What a Show!

We returned to electronica this year after an absence of quite a few years and what a show it was! This is Europe’s biggest electronics industry fair with 14 halls and 2,144 exhibitions where innovation for today and the future is on display and, with over 70,000 visitors, the show was really buzzing.

Socionext @ Electronica 2022


was also a focus on our booth where we demonstrated our expertise within the Automotive sector. We showcased the latest features of our Smart Display Controller series as well as discussing face-to-face our “Solution SoC” approach. Our team of experts held in-depth discussions with visitors on how Socionext’s solutions help with the special requirements of the Automotive market.

We are well-known for developing and providing customized solutions for a range of automotive applications such as ADAS, Central Computing, Sensors and In-vehicle infotainment (IVI) which we have achieved by investing in leading-edge technologies, IP and software.

The system structure of automobiles is changing dramatically from a distributed architecture to a domain/zone architecture with integrated cockpit systems being adopted linking multiple displays such as meters, IVI and head-up displays. It is not just the number of displays that is increasing, but also the size and resolution of the panels. The various applications in the cockpit also have different requirements.

Our live demonstrations, which we have outlined below, proved to be very popular and visitors were able to see in real-time the capabilities of our smart display controllers.
