STMicroelectronics I/O Hub aims at automotive infotainment

STMicroelectronics has recently unveiled details of its I/O Hub (IOH) specifically designed to work with the Intel Atom processor E6xx series in automotive In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI) systems.

Called ConneXt, the device connects to the Intel Atom processor E6xx series (formerly codenamed Tunnel Creek) using the industry-standard PCI Express (PCIe) interconnection technology and will enable richer experiences for the driver and passengers.

For example, a typical next-generation system will simultaneously provide the driver with applications such as 3D navigation and hands-free cell phone use, while the passengers are using the Internet or playing games on different, multiple displays.
