CEVA and Autotalks Expand Collaboration to Create First 5G-V2X Solution
CEVA, Inc., a leading licensor of wireless connectivity and smart sensing technologies and co-creation solutions, announced that Autotalks, a leader in vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communication solutions, has licensed and deployed the CEVA-XC4500 Communication Processor and CEVA-BX1 Digital Signal Controller in its third generation V2X chipsets, TEKTON3 and SECTON3. This latest collaboration follows on from Autotalks second generation chips, SECTON and CRATON2, which are also powered by CEVA DSPs.
ABI Research forecasts that the number of registered vehicles with V2X will surpass 61 million by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 53 percent from 2023. TEKTON3 and SECTON3 are designed to support all existing and upcoming V2X requirements, with the CEVA DSPs supporting the 5G NR-V2X modem operation of these chips, enabling enhanced V2X capabilities for safety and autonomous driving. TEKTON3 and SECTON3 have already been awarded for series production of a passenger car by a major automotive OEM, set to be available in the market in 2026.
Amos Freund, Autotalks VP R&D, commented, "Autotalks is pleased to expand its collaboration with CEVA and continue to provide the world's best V2X hardware and software with our TEKTON3 and SECTON3 chips. CEVA's DSPs play a crucial role in the ability to concurrently support DSRC and C-V2X technologies, including the latest 5G NR-V2X standard. We are excited to see these chips deployed in passenger vehicles in the coming years, helping protect drivers, two-wheelers and pedestrians."
Guy Keshet, vice president and general manager of the mobile broadband business unit at CEVA, stated: "Autotalks is widely recognized as a pioneer in V2X chipsets, constantly pushing the technology forward to achieve mass market adoption. We are proud to work closely with them to provide our best-in-class DSPs for two generations of their V2X technology. We look forward to safer roads in the future, thanks in part to Autotalks lifesaving V2X solutions."
