Valens Semiconductor collaborates with Intel to boost automotive MIPI A-PHY implementations

Valens Semiconductor announced a collaboration with Intel to develop MIPI A-PHY-compliant automotive technologies for foundry customers, leveraging Valens Semiconductor’s expertise as a leading contributor to MIPI A-PHY technology. The cooperation will provide an additional boost to the growing A-PHY ecosystem by allowing third parties from across the automotive industry to accelerate time to market for A-PHY systems, from Application Specific Integrated Circuits (ASICs) to System on a Chip (SoC) solutions, based on Intel Foundry Services’ (IFS) design and fabrication. 

MIPI A-PHY is quickly emerging as one of the most resilient standards for long-reach connectivity advancing ADAS, AD, IVI and other automotive applications. It majorly simplifies the integration of lidar, radar and cameras for limited and full vehicle autonomy, while also improving connectivity for high-resolution safety and infotainment displays. 

“Our priority at Intel Foundry Services is to invest in disruptive technologies that can help our customers accelerate time to market,” said Nivruti Rai, Vice President, Intel Foundry Services & General Manager, IFS Automotive Solutions Group. “As the most cutting-edge high-speed connectivity technology in the automotive industry, MIPI A-PHY is well positioned for large-scale integration in cars around the world. With our combination of advanced process technology and geographically diverse capacity, we are confident that we will be able to address the strong market interest in MIPI A-PHY solutions.”MIPI APHY is quickly emerging as one of the most resilient standards for long-reach connectivity advancing ADAS, AD, IVI and other automotive applications.
