TI's Jacinto 5 powers Audi car's infotainment system
Audi's MIB High system, the next-generation infotainment platform for Audi vehicles to incorporate TI's "Jacinto 5" automotive infotainment processor.
TI's Jacinto 5 automotive infotainment processor includes an integrated ARM Cortex-A8 core that manages middleware, drivers and applications stacks, along with a digital signal processor (DSP) that powers audio, radio and automotive low-level tasks.
"TI and Audi's collaboration has produced a truly paramount automotive infotainment system," said Matthew Watson, product line manager, audio and infotainment, TI. "Our scalable Jacinto 5 processing architecture enables Audi to equip consumers with leading-edge capabilities, without an on-going R&D investment for stable automotive features. The rich multimedia, high integration and extended lifecycle of the MIB High System will keep drivers and passengers entertained, informed and connected for the long run."
"When designing the MIB High system, it was clear that we would need a highly integrated, robust and adaptable processor for the RCC unit," said Dr. Peter Steiner, head of infotainment development AUDI AG. "TI's Jacinto 5 processor surpasses those needs, and ensures that drivers and passengers receive the best of automotive infotainment in our latest vehicles."
