25 Jan, 2023

FREMONT, Calif. and SUNNYVALE, Calif. and WALLINGFORD, Conn., Jan. 25, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Leopard Imaging Inc. (Leopard Imaging), a global leader in intelligent embedded camera design and manufacturing, is collaborating with Axonne Inc. (Axonne), a Silicon Valley semiconductor startup that specialized in the simplification of Automotive In-Vehicle Network, and Amphenol Corporation (Amphenol) , one of the world’s largest manufacturers of electronic device components and a Fortune 500 company. The three companies will showcase the world’s first multi-gigabit automotive ethernet camera development module at DesignCon 2023 during January 31st – February 2nd at Santa Clara Convention Center, California.

In the joint efforts, Axonne and Leopard Imaging work together on the first IEEE 802.3ch camera modules, and Amphenol provides the Ve-Net Multi-Gig high speed connectors and STP cable assemblies. The demo is powered by Axonne’s Cyton™ PHY and the camera modules designed and manufactured by leopard Imaging. The Amphenol Ve-NET header will be on the camera module and the Ve-NET high-speed multi-gigabit Ethernet cable assembly will connect from the camera delivering uncompressed raw data to a high performance compute platform Imaging Signal Processing (ISP) before displaying the source video onto the transmitted screen.

Compared to incumbent high-speed data transmission technology, Automotive Ethernet is a flexible and secure network, allowing easy reconfigurations to ensure uninterrupted connectivity in a vehicle zonal E/E architecture for major computer systems and ADAS sensors in a vehicle. With the world’s first multi-gigabit automotive ethernet camera development module, Leopard Imaging, Axonne, and Amphenol successfully provide automotive customers with a secure and versatile high-speed in-vehicle network solution to meet the emerging needs of in-vehicle networking technology. Certified with IATF16949 automotive grade quality management system, Leopard Imaging is endeavoring to serve customers with high quality imaging solutions in the automotive industry.
