A joint interoperability testing program between a transmitter made by Sony Semiconductor Solutions and a semiconductor receiver developed by Valens has been called a success.
During the session, the two companies tested high-speed data transmission to demonstrate the key communication features of MIPI A-PHY, which include error correction and retransmission mechanisms.
“As a pioneer in MIPI A-PHY technology, Valens Semiconductor’s primary goal has been to expand and strengthen the MIPI A-PHY ecosystem, and Sony Semiconductor Solutions, a leader in the sensor market, is a great partner to enable this growth,” said Gideon Kedem, senior vice president and head of automotive at Valens Semiconductor.
Kedem continued, “MIPI A-PHY is the most robust and resilient automotive connectivity technology available, and the successful completion of the interoperability testing is a significant achievement for the ecosystem. The addition of more suppliers providing A-PHY-compliant IC products continues the momentum toward widescale market adoption of this standard.”
“Interoperability between multiple vendors’ components is crucial for the success of any standard, and we are happy to reach this important milestone with MIPI A-PHY,” explained Kenji Onishi, general manager of the automotive business department at Sony Semiconductor Solutions. “As market leader, it is highly important for Sony Semiconductor Solutions to introduce cutting-edge technology into our image sensors, and MIPI A-PHY serializer integration will provide significant cost and performance benefits for our automotive customers.”
