LG Innotek today announced the development of a ‘Second Generation V2X Full Module’ for connected cars and autonomous vehicles, with improved durability and minimized size. The module combines the three varieties of V2X core components, namely the HCI module and Hardware Security Module for controlling the communication protocol and the Application Processor into one product.
LG Innotek today announced it developed what they claim is the world’s first ‘Second Generation V2X Full Module’ geared for the connected cars and autonomous vehicles. In addition to having the wireless communication ability sufficient for commercialization, this device can be equipped into any part of a vehicle thanks to its durability and minimized size, enhanced from the 1st generation models.
The module by LG Innotek is an innovative product which combines the three varieties of V2X core components, namely the HCI module and Hardware Security Module (HSM) for controlling the communication protocol and the Application Processor (AP) into one product.
The Module has a durability that enables it to survive a heat impact with a high temperature of 105C° and operate normally. A proprietary heat-proof design technology has been applied. A harsh summer environment which raises the indoor temperature of a car to 90C° is not a problem for the product.
Also, this product has a size that is one third of a credit card, which means it can be installed just about anywhere inside a car. Its size is truly compact with a width of 40mm, a length of 35mm, and a thickness of 4mm.
It has recorded a sensitivity level of -94dBm as well as a transmission power of 23dBm for a device with a communication speed of 6Mbps. Even when the car is traveling at a high speed of 120km/h, transmitting and receiving are done without interruptions for as far as 1km.
LG Innotek can customize its supply according to the functions desired by finished cars or vehicle parts companies, with products ranging from HCI modules to full modules. It possesses the V2X modules optimized for the main V2X chip set companies Autotalks, NXP Semiconductors, and Qualcomm.
