Today, Valens Semiconductor (NYSE:VLN), a leader in high-performance connectivity, and Black Sesame Technologies, a leading intelligent vehicle SoC and solution provider, announced that they have worked together to enable the integration of A-PHY connectivity into the Huashan-2 A1000 autonomous driving computing chip and are in the process of adding A-PHY to the Wudang C1200 intelligent vehicle cross-domain computing platform. Leveraging the VA7000 MIPI A-PHY compliant chipsets by Valens, Black Sesame Technologies will offer and support the A-PHY connectivity standard for its automotive OEM and Tier1 customers.

The Huashan-2 A1000 is an automotive-grade SoC for L2/L2+ ADAS solutions, supported by a comprehensive and mature mass-production ecosystem. In mass production, the A1000 is featured in vehicles from China's foremost automakers, including FAW Group, Dongfeng Motor Corporation, Geely Holding Group and JAC Group. The Wudang C1200 Series offers high MCU integrated computing power, allowing customers to integrate a broader array of intelligent functions into a single vehicle. With the Valens VA7000 chipsets, Black Sesame Technologies can add support for increased bandwidth and enhanced safety with unprecedented EMC immunity, as well as low-cost system design.

MIPI A-PHY is the first automotive industry standard developed for in-vehicle high-speed sensor connectivity. Since its release, it has attracted a growing ecosystem of companies designing products based on the technology. Valens Semiconductor, a key contributor to the standard, was the first on the market to offer A-PHY-compliant chipsets with its VA7000 chipsets.

"We are delighted to enable Black Sesame Technologies to capitalize on the benefits of MIPI A-PHY connectivity in their cornerstone Huashan Series A1000 and Wudang C1200 Series platforms," Gideon Kedem, SVP and Head of Automotive Business at Valens Semiconductor, "This collaboration demonstrates the growing adoption of A-PHY as the standard for in-vehicle high-speed video transmission, and the value that our VA7000 chipsets bring to the automotive market. China has often been quick to adopt new and cutting-edge technologies, which is why it's not surprising to see the impressive growth of MIPI A-PHY in this important market."

"We decided to move forward with this implementation because of the significant interest for MIPI A-PHY connectivity, both within China and globally," said Weihong Liu, co-founder and President of Black Sesame Technologies. "The superiority of the MIPI A-PHY standard brings a series of benefits to our OEM customers, and I believe that this new support for A-PHY will draw significant interest from around the ecosystem."

The Huashan-2 A1000 autonomous driving computing chip with A-PHY connectivity will be showcased at Black Sesame Technologies' booth (E113) at the Beijing Auto Show from April 25 to May 5.
