Valens Releases Ultra-High-Speed Automotive Chipset

The VA608A is also the first and only chipset to enable 2.5Gb Ethernet over a single Unshielded Twisted Pair (UTP) wire with near-zero latency.

Valens’ VA608A is its most recent automotive chipset that offers high-speed bandwidth and resilience required for connected and autonomous car applications.

The VA608A chipset provides data transmission speeds of up to 16Gbps and allows manufacturers to increase native PCIe as a long-distance in-vehicle connectivity technology up to 15m/50ft. This allows OEMs and Tier-1s to leverage a variety of existing components sans needing a complete redesign of the vehicle’s architecture.

Valens’ PCIe is intended for many automotive use cases such as telematics, multi-modem smart antennas including 5G, Wi-Fi, WiGig, BT, etc., ECU-to-ECU connectivity and shared storage/black box storage.

“The VA608A is a game-changing chipset technology for the automotive industry,” said Valens’ VP and Head of Automotive Business Unit, Daniel Adler. “Valens continues to lead the way with unprecedented ultra-high-speed, multi-Gigabit in-vehicle connectivity solutions, introducing innovative concepts and approaches for smarter vehicle architectures. From the outset, our goal has been to provide the most resilient solution for connectivity applications while reducing overall system costs, both in terms of infrastructure and software components. The VA608A fulfills that goal.”
