Digital cockpit Antora 1000 computing platform powers Lynk SUV

A digital cockpit experience is enabled in the EM-P SUV by Lynk, courtesy of the Ecarx Antora 1000 computing platform.

The 08 EM-P SUV was the first vehicle to use Ecarx’s Antora 1000 Pro cockpit computing platform and now the 06 model is released with a 14.6-inch floating central control screen and a 10.2-inch TFT instrument cluster to support a diverse range of interactive functions and immersive experiences, from online navigation and voice command features to karaoke and e-sports.

The Antora 1000 features the SE1000 7nm automotive-grade SoC which provides 100k DMIPS (Dhrystone million instructions per second) of computing power and 900G FLOPS (floating point operations per second) of graphic rendering capability through a multi-core, heterogeneous computing engine and hardware architecture without virtualisation. This earned an AnTuTu benchmarking performance test score of over 500,000 which is approximately 20 per cent better than comparable processors currently available, said Ecarx.

There is also a programmable NPU (neural processing unit) and multiple acceleration engines capable of 8 Tera operations per second.

Memory is configurable to 16gByte and there is 128Gbyte of storage. It also has automotive-grade functional safety and information security solutions and certifications.
