Valens lunches VA700R series for advanced vehicle sensor connectivity

HOD HASHARON, Israel. January 24, 2024 – Valens Semiconductor (NYSE:VLN) unveiled the VA700R Series, which offers industry bandwidth and link distance for long vehicle sensor connectivity. Valens Semiconductor provides solutions for various industries, including automotive, aerospace, and industrial control systems. the VA700R Series, helps to enable unprecedented surround view systems for long vehicles. Enabling 4Gbps at distances of up to 40 meters/130 feet, while supplying power and bi-directional control over the cable, the VA700R provides the connectivity infrastructure upon which innovative visibility solutions can be designed for truck drivers. It’s solutions are helping to improve the safety and functionality of vehicles.

The VA700R Series – containing the VA7021R Serializer and the VA7004R Deserializer – offers an unprecedented combination of bandwidth and link distances for applications such as surround view and rear-view visibility for medium and long vehicles. The SerDes will support high resolutions, including up to 8MP (4K) cameras operating at 30 frames per second. It is also bit-accurate, making it applicable for ADAS applications. Moreover, can access demonstrations of the VA700R, and we plan to release engineering samples to customers in mid-2024.

Long vehicles have suffered from a lack of visibility due to the complex technical challenge of long-distance connectivity in a rough Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) environment. Valens is uniquely capable of overcoming this challenge. It also provides the best solution for guaranteeing the performance needed for enhanced ADAS systems in long vehicles.

“Valens Semiconductor’s connectivity solutions are high-performance. This doesn’t just refer to the highest bandwidth or the lower error rate. It also encompasses the longest link distance,” said Gideon Kedem, SVP and Head of Automotive Business at Valens Semiconductor. “Our chipsets are the connectivity infrastructure upon which automotive OEMs and Tier 1s can build their future innovations. The VA700R boasts unprecedented resilience and link distance. These innovations will now be accessible to millions of truck drivers worldwide. Moreover, these drivers operate the most dangerous vehicles on the road and often contend with limited visibility.”

Valens is already seeing significant interest in its long-vehicle-focused solutions. At Automotive World Japan, taking place in Tokyo on January 24-26, Valens will display a demonstration of the VA700R chipset. The demonstration will showcase error-free connectivity of 4Gbps over distances of 40 meters/130 feet.
