Integrated KD9351 FOT for automotive gigabit connectivity

Extreme technology, billions of euros and rooms that are much cleaner than those in an operating theater. This is how a microchip is manufactured.

Toñi Fernández from the Spanish radio station Cadena Ser has spoken with KDPOF CEO Carlos Pardo about the plans to set up a semiconductor packaging plant in the Madrid area. As follows, please see the translated summary of the Spanish audio. Read more

KDPOF's integrated KD9351 FOT has been nominated for Electronics Industry Awards 2022

KDPOF celebrate their integrated KD9351 FOT being nominated for Electronics Industry Awards 2022. “We are proud to be one of the finalists in the automotive category,” stated Carlos Pardo. “With the KD9351 FOT, we consequently provide efficient optical technology for safe backbone and ADAS sensor links in vehicles. We significantly lower costs by constructing the transimpedance amplifier, photodiode, LED driver, and LED as one single device.” The integrated device provides enhanced efficiency and flexibility, thus paving the way to optical multi-gigabit Ethernet in the vehicle. Until August 25, 2022, readers are called to vote for their favorite electronics products.

KDPOF on RTVE: Interview with Carlos Pardo about Microelectronics Industry in Spain

Spain had approved the Strategic Projects for Economic Recovery and Transformation with an important invest in microchips and technology companies. It is essential because we have in Spain some companies that create technological and electronic components and equipment but depend on Asia for manufacturing since they don’t have the capacity to produce microchips on their own. The project PERTE will invest an important quantity of Euros to help these companies for manufacturing. As Carlos Pardo stated in the interview, it could get an important growth in these small companies and also attract private invest resulting in a general economic growth.

Automotive Ethernet Congress: Automotive Multi-gigabit is Optical

With new challenges like automated driving and electric power trains, In-Vehicle Network (IVN) requirements are quickly evolving. The IVN has to support use cases such as the vehicle data backbone, smart antennas, ADAS cameras/sensors, displays, and data loggers, which demand higher data bandwidth while maintaining the reliability level required by the automotive industry. When considering a standard technology to support the target use cases, it is clear that the requirements are not all met by any existing communication standard, including the optical 10GBASE-SR. It is thus necessary to define a new IVN standard for multi-gigabit optical communications in the automotive environment.
