As an elite partner for leading automotive SoC vendors, Leopard Imaging will serve as a design house for machine vision, ADAS, and autonomous systems based on A-PHY. The new product by Leopard Imaging will be the first off-the-shelf A-PHY camera module on the market, further simplifying the integration of MIPI A-PHY and Valens VA7000 chipsets into cars.
Valens Semiconductor, a provider of high-speed connectivity solutions, and Leopard Imaging, a specialist in embedded vision systems design and manufacturing, have partnered to design a camera module that will enable automotive OEMs and Tier 1s to significantly reduce time to market for their A-PHY-based systems.
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.
