Digital Cockpit - the Future of In-Vehicle Technology and User Experience

During the transition to Software-Defined Vehicle (SDV), the user experience becomes a key differentiator for automakers. This especially affects infotainment/cockpit system architecture design, and many separate ECU systems such as head unit and instrument cluster are being integrated into the cockpit. Infineon's broad product portfolio will enable cockpit solutions which can provide drivers and passengers with advanced UI/UX experiences.

Automotive electronics systems are currently evolving from hardware-mechanical-centric platforms to software-defined vehicle (SDV) architectures, driven by rapidly growing demand for autonomous driving and enhanced user experience.

During this transition to SDV, the user experience becomes a key differentiator for automakers. Consumers expect the same experience in vehicle as at home or in the office with more intelligent and personalized Infotainment systems. They expect higher-resolution displays to stream media content; increased connectivity for entertainment; certain safety features and more sensors to better serve their vehicle user experience. This especially affects Infotainment/Cockpit system architecture design, where many separate ECU systems such as Head Unit and Instrument Cluster are being integrated into the Cockpit. As automotive E/E architecture moves towards higher performance computers, system integration will become mainstream supported by powerful application processors and software platforms, and will lead the Cockpit system to be scalable and extensible in the future.

As a leading automotive semiconductor manufacturer, Infineon has a broad product portfolio in infotainment/cockpit systems, especially after the acquisition of Cypress Semiconductor in 2020. In addition to a wide range of products such as controllers, wireless, memory and power supplies, Infineon offers different types of automotive-grade sensor products for intuitive in-car sensing use cases such as voice and security, DMS and 3D facial recognition.
