By News Reporter
Semiconductors can be found in an extraordinarily wide range of devices such as smartphones, smart home appliances and consumer electronics products. In the automotive industry, in-vehicle semiconductors are playing a necessary part in shaping the future of mobility.
Especially, in the approaching era of autonomous vehicles, software will be essential for driving, managing and updating our cars. Self-driving systems, for example, employ object recognition software integrated with front-facing cameras and sensors, direction sensing software and speed recognition software – all of which require semiconductors to function.
The Capabilities of Vehicle Semiconductors
Global players in the chipset industry, such as Qualcomm or Intel, recognize the importance of the automotive semiconductor and are actively vying to lead in this rapidly growing market. Semiconductor designs tailored for automotive applications must possess the capability to operate at high speeds to ensure quick, reliable connection and data transfer between software-defined vehicles, as well as with traffic management systems, cloud networks and services, and multiple functionalities.
In 2017, with an eye towards the future, LG and Qualcomm announced that they would be cooperating to develop an Advanced Driving Assistance System (ADAS) and autonomous driving technology. Along with collaborating on these next-gen solutions, the two companies have been working together on the webOS Auto vehicle infotainment platform and a 5G connected car platform.
Semiconductor Chips for Future Mobility
Automotive semiconductors have a significant impact on various applications, including the diverse areas of vehicle communication, particularly in telematics and Vehicle-to-everything (V2X) systems. Telematics, a combination of telecommunications and informatics, centers on the Telematics Control Unit (TCU), which manages a variety of vehicle software solutions, from in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) systems to the connected car. Utilizing advanced semiconductor chips, telematics can deliver a range of performance benefits, such as enhanced 5G connectivity, better communication data management and security, and greater overall stability.
V2X systems rely on the rapid exchange of large amounts of data between car-to-car, car-to-infrastructure, car-to-grid and car-to-object in the external driving environment. Automotive semiconductors help enable this ultra-fast data exchange, facilitating seamless communication and interaction between vehicles and their surroundings.
Semiconductors also play an important role in enhancing vehicle safety functions. As the use of electronic components and software in cars steadily increases, so too does the risk of hacking and other cybersecurity threats. In response to this, automakers and suppliers are prioritizing the development of secure semiconductors that can protect vehicles and their owners from cyberattacks.
Advanced semiconductor chips not only provide convenience for a vehicle’s occupants, but for automotive software developers as well; affording them the ability to apply a wide range of services and features, and making the whole development process smoother through a comprehensive suite of cloud-based tools.
As a company committed to constant innovation, LG is planning to release a range of safety and convenience-enhancing products, along with related customer experience services. These offerings will facilitate exciting, new collaborations between car manufacturers and vehicle component solutions providers and help bring the era of future mobility significantly closer.

Hello, about 6 months ago my family bought a LG tv, I do not know the exact model or the name of it, but it has just destroyed the other internet connections when it is on, making my normal 50mb download speed go down to something around 2. It isn't just for my pc, it is for the Xbox in the living room too, as it suffers a little less than my computer but is sill a big and noticeable difference. I like to use 5Ghz internet, but 2.4Ghz is better for this, the router is closer to the TV if that is a question, and the internet in all my games just suck too, when the TV is off I have an average of 40ms on Overwatch 2, but when it is on I have near 500-600ms, Valorant is the same thing with average 20ms and when on its near average of 300ms, and I could make a claim about this for every games I've ever played.
If somebody has an answer please reply to this.

Hello, I have LG OLED CX and recently the Youtube app has incorrect geographic data- CH. I am from Slovakia, the TV has never been to Switzerland. Nor physically, nor virtually (VPN). I am getting CH ads, which I dont mind so much, but I am afraid of possible in app geo restrictions.
I already tried everything, even resetting the TV to default. No other TV app is affected.
Anybody please advise.

During Frieze New York From May 17 to 21
SEOUL, May 18, 2023 — LG Electronics (LG) announced today another breakthrough collaboration with
link hidden, please login to view (Ezequiel Pini b. 1985), an award-winning Argentinian designer and digital artist based in Barcelona. Over the last decade, Pini has increasingly explored how 3D tools and software can be used in his artistic practice to create imaginary, dreamlike worlds whose aesthetic is at once modernist, contemporary and, above all, elegant. The collaborative exhibition Among the Sky, which includes six specially commissioned artworks presented on large-scale format LG OLED and Lifestyle Screens, is being launched and exhibited during Frieze New York during a private preview held at The Shed May 15-16, and during the fair from May 17-21. LG OLED Arts’ collaboration with Six N. Five highlights a continuing and concerted effort in bringing together the world of digital art and advanced technology by presenting contemporary art experiences through LG OLED screens to inspire new and changing forms of the platform and broadening the ways viewers can and will experience visual culture. With premium self-lit picture quality and powerful image processing technologies, LG OLED TVs elevate the viewing and user experience in digital art display.
“We believe that LG OLED will break through the limitations of conventional media and open up the possibilities for digital art and artists,” said Kate Oh, vice president of the Brand Communication Division at the LG Home Entertainment Company. “In accordance with our motto, We inspire art, LG OLED will inspire many artists as they advance into new forms of art, transcending the borders of different fields. We could not be more excited in working with the most talented digital native artists – such as Six N. Five who understand this space.”
The series of six newly commissioned works, Among the Sky are inspired by landscape paintings, expressionism and fantasy realms of the surrealist masters but whose practice draws on digital tools of digital artwork to produce animate vignettes that blur the distinction between natural and outer worldly expressions – one physical and the other, digital. Through this unique collaboration with LG OLED and LG Art Lab, each work can be seen and experienced viscerally in the physical world while also being made available across purely large-scale, digital platforms. LG’s state-of-the-art OLED evo TVs accurately reproduce the textures and colors of the work and deliver exceptionally immersive images, offering higher brightness, clarity and detail. It is also an important aspect through such collaborations to pave the way and bridge the gap between Web 2.0 to Web 3.0 user experiences.
“The sky has no boundaries. Its immensity has always represented a sacred journey beyond perceived limits to me. The world as we know and experience has a finite horizon. It is broken when our vision is raised to connect with the sky,” shares Six N. Five. “For some, it proposes the connection to the beyond, to our divine and spiritual essence. We look up there when we ask for things, when we seek an explanation or simply when we decide to “end” the verticality of our bodies to allow us a physical and mental rest, surrounded by nature.”
The six series of works by Six N. Five will be available as NFTs (Non-Fungible Token) via LG Art Lab on May 25 at 12:00 AM EDT and also be exhibited during Frieze New York from May 17-21, 2023 at The Shed 8th Floor, Tisch Skylights located at 545 W 30th Street, New York, NY. The exhibition is co-curated by Ezequiel Pini and Derrick Li, and supported by Triple X.
