“Intel is taking a ‘whole vehicle’ approach to solving the industry’s biggest challenges,” says Intel vp Jack Weast “the acquisition of Silicon Mobility aligns with our sustainability goals while addressing a critical energy management need for the industry.”
Silicon Mobility is a portfolio company of Cipio Partners and Capital-E whose SoCs feature accelerators purpose-built for energy delivery and co-designed with software algorithms to make gains in vehicle energy efficiency.
Silicon Mobility’s technology portfolio will extend Intel’s reach in the vehicle beyond high-performance compute into intelligent and programmable power devices.
The EV transition alongside customer demand for in-vehicle experiences fuels Intel’s strategy to enable the SDV (Software Defined Vehicle).
Intel also announced a commitment to deliver the industry’s first open UCIe-based chiplet platform for SDVs. Intel will work with imec to ensure the packaging technologies meet the quality and reliability requirements of the automotive industry. Intel will also chair a new industry-defining international standard for EV power management.
Intel intends that its expanded AI-enhanced “whole vehicle” roadmap will move the industry toward a more scalable, software-defined and sustainable future.
