The mass production follows intensive testing and demonstration by the company last year
A chipset, consisting of a Telematics Control Unit (TCU), will be mass-produced this year by a vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communication solutions provider called Autotalks. The mass-production will take place in China under a C-V2X program.
Following rigorous testing and evaluation, the chip was found suitable in terms of its performance, thermal resiliency, security and true transmit diversity.
The company’s production-grade C-V2X solution meets all Chinese performance, configuration, throughput and security requirements and is now ready for deployment there as well as in other markets.
Leading the pack
According to research conducted by the IHS Markit, China is expected to lead the global V2X market, with an estimated 629,000 light vehicles to be equipped with C-V2X technology in 2020. The country is expected to stay in the lead up to 2024.
In October 2019, Autotalks successfully showcased its chipset’s performance to the Chinese C-V2X standard and its OSCCA-compliant security.
“We are proud to be part of this pioneering production program to deploy our mature C-V2X solution in the near future on the streets of China,” said Hagai Zyss, CEO of Autotalks. He stressed that “this important win is a clear testimony to the trust that leading OEMs and Tiers put in Autotalks and to our differentiation as a standalone global V2X chipset provider setting the benchmark on performance and security.”
Autotalks will be showcasing its global V2X solution in Mobile World Congress, Barcelona on February 24-27, 2020.
