OMNIVISION and Valens Semiconductor have partnered to bring to market a MIPI A-PHY-compliant camera solution for the automotive industry.
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.
Trucks on the road today experience visibility limitations, due in part to the inability for existing connectivity technologies to support the level of data transfer needed to appropriately address challenges within the truck and the required length of the link between the tractor and the trailer.
Valens Semiconductor Ltd (VLN) and Stoneridge Inc (SRI) have partnered to introduce a connectivity solution related to vision and safety systems in tractor trailers.
Since 2020, Valens and Stoneridge have been working on the development of a long-reach connectivity solution to enable the delivery of high quality, zero-latency, error-free video.
In 2021, the IEEE standards association adopted A-PHY in full as one of its own standards, and major automotive companies have been working to integrate it into their next-generation solutions.
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.
