Valens Semiconductor and Leopard Imaging are jointly developing a camera module that should enable automotive OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers to significantly reduce time-to-market for their A-PHY-based systems.

Since its release by the MIPI Alliance, the A-PHY standard, which was also adopted by the IEEE in 2021, has gained great momentum in the automotive industry. Today, there are a large number of automotive OEMs, Tier 1 and Tier 2 companies evaluating Valens Semiconductor's A-PHY compatible VA7000 chipsets for possible integration into their Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems (ADAS) platforms.

Effective immediately, Leopard Imaging, a manufacturer of embedded vision systems for design and production, will offer services in the area of machine vision, ADAS and autonomous systems based on A-PHY. Leopard Imaging's new product is the first off-the-shelf A-PHY camera module available on the market, further simplifying the integration of MIPI A-PHY and Valens VA7000 chipsets in cars.

The camera module contains an advanced automotive image sensor. It is also offered in combination with an A-PHY deserialiser board, which is connected to a standard processor-based computing unit. Leopard Imaging plans to add more sensors and drivers to support other processors that will use Valens' VA7000 chipsets, depending on market requirements.
