BOISE, ID. Micron Technology, Inc. and Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. are joining forces on an advanced automotive connectivity solution that uses 5G networks for autonomous driving and direct cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) communication.
It’ll be based on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Automotive 5G Platform including a custom Micron 149-ball count multichip package, resulting in up to 20 times faster speeds over current LTE-Advanced modems.
The new platform will supply low latency, high data speed, and reliable cellular connection coverage essential for next-generation connected cars and autonomous driving.
“5G technology will drive further innovation in connected vehicles and deliver advanced functionality that is necessary for next-generation vehicles,” said Kris Baxter, Micron’s Embedded Business Unit’s vice president of marketing. “Integrating Micron’s multichip package with the Snapdragon Automotive 5G Platform will accelerate the push toward digitally enabled transportation solutions that enhance reliability and safety.”
