MIPI Alliance has selected Valens’ technology as the baseline for the Alliance’s A-PHY physical layer standard targeted for automotive applications.
According to MIPI Alliance, its selection of Valens’ technology followed an in-depth evaluation process, including testing and analysis of several proposed solutions from member companies. Valens’ solution was determined best-suited to address the need for high-speed, in-vehicle video links, and to support the range of bandwidth defined by the A-PHY standard.
The A-PHY standard will define an asymmetric physical layer for the automotive market to provide high-speed links for cameras, displays and sensors, through native CSI-2 and DSI/DSI-2 interfaces, to support autonomous driving and other use cases.
The final specification is expected to be completed by the end of 2019. MIPI A-PHY will be the first high-speed asymmetric standard in the market.
