The CEO Pat Gelsinger from Intel provides that the semiconductors of the chips will account for more than 20% of the bill of materials (BOM) total premium cars by 2030. Growth of 5 times the 4% recorded in 2019. Cars are getting smarter and need chips to do so.
For Intel, chips in 2030 will be 20% of auto components
By the end of the decade, the semiconductor market for vehicles will double. It will touch 115 billion dollars, equal to more than 11% of the entire semiconductor TAM. According to Gelsinger this is part of the “Digitization of everything”. And it serves to cover the “four superpowers” of the automotive industry: ubiquitous computing, pervasive connectivity, cloud-to-edge infrastructure and artificial intelligence.
“This new era of high demand for semiconductors requires thinking big and bold,” he said Gelsinger. “As CEO of Intel, I have the great privilege of being able to deploy the energies of 116,000 employees and a huge chip design and manufacturing ecosystem to meet this demand.”
Mobileye: from the garage to the street
Intel is investing heavily in making the automotive industry smarter. In the autonomous driving sector, the CEO of the Mobileye subsidiary Amnon Shashua described the detection system, which aims at scalability and security at all levels of autonomy.
At the keynote we could also see the first production autonomous vehicle (AV) of Mobileye equipped with the autonomous driving system Mobileye Drive™ and bearing the trademark MoovitAV. “Mobileye is thrilled to bring autonomous vehicles to market,” he said Shashua. “Mobileye’s new AV, available through the MoovitAV service, is an important milestone in a world of driverless vehicles.”
Jack Weast, Mobileye’s Intel Fellow and Vice President of Automotive Standards then discussed the draft standard IEEE 2846. Asking: “What is the most appropriate level of security?” With the aim of making the world of autonomous driving safer. “IEEE 2846 will provide regulatory authorities with the essential tool they need to accommodate AVs on roads around the world,” said Weast.
