The selection of Autotalks’ chipset for the project followed rigorous testing and evaluation, the chipmaker says. The evaluation procedures covered the radio performance and security as well as thermal resiliency and transmit diversity. Additionally, the fabless chipmaker’s ability to meet the strict schedule was instrumental. 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.
As usual in such cases, Autotalks was not allowed to name the OEM. eeNews Europe Automotive however learned from the Autotalks environment that in any case the order is in the dimension of several million units.
According to research firm IHS Markit, China is expected to lead the global V2X market, with an estimated 629,000 light vehicles produced in the region equipped with C-V2X technology in 2020, and the country is expected to stay in the lead through to 2024.
In October 2019, Autotalks showcased its chipset’s conformance to the Chinese C-V2X standard and its OSCCA-compliant security in the first-ever large-scale interoperability demonstration of multi-brand C-V2X communication. The Chinese version of the C-V2X standard differs through its special-made security layer.
The semiconductor vendor plans to showcase its standalone global V2X solution in Mobile World Congress in Barcelona (Hall 5 Stand 5D81).
