Inova Semiconductors 

Inova Semiconductors is a Munich-based German fabless design house, which has been specialised in the research and development of high-speed communication technology, and successfully applied such technology in major public transport infrastructure projects across the globe such as the Airport Express in Hong Kong, and PATH railway service by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey in the United States.

In 2007, Inova launched APIX (Automotive PIXel link) as a breakthrough product for uncompressed, real-time video and data communication. Its superb electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) makes APIX a proven technology in the automobile industry to fight againt EMI interferences. APIX has been rapidly adopted by numerous global carmaker heavyweights and successful stories counting.

APIX not only fulfills the demands of high-resolution in-car video applications, but also supports transmissions of audio, control, and Ethernet signals all over one single cable, significantly reducing carmakers’ production costs and permitting the greatest degree of flexibility in infotainment system design to allow designers easily improve interactive user experiences. APIX’s bidirectional communications without delay also contributes to driving safety, making APIX a much-loved technology among engineers who develops active safety and advanced driver-assistance systems.

In addition to video and network applications in cars, APIX has also aroused a lot of interest in other market segments, such as security & surveillance, as well as medical applications and digital camera systems.

In 2017, Inova Semiconductors announced the state-of-the-art APIX 3 technology, now supporting data transmission bandwidth up to 12 Gpbs, solving the industry thirst for ever-growing demand for high-resolution videos.

In  addition to video and data communication, Inova also announced a novel LED lighting technology, ISELED, in late 2016. ISELED involutionalized the lighting industry to first implement differential communication signal controlling chip into each RGB LED modules, allowing the module emit dynamic colors without ageing or temperature hinderance. The conecpt also largesly reduces manufactuing costs for LED suppliers and therefore the overal costs for customers, such as automotive OEM, to implement on vehicles.
