OMNIVISION and Valens Semiconductor Partner to Provide Automotive OEMs with a MIPI A-PHY Compliant Camera Solution for Advanced Driver Assistance Systems Applications

Companies will showcase joint A-PHY solution at AutoSens in Detroit

Santa Clara, California. and Hod Hasharon, IsraelAnd May 9, 2022 /PRNewswire/ – OMNIVISION, a leading global developer of semiconductor solutions, advanced digital imaging, touch and display technology, and Valens Semiconductor (NYSE: VLN), the premier provider of high-speed connectivity solutions for the automotive and audio-video markets, has partnered to deliver a camera solution compatible with MIPI A-PHY for the automotive industry. The companies will include Valens Semiconductor’s VA7000 A-PHY-compatible VA7000 A-PHY chipsets inside OMNIVISION’s Automotive Reference Design System (ARDS) camera modules. The primary camera module will also include the OX08B40 image sensor from OMNIVISION.

Since its launch by the MIPI Alliance in late 2020, A-PHY, the standard for high-speed in-vehicle communication, has gained significant momentum within the industry. In 2021, the IEEE Standards Association fully adopted A-PHY as one of its own standards. Tier 1 and Tier 2 automotive technology suppliers, such as OMNIVISION, are working to certify the next generation solutions standard for Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) applications. Valens Semiconductor is the first company to launch A-PHY compatible chips, having begun to ship samples of its VA7000 family of products to select customers and partners in December 2021.

The collaboration between Valens Semiconductor and OMNIVISION will pave the way for the development of A-PHY-compatible camera systems, allowing for smaller camera designs, lower power consumption, lower camera cost, and interoperability with the broader A-PHY system. Both companies will showcase the A-PHY reference design at AutoSens Detroit (From 10 to 12 May 2022).

“We are pleased to partner with Valens Semiconductor to allow our customers to easily evaluate A-PHY, a new global standard improved for high-speed sensor-to-ECU communication, which we believe will provide a significant business opportunity for our company,” she said. Boyd Fowler, Chief Technology Officer at OMNIVISION. “It is a major step that the auto industry can now operate on the connectivity standard, which was built from the ground up to address specific in-vehicle challenges while delivering significant cost savings for the ecosystem as a whole. We look forward to taking our place in this exciting new development around MIPI. A-PHY.”

He said, “OMNIVISION has always been a pioneer in embracing cutting edge technologies with their sensor solutions, which is why it comes as no surprise that they are moving forward with A-PHY.” Gideon Kedem, Senior Vice President and Head of Automotive Division, Valens Semiconductor. “The A-PHY ecosystem continues to grow, with OEMs, Tier 1s and Tier 2 manufacturers evaluating our VA7000 chipset for high-speed video calling. It became abundantly clear that this would be the leading connectivity solution for ADAS applications in vehicles around the world.” .
