Valens Semiconductor, a provider of high-performance connectivity, and Black Sesame Technologies, a vehicle SoC and solution provider, will together enable the integration of A-PHY connectivity into the Huashan-2 A1000 autonomous driving computing chip. The companies confirmed that they are already working to add 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, itself, 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 a range of Chinese 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 also add support for increased bandwidth and enhanced safety with unprecedented EMC immunity, as well as low-cost system design.
