Delphi Automotive announced it has made a strategic investment in an Israel-based leader in signal processing capability – a key enabler for the expanding connectivity and computing needs in vehicles.
“Demand for increased connectivity, active safety and greater vehicle automation requires best-in-class signal and power distribution capabilities along with a robust data management strategy,” said Kevin Clark, Delphi president and chief executive officer. “Delphi’s vision is to enable the ‘brain’ and ‘nerve center’ of the vehicle through our leadership in computing and electrical architecture. This partnership strengthens our capability in this space.”
Valens is the developer of HDBaseT, the global standard for transmission of ultra-high definition video, audio, Ethernet and controls data. Valens introduced its HDBaseT Automotive technology to address the challenges in the increasing amount of bandwidth and wiring necessary required for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).
Delphi and Valens will be working closely together to advance solutions for in-vehicle connectivity based on HDBaseT Automotive and Delphi’s technologies. To further support the commercial partnership, Delphi made a minority investment in Valens.
