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.
