Continuing its “AI Everywhere” push, Intel announced plans to drive the company’s AI everywhere strategy into the automotive market, including a deal to acquire Silicon Mobility, a fabless silicon and software company that specialises in SoCs for intelligent electric vehicle (EV) energy management.
Intel also announced a new family of AI-enhanced software-defined vehicle system-on-chips (SoCs), with Chinese company Zeekr as the first original equipment manufacturer (OEM) to adopt the new SoC to deliver its generative AI-driven living room experiences to next-generation vehicles.
“Intel is taking a ‘whole vehicle’ approach to solving the industry’s biggest challenges. Driving innovative AI solutions across the vehicle platform will help the industry navigate the transformation to EVs,” said Jack Weast, vice president and general manager of Intel Automotive. “The acquisition of Silicon Mobility aligns with our sustainability goals while addressing a critical energy management need for the industry.”

The new family of AI-enhanced SDV SoCs address a critical industry need for power and performance scalability. The family of SoCs feature AI acceleration capabilities from Intel’s AI PC roadmap to enable the most desirable in-vehicle AI use cases, such as driver and passenger monitoring.
A demo showed 12 advanced workloads – including generative AI, e-mirrors, high-definition video conference calling and PC games – running concurrently across multiple operating systems, including mixed critical use cases. The demo shows how automakers can consolidate legacy electronic control unit (ECU) architecture to improve efficiency, manageability and scalability – all while integrating their own custom solutions and AI applications.
“Intel’s AI-enhanced SDV SoCs combine the best of AI PC and Intel data center technologies necessary to support a true software-defined vehicle architecture,” Weast said.
Intel also announced its intent to work with R&D hub imec to ensure Intel’s advanced chiplet packaging technologies meet the strict quality and reliability requirements necessary for automotive use cases.
