The multi-channel surround view monitoring system is designed to transmit four camera streams over extended distances, leveraging the capabilities of Valens Semiconductor's VA7000 chipset family which provides flexibility on a wide range of standardized cables to deliver a high bandwidth, zero latency, and cost-efficient connectivity solution for future automobiles. The four independent video streams are then received by iCatch Technology's CR3 Automotive AI Imaging SoC for image and Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) processing to enable Blind Spot Detection (BSD) and Rear Collision Warning (RCW) features.

Moreover, iCatch Technology will also unveil a wide range of Smart Cabin solutions at Automotive World Tokyo 2024, covering Euro NCAP compliant Driver Monitoring Systems (DMS) and Occupant Monitoring Systems (OMS), along with Camera Monitoring System (CMS). These solutions are designed to revolutionize the automotive industry by enhancing safety, comfort, and the overall driving experience.

Weber Hsu, General Manager of iCatch Technology, expressed enthusiasm for the event, stating, "Our collaboration with Valens Semiconductor on the MIPI A-PHY Automotive SerDes Solution signifies a substantial step forward in reshaping the automotive connectivity landscape. Automotive World Tokyo provides us with a great opportunity to showcase the latest innovations in automotive AI imaging. Our recent acquisition of certifications in the ISO26262 FuSa and ISO21434 Cybersecurity design flow, emphasizes our dedication to penetrate the automotive OEM market, whether through existing SoC or Solution SoC."

Gideon Kedem, Head of Automotive Business at Valens Semiconductor, said: "The superiority of MIPI A-PHY technology continues to attract interest from around the automotive market. A-PHY is the best way to deliver raw sensor data to centralized ECUs, where iCatch's AI algorithms can turn that data into unparalleled perception for ADAS systems. Because of these synergies between our companies, we are strong believers in our long-standing collaboration with iCatch."

iCatch Technology invites all potential customers and business partners to explore our booth, engage with our experts, and experience pioneering innovations that are shaping the future of the automotive industry.
