The capabilities of Samsung’s Exynos Connect U100 chipset go beyond location tracking. It is also compliant with Car Connectivity Consortium’s Digital Key Release 3.0 standard. This means if the chip is used in your phone — and your car is also on the standard — the handset will be able to communicate a security key to your vehicle to unlock it.
As the chipset uses ultra-wideband technology, it can transfer data over a short distance without using a lot of power. It’s ideal for things like contactless payments. That’s not the only power-saving feature built into it, either. The U100 has a “power-saving mode” designed to draw out the battery life of the devices it is used in as much as possible.
In terms of security features, the U100 boasts a “scrambled timestamp sequence function” which pairs with its hardware encryption engine to deter hacking attempts. Samsung says its ultra-wideband hardware, as well as other short-range wireless tech like Bluetooth, will fall under its new Exynos Connect brand going forward. Of course, it’s also hard to ignore the fact that Samsung’s U100 name for its chipset is very similar to that of Apple’s own ultra-wideband chip, the U1.
