A new collaboration between computing powerhouses could further enhance the way motorists interact with their vehicles.
Nvidia Corp. said Monday it has partnered with MediaTek, a Taiwanese company that makes semiconductors for wireless communications, to develop a platform that enhances automotive infotainment and cockpit features.
The two companies disclosed the partnership Monday at the Computex technology conference in Taipei.
Financial terms were not disclosed. Nor were potential automakers who intend to use the chipsets, though Danny Shapiro, vice president of Nvidia's automotive division, said the partners were already working with an automaker.
While one unnamed customer may already be in hand, he said the chips are intended to be used across mainstream and luxury models. The chips are expected to be in production in 2026 for model year 2027 vehicles.
"This is a new era of advanced user experiences for the software-defined car," Shapiro said, "and now we're bringing it to an entire range of vehicles."
