Under the agreement, announced at the Computex technology trade show in Taipei, MediaTek will integrate an Nvidia graphic processing unit chiplet and Nvidia software into system-on-chips it supplies to automakers for infotainment displays.
MediaTek systems using Nvidia software would be compatible with automated driving systems based on Nvidia technology, the companies said. Dashboard displays could show the environment around the vehicle, while cameras would monitor the driver.
Nvidia Chief Executive Jensen Huang said: "The automotive industry needs strong companies that can work with the industry for decades at a time. The quality, strength and positions of our two companies could give the automotive industry partners that they can build their companies on," he said,
The Nvidia and MediaTek partnership would provide chips that can power "every single segment of a car," Huang said.
