Move forward with next generation vehicles

Connected cars are now data centers on wheels. Captured by numerous in-vehicle applications, massive amount of data not only provides advanced and personalized infotainment but also ensures safer driving experiences. With evolving vehicle architecture and increasing technological complexity, automobile OEMs and Tier 1s will require high-performance, high-capacity, high-endurance and reliable storage.

Exascend offers industry-leading automotive-grade storage solutions to address the challenges including big data, extreme temperatures, power fail, environmental influences and cyberthreats. Our porfolios support many automotive applications such as advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) systems, black box recorder, vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communications and more. By providing fully customizable solid-state drives (SSDs) and memory cards, we help automakers collect valuable data and accelerate development of next generation intelligent and autonomous cars.

Application in Focus

ADAS and Data Logging

Advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) are central to the future of autonomous driving (AD). ADAS generate extreme amounts of data through their numerous sensors, LiDAR and cameras, leading to increasing demands for faster read/write speed and larger storage capacities. Watch the video to see Exascend-Marvell partnership on the industry’s first automotive Ethernet-based storage for NVIDIA Orin ADAS application.
