Valens Semiconductor $VLN stock has formed a classic turnaround pattern with Resurrection CrossWhen the 50 day moving average crosses above the 200 day moving average, it is called a Resurrection Cross. Conversely, when the 50 day moving average crosses below the 200 day mov... as of January 2, 2023. $VLN stock is in a technical strong uptrend. The turnaround in $VLN stock is likely the result of Valens Semiconductor VA7000 A-PHY-compliant chipsets passing JASPAR’s rigorous testing for Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC), marking an important milestone for the integration of these chipsets into safety-critical Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems (ADAS).
Valens Semiconductor: JASPAR validates MIPI A-PHY specification
The MIPI A-PHY specification has been officially validated for its network of Japanese OEMs and Tier 1s, including Toyota, Nissan, Honda, Mazda, and DENSO, according to Valens Semiconductor’s announcement on December 5, 2022. This happened after the Valens Semiconductor VA7000 A-PHY-compliant chipsets passed JASPAR’s exacting electro-magnetic compatibility testing, marking a significant step in the integration of these chipsets into safety-critical advanced driver-assistance systems.
JASPAR was founded in 2004 to aid in the widespread adoption of new automotive-related technologies in Japan. Through standardization and sharing of complex electronic automotive software and networks, the organization aids in improving development efficiency and ensuring reliability. It accomplishes this by offering standard specifications that the nation’s auto OEMs and their Tier 1 suppliers may use as a guide.
On the Valens VA7031 serializer and VA7044 deserializer chipsets, JASPAR performed extensive EMC tests for induction noise, TEM cell, antenna irradiation, BCI, antenna irradiation radar band, wireless device, conductive noise, and radiation noise. JASPAR Next-Generation High-Speed LAN Evaluation Standards Version 3 were followed in conducting the tests. Version 1 of JASPAR’s recommended multi-gigabit electric circuit specification, also known as A-PHY, has been released.
“As car companies integrate next-generation ADAS and autonomous systems with sensors requiring ever-higher bandwidth, EMC is becoming increasingly important,” said Hideki Goto, Chairperson of the Next Generation High-Speed Network Working Group at JASPAR and Group Manager at Toyota Motor Corporation. “Our EMC testing has shown that MIPI A-PHY is one of the most resilient technologies for electromagnetic interference.”
“At Valens Semiconductor, we take pride in our unique offering of ultra-high bandwidth long reach connectivity alongside an unprecedented EMC performance,” said Gideon Kedem, SVP and Head of Automotive at Valens Semiconductor. “JASPAR’s recommendation is a seal of approval for our VA7000 chipsets as well as for the MIPI A-PHY standard as a whole. The successful testing will give automotive OEMs – not just in Japan but around the world – even more confidence in using our technology to protect vulnerable, safety-critical links. While other solutions cannot meet the industry’s growing bandwidth requirements without compromising on EMC resilience, only A-PHY will allow OEMs to safely enhance their ADAS architecture.”
Valens Semiconductor price target lowered at Citi
On November 16, 2022, Citi analyst Atif Malik maintained a Buy rating on the shares of Valens Semiconductor while lowering the price target from $8 to $7. The analyst is still optimistic about Valens’ potential for future auto growth given its position as a pioneer in digital connectivity standards-setting.
