The Vista-X90 is the newest addition to Cepton’s Vista-X automotive grade sensor family. It sets a new benchmark for high performance at low power in a compact form factor, and is ideally suited for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous vehicles (AVs). Weighing less than 900 g, the Vista-X90 achieves up to 200 m range at 10% reflectivity with an outstanding angular resolution of 0.13° and state-of-the-art power consumption of <12W. The sensor supports frame rates of up to 40 Hz.

Optimized for ease of vehicle integration, the Vista-X90 has a licensable design architecture powered by Cepton’s patented Micro Motion Technology (MMT®) – a frictionless, mirrorless, rotation-free lidar architecture capable of high resolution and long range 3D imaging, while maximizing the sensor robustness and reliability to meet the stringent requirements of automotive applications.

Powered by Cepton’s next generation ASIC technology, the Vista-X90 is an ISO26262 ASIL-B sensor that supports AUTOSAR and over-the-air (OTA) functionality, with advanced capabilities for factory, extrinsic and dynamic calibration. With a width of 120 mm, depth of 110 mm and a front-facing height of <45 mm, Vista-X90 is compact and embeddable. Its 90° x 25° field of view, combined with its directional, non-rotational design allows seamless vehicle integration - such as in the fascia, behind the windshield or on the roof.

Built with easily available and inexpensive components using a highly manufacturable, modular and scalable architecture, the Vista-X90 is ideally suited for high volume production to bring truly cost-effective lidar solutions to ADAS and AV markets. Cepton has licensed its technology to the world’s largest automotive headlamp Tier 1, Koito, who has non-exclusive rights to manufacture and sell Cepton’s lidar technology for an automotive application, using key modules supplied by Cepton.

“We are excited to disrupt the industry with the Vista-X90, which is the most cost-effective, high-performance lidar in the world for automotive applications,” said Dr. Jun Pei, Cepton’s CEO. “Automotive lidars have historically had either low performance at acceptable cost or claimed high performance while being too expensive for many OEM programs. The Vista-X90 fundamentally changes the game by bridging that divide and delivering the optimal mix of performance, power, reliability and cost. This is an integral part of our plan to make lidar available as an essential safety device in every consumer vehicle in the world.”

The Vista-X90 is targeted for production in 2022 and beyond, and samples can be made available upon request.

To learn more about the Vista-X90 and Cepton’s automotive grade lidar capabilities, join Cepton at the upcoming Automotive Lidar 2020 conference next week, between September 22 – 24, 2020. Please visit our virtual booth page and sign up to hear Cepton’s Senior Director of Business Development, Mitch Hourtienne, discuss the Vista lidars in his talk “Importance of Tier 1 Collaboration for an Automotive ADAS Production Program” on September 23 at 11:15 am EST.

Successful Certification of Kalray’s Smart Storage Adapter19.10.2020 19:00:00 EESTPress release

Kalray (Paris:ALKAL) (Euronext Growth Paris: FR0010722819 – ALKAL), a pioneer in processors for new intelligent systems, today announced that its K200™ Coolidge™ based smart storage adapter solution has been certified for NVM ExpressTM over Fabrics (NVMe-oF) with TCP (NVMe™/TCP) protocol by the NVM Express organization through the University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL), an independent testing provider of standard conformance solutions and multi-vendor interoperability. Data Centers are undergoing a very important revolution with rapidly evolving network architectures and technologies. This is mainly due to the explosion of usages, the surge of data to be processed and the resulting exponential growth of the number of machines to be managed to support this growth. Until now, storage has been one major bottleneck of this expansion. The introduction of flash memory-based SDD (Solid-State Drive) with hyper-fast communication protocols such as NVMe™/TCP, offers a

Octapharma announces FDA approval of updated NUWIQ® Prescribing Information to include immunogenicity data in previously untreated patients19.10.2020 18:29:00 EESTPress release

Octapharma is pleased to announce that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved an updated Prescribing Information (PI) for NUWIQ®, Octapharma’s human cell line-derived recombinant factor VIII (FVIII). NUWIQ ® is approved for the prevention and treatment of bleeding in people with haemophilia A. The updated PI includes immunogenicity data from the NuProtect study in previously untreated patients (PUPs). FVIII inhibitor development is the most serious treatment complication in previously untreated patients (PUPs) with severe haemophilia A. The development of inhibitors against exogenous FVIII can reduce the effectiveness of treatment and negatively impact a patient's long-term joint health and quality of life. Minimising the risk of inhibitor development is therefore a key consideration in treatment decisions for PUPs. The updated NUWIQ® PI includes data from the NuProtect study, which was the largest prospective study of a single FVIII product in true PUPs. Patients rec
