Israeli chip designer Valens Semiconductor has teamed up with Omnivision on an automotive image sensor with a MIPI A-PHY interface. The companies will include Valens’s VA7000 A-PHY-compliant chipsets inside Omnivision’s Automotive Reference Design System (ARDS) camera modules.
Gideon Ben-Zvi is the CEO of Valens Semiconductor, a premier provider of high-speed connectivity solutions for the automotive and audio-video markets. He has more than 30 years of experience as a serial entrepreneur.
The VA6300 from Valens Semiconductor enables symmetrical data transmission in vehicles with high bandwidth. According to the manufacturer, this makes the chip a key component for a simple, cost-effective cabling infrastructure in the car.
Valens Semiconductor has released the VA6003 chip for in-vehicle ethernet connectivity, the company said in a press release on 16 February. The Chipset is uniquely capable of high bandwidth symmetric in-vehicle connectivity over simple, low-cost wiring infrastructure and is already being evaluated by leading automotive customers for integration into their platforms.
Israeli chipmaker Valens has helped shape an auto industry standard that will be used to provide high-speed connectivity links for data-hungry in-vehicle applications.
