OMNIVISION | January 06, 2023
Leading global developer of semiconductor solutions, OMNIVISION, signed an MOU with Aviva Links Inc, an automotive connectivity company enabling multi-gigabit links for in-vehicle networks, to develop automotive camera systems based on Automotive SerDes Alliance (ASA) specifications. The new sensors integrate AVIVA's high-speed communication solutions with OMNIVISION's image sensor technology, paving the way for intelligent and autonomous vehicles.
Since OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers founded ASA in 2019, the alliance has gained popularity in the automotive industry and has become the OEM standard in manufacturing. ASA's ecosystem includes automobile manufacturers, Tier 1s, semiconductor suppliers, cable and connection manufacturers, test tool providers, and test houses. These firms are building an ASA ecosystem to standardize and optimize SerDes technology for next-generation software-enabled automobiles.
The Camera systems with high-speed data transfer inside vehicles will be vital for the next wave of intelligent vehicles. A standard-based solution that can provide unparalleled performance will propel the industry forward. The company looks forward to working with OMNIVISION, the leader in automotive imaging solutions to speed up the adoption of ASA technology.
Omnivision stated that as the industry advances from proprietary interfaces to an open standard, it is delighted to launch the first camera-based solution designed using ASA standards making it safe and offers lowest power consumption. In addition, transporting data at multi-gigabit speeds while facilitating interoperability is a missing link in intelligent and autonomous vehicles, and Aviva's ASA-compliant technology solves that challenge for the industry.
The new camera systems are being designed in small form factors to ease integration into automobiles and to reduce manufacturing costs, utilizing the best of both AVIVA and OMNIVISION. In addition, because they use ASA-specified encryption technology, the systems are also highly secure.
At the forefront of technology, OMNIVISION has created and delivered cutting-edge digital imaging, analogue, touch and display solutions for numerous applications in a variety of sectors. OMNIVISION is a well-known global fabless semiconductor company with over 3,000 workers worldwide and over 13 billion devices shipped.
iBASEt | January 11, 2023
iBASEt, a company that simplifies manufacturing and maintenance of complicated products for its clients, recently announced an expansion of its collaboration with the Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC) by becoming a Tier 1 MTC member.
iBASEt will make its Solumina iSeries-powered Digital Operations Suite available to MTC members and researchers of its National Centre for Advanced Manufacturing Technologies. The cloud-native solution will assist UK manufacturers in developing, collaborating, and speeding up the transition to a fully digital operations system strategy.
During an Industrial Transformation Roundtable, this expanded partnership was declared at the MTC in Coventry. The panelists examined how the UK's manufacturing industry can collaborate to advance digitalization, boost productivity, and address sustainability.
"UK manufacturing needs to collaborate to compete. Our expanded partnership with iBASEt provides the digital tools required to bring everything together. We all want to complete the 'Fourth Industrial Revolution' and move to digital, but it's worth remembering the first industrial revolution didn't happen in a day," said Professor Ken Young, Technology Director, MTC. He further stated, "We need to work together to digitise and optimise entire supply chains before UK manufacturing can truly reap the rewards."
iBASEt software simplifies how complex products are developed and maintained. Since 1986, Southern California-based iBASEt has provided digital continuity for manufacturing, quality, maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) operations. The company’s customers of the company include Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Rolls Royce, Pratt & Whitney, and Textron. Its solutions are paperless, digitally integrated solutions that replace disparate production, quality, and MRO applications. iBASEt Digital Operations Suite synchronizes data and processes across business systems for internal and external teams to promote cooperation. From process and inspection to shop floor planning and execution, iBASEt's proven, pre-configured, and out-of-the-box solutions provide real-time visibility and control that accelerates manufacturing performance.
