Valens’ First HDBaseT Automotive Silicon is Now Available

June 28, 2016

ConCarExpo 2016, Dusseldorf – June 28th, 2016 – Valens, the developer of HDBaseT technology and founder of the HDBaseT Alliance, is unveiling the VA600T – the first silicon to demonstrate the transmission of high-throughput, time-sensitive applications over an HDBaseT Automotive link.  Valens will be demoing the VA600T’s capabilities at the ConCarExpo 2016, in Dusseldorf (June 29-30).

HDBaseT Automotive is the only technology today that enables up to 6Gbs tunneling of audio, video, data, USB and more, with native networking capabilities over a single unshielded twisted-pair (UTP) cable for up to 15m (50ft), targeting the existing 100BASE-T1 comparable channel utilized today in the automotive sector. The VA600T illustrates the clear benefits brought by HDBaseT Automotive, including high-bandwidth, top performance, feature-rich capabilities, and near-zero latency transmission, through a highly robust and EMC-resistant solution.

At ConCarExpo 2016, Valens will showcase the VA600T, including demonstration of 1Gb Ethernet traffic using the VA600T native Ethernet interface, and distribution of high-throughput audio, video and USB, with near-zero latency, over an HDBaseT Automotive link.  Evaluation kits (EVKs) for the VA600T will be available for customer sampling as of Q3 2016, through the company’s website.

“The VA600T is just the first step in corroborating the unique features brought by HDBaseT Automotive, following in the footsteps of its parent technology, HDBaseT.  Since its introduction in 2010, HDBaseT has revolutionized the transmission of high-throughput multimedia content, and the technology is now a digital connectivity standard in the professional audiovisual and consumer electronics markets.  HDBaseT Automotive simplifies system design, lower overall costs, and provides better performance for end users, improving the overall connected driving experience. With the VA600T, the in-vehicle connectivity revolution is about to start.”
