Zeekr will be the first automaker to use Intel's AI system on a chip to create "an enhanced living room experience" in vehicles, including AI voice assistants and video conferencing, Intel's automotive business chief Jack Weast said.
