Socionext has disclosed that it is the first licensee for Inova Semiconductors’ latest APIX3 technology, the latest generation of Inova’s APIX SerDes (Serializer/Deserializer) technology for in-vehicle video and data communications.
the uncompressed, real-time transmission of multiple video channels over a single cable connection. This enables modern domain architectures for Infotainment and camera-radar-based ADAS systems, as well as data communication between multiple head unit domains. In order to support the Automotive Safety Integrity Level (ASIL)-requirements for safe data transmission in upcoming autonomously driven cars, APIX3 is not only designed as a true Automotive product with built-in extended test coverage, but it also provides advanced diagnosis feature such as a permanent surveillance of the entire link. This way cable degradation by mechanical damage, ageing or other influences can be detected early and, to a certain extent, even be compensated.
