Nvidia automotive won't revive modems
It will leave connectivity to others
Jensen sparked our imagination by mentioning that a self-driving car will have a SoC or a small computer inside a car that will essentially talk with the cloud, and share the information with the system.
We asked Nvidia if that meant that future chips such as Xavier might include or revive the Icera modem business, and we got a clear "no" to that question. Several Nvidia executives, including the Senior Director of Automotive, Danny Shapiro, told us that Nvidia doesn’t plan to solve the communication puzzle.
Nvidia is not in the business of providing the communication medium, such as a 4G or 5G modem, as it plans to leave this to other manufacturers. It will be up to the car manufacturer to choose the modem and currently it seems that Qualcomm, Samsung and Intel might well be the companies to provide the connectivity in future cars.
