An ICV chip association 

Meanwhile, Banma has established an ICV chip association with five chipmakers, Qualcomm, Media Tek, Intel, NXP, and Texas Instruments to co-build a software-hardware-integrated technological foundation with Banma Smart Mobility OS (Operating System) as the core, which will supply a lower-priced, optimized and efficient ICV platform according to Banma.      

Banma’s three cooperation approaches suggest that it is prepared for its all-around openness. Besides, the collaboration with chipmakers can integrate Banma’s system closely with hardware to help create an exclusive ecosphere. Banma also said it, as a third-party platform, will be committed to developing China’s independent OS and surpassing Android in in-vehicle system.
