On August 31 at IFA 2018, Huawei officially unveiled the Next generation mobile SoC processor “Kirin 980” at IFA 2018 in Germany, claimed to be dazzlingly powerful.
Yu Chengdong, Senior Vice President, Huawei Technologies, announced Kirin 980 which is created ‘the first’ in many aspects, such as the first 7nm process SoC, ARM A76 architecture CPU, dual NPU, Mali-G76 GPU, first to feature 1.4Gbps Cat.21 baseband and first to support LPDDR4X-2133 memory.
The Kirin 980 is equipped with eight CPU cores (four A76 and four A55), ten GPU cores, dual ISP, i8 sensor processor, security engine, UFS 2.1, Wi-Fi audio, and 4K video processor.
According to TSMC’s data, 7nm can achieve 20% performance improvement compared to 10nm, 40% energy efficiency improvement, 60% transistor density increase, and applied to Kirin 980, integrating up to 6.9 billion transistors.
Kirin 970 (10nm 5.5 billion) increased by 25%, while transistor density increased by 55 %, and the chip area is only equivalent to the size of the fingernail.
The new SoC first adopts the ARM Cortex-A76 architecture, which is 75% better than the previous generation Kirin 970 A73, and the energy efficiency is increased by 58%. Compared to the Snapdragon 845, the Kirin 980 claims a 37% higher performance and a 32% higher energy efficiency.
Yu Chengdong said that Kirin 980 has invested in more than 1,000 senior semiconductor process experts after 36 months of research and development.
According to Huawei officials, the Kirin 980 is the industry’s first mobile SoC processor with dual-core NPU. It can realize 4,500 images per minute and supports AI scenes such as face recognition, object recognition, and object detection.
It is reported that Kirin 980 can also achieve AI scenes such as face recognition, object recognition, object detection, image segmentation, and intelligent translation under the strong computing power of the dual NPU. It adopts a higher precision deep network and has better performance. Real-time, for a better experience.
Huawei launched complete smart gas station solutions
Huawei has released its new smart solutions for the gas station that are very convenient for the users and can save time. These Huawei gas station solutions can be helpful in refueling, making payment easier, large screen display, and more.
With the help of this, the smartphone will display the owner’s detail including the fuel dispenser, and the gasoline model. Once the refining is done, the owners don’t need to get out of the car of payment.
Just select the payment method from the list that includes cash, fuel card, bank card, WeChat, Alipay, and other methods by tapping on the smartphone screen. Also, the system will automatically pay according to the amount of refueling, and the owner can issue an electronic invoice in the App or Mini Program (for registered users).
In addition to this, it automatically applies the latest discounts available on some non-fuel products, as well as the customized one-person-a-car precision push customized for each owner, which will also appear here.
Huawei Atlas 500 Smart Station and SDC software-defined camera edge bring smart brains to gas stations and play the role of “smart sentry”. It can accurately collect and identify all the specific information of inbound vehicles, including license plate, vehicle logo, model, color, and more.
It can perform intelligent analysis, accurate “vehicle-lane-fuel gun” to realize automation correlates closely regarding refueling and payment.
In the smart gas station built by Huawei, if the car owner is a registered member vehicle then the smart big screen will display the member’s basic information and fueling habits, including fuel product, amount, etc., and automatically allocate available fuel guns. If the fueler is busy, the car owner can also pick up the gun and refuel without waiting. The Huawei gas station solution surely makes refueling with easily for consumers.
Huawei gets approval for two communication technologies for vehicles
On November 3, Huawei has received approval for the two-communication technologies and both of these can be used in the fields of Internet of Vehicles, autonomous driving, and more. These patents were published in China.
The Huawei patent was published with announcement number CN113746606A the first patent that provides a vehicles communication method and device for V2X, intelligent networked vehicles, intelligent driving, assisted driving, and other fields. It can solve the current technical problem of the lack of SL TCI logo indication.
While the patent with CN113747577A provides a communication method and device that can be applied to D2D or Internet of Vehicles, such as V2X, LTE-V, and more. Additionally, it can be used in fields such as smart driving and smart connected vehicles. This patent facilitates device equipment to exclude resources that have been reserved by other device equipment as much as possible to reduce transmission interference.
Huawei patent for detecting automatic driving system:
On the same day – November 3, Huawei also published a patent in the field of automobile technology entitled with detecting automatic driving systems with announcement number CN113741374.
The patent technology can also detect the failure reason of the automatic driving system, and use the detected automatic driving system to control the driving of the vehicle. The technical solution proposed in this application helps to improve the overall safety of the vehicle.
Huawei patents two way charging technology for electric vehicles
In April 2020, Huawei filed a patent for charging and discharging switching device, method, as well as a two-way charging system for electric vehicles. Now, as per the China Intellectual Property database, this patent was approved on November 30, 2021.
However, the Huawei two-way charging system patent for electric vehicles was published with announcement number CN112638700B in China. At present, two-way charging technology has been more and more widely used in the field of new electric vehicles.
The electric vehicles launching with the support of two-way charging can bring many conveniences to users. In the new upcoming electric vehicles, the power tools and provide users with home appliances, power supplies, etc.
Accoriding to the patent summary, the patent mainly relates to a charging and discharging switching device, a method, and a two-way charging system. The charging and discharging switching device mainly includes:
- A first switch, a second switch, a switching power supply, and a control unit.
- The two ends of the first switch are used to connect the power supply device, the load device.
- The first end of the second switch and the switching power supply, and the second end of the second switch is used to connect the new energy vehicle.
