Who makes the virtual instrument cluster of the Tesla Model S?
Also, If you know who makes the central console of the Model 3.
I believe it is Nvidia Tegra
NVidia Tegra is the graphic processor used to power this Tesla UI. BTW the one in the pic is the dash screen of a pre-AP Tesla.
I could tell you, but then I would have to .....
Nvidia tegra is not only a gpu. It is an ARM based SOC, (system on a chip). In late September last year there were several news reports about unnamed sources saying that Intel would be used for the "infotainment" functions in future Tesla updates.
Hey that's a pretty neat display for the driver dash (OP's link to pic). Are we able to customize the driver's display (smaller screen) or is that a hard coded look based on region? I'm not looking to hack the Linux OS or anything like that but if this is a hidden menu thing I'm all in.
I said in my post above it's how the pre-AP screen looks like.
Yep, that looks just like the one in my car... except I've usually got a lot more yellow/orange showing. :-)
The Tesla Instrument Cluster and MCU on the Model S and X are Tesla's design. They use various parts, such as the Nvidia processor, and LG displays (at one time), but the modules are not sourced from some other vendor, as is done at many other companies. They are assembled at the Fremont factory (not on the factory tour), and the PCBs have Tesla's copyright. More undocumented info at: https://teslatap.com/undocumented/
I was told that the display noted above was from 2015 and that current models could not get it.
I appreciate your responses very helpful Thank You
The Instrument Cluster actual display is an out sourced screen by LG display. See the details here: https://www.reeldealev.com/shop/tesla-instrument-cluster
@uscgreel, thanks for the link. Somebody here just maybe in the market for a new screen.
Indeed! I'll be ordering one up in case they become scarce later. My display is not currently leaking but I am getting quite close to end of warranty. I bet $289 beats the pants off the out of warranty cost through Tesla.
