Valens Semiconductor, a premier provider of high-speed connectivity solutions for the automotive and audio-video markets, has announced that the Japan Automotive Software Platform and Architecture (JASPAR) organization has formally validated the MIPI A-PHY specification for its network of Japanese OEMs and Tier 1s, including Toyota, Nissan, Honda, Mazda, and DENSO.
Connected, shared, autonomous and electrified are the major themes driving the automotive industry today. Enabling cars to make complex decisions requires huge volumes of data to be gathered from sensors positioned outside the vehicle to be processed or displayed inside.
Das autonome Fahren birgt noch viele Herausforderungen. Eine oft übersehene Herausforderung ist die Konnektivität im Fahrzeug. Bandbreite, Verbindungsdistanz und elektromagnetische Widerstandsfähigkeit müssen ausreichen, um kommende Generationen von Fahrzeugarchitekturen zu unterstützen.
Gideon Kedem argues that cameras, radars and LiDAR are all vital to autonomous driving. There has been much debate about sensor technology within the automotive industry and the role that cameras, radars and LiDARs will play in the future of autonomous driving.
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.
