Automotive Pixel Link (APIX)
Inova Semiconductors is a fabless semiconductor company and developer of the APIX technology. APIX is a serial high speed Gigabit Multichannel link to interconnect displays, cameras and control units over one single cable.
APIX2 Diagnostics and System Integration Workshop
Inova and eco-system partners Keysight, Leoni, MD Electronics, Rosenberger, Socionext, Tektronix and Telemotive to provide first-hand, end-to-end knowledge for robust RF design and optimal APIX link performance
- intended for automotive OEMs and tier-1 suppliers -
APIX, the serial pixel link technology, was developed for the automotive market. By all accounts, the automotive sector is a challenging market. Our semiconductor products fulfill and even exceed automotive quality standards, but this achievement alone does not guarantee a functional system, capable of meeting our customer's expectations. Many parameters influence the performance, robustness and continuous stability of a Gigabit serial link. Careful selection of components, as well as dedicated design of the high-speed transmission lines on the board are as important as the selection of appropriate physical layer components, such as connectors, cables andties. Understanding and predicting the effects of environmental stress and aging are key for ensuring the longevity of the cable harness and the functionality of the APIX link itself. By leveraging the inbuilt diagnostic features of APIX it is possible to continuously monitor the quality of the link during operation and throughout the life time of the device. Simulation of criticalsectors can prevent multiple hardware redesigns.
Together with a proper understanding of jitter, RF transmission mechanisms and the impact of electromagnetic interference, the right tools and test equipment helps to validate, confirm and debug the robustness of the system design. Therefore, these tools and test equipment are key to ensuring compliance with the APIX standard.
Inova is very pleased to announce our forthcoming technical workshop, which will bring together the expert knowledge of Inova and our dedicated eco-system partners Keysight, Leoni, MD Electronics, Rosenberger, SocioNext, Tektronix and Telemotive. Together we will address the APIX2 Gigabit Serial Link design from end-to-end.
This workshop is intended for automotive OEMs and automotive tier-1 suppliers. It will train and increase understanding for engineers involved with APIX2 technology, RF system design aspects. An important topic will be the key requirements for optimal system integrity, performance and longevity.
