Samsung and Tesla already have a longstanding relationship, being responsible for producing the processors responsible for the autonomous driving functionalities of electric cars. However, the processor that is currently used is already quite outdated, which may be delaying the development of new technologies.
Now, according to information advanced by a South Korean newspaper, the two companies are joining forces again to develop a new processor for their autonomous cars. This processor must present a 5nm lithography (Extreme Ultraviolet), which only Samsung and TSMC can manufacture.
Considering that the current processor is still manufactured with a 14nm lithography, the jump in its performance level could allow an exponential evolution of the capabilities of Tesla cars.
Samsung wants to become the world’s largest processor manufacturer
Over the past few years Samsung has made it increasingly clear that one of its goals was to become the largest processor manufacturer in the world. However, until recently it had Huawei as a great rival. With Huawei out of the equation, it seems that Samsung has an open path so that it can take the lead in this segment very soon.
If this new collaboration with Tesla shows the desired results, it could represent a giant step for Samsung. The electric car market continues to show incredible growth, and shows no signs of slowing down. In addition, with a 5nm processor, Samsung would be able to “vaporize” its big rival in this market, TSMC.
TSMC expanded its portfolio to electric cars last year, launching a 7nm lithography processor. Therefore, the new processor developed by Samsung and Tesla could be the asset that the manufacturer so badly needs to take the lead.
