I know how much our PATEO teams across different business & technical fields are pushing the envelope, and I also know how crazy our hardware & software teams are working overtime, to hurry up the delivery of the 2019 digital cockpit product. Just now, the PATEO hardware team lighted up the world’s first NXP i.MX8 QuadMax driven digital cockpit with the top-of-the-line configuration of four A53 cores, two A72 cores and 16-shader GPU. When each of our teams becomes unconquerable and indestructible, and is able to toast a success and remedy a failure with utmost strength, the PATEO business will be able to maintain a vigorous growth momentum at all times! Please don’t express concern about my health in your reply (but thanks anyway!). Please cheer for another cutting-edge core technology of PATEO! PATEO teams deserve everyone’s applause! Another ‘world’s first’ has been added into PATEO’s innovation portfolio, signifying the ‘world’s first’ development for the next generation platforms of NXP, Qualcomm, NVIDIA & Intel.”
