Evaluation kit designed to aid commercial introduction of C-V2X
Cohda’s MK6C evaluation kit features the Qualcomm 9150 C-V2X platform and offers C-V2X software to enable direct communications in support of V2V, V2I, and V2P applications.
Cohda Wireless announced a hardware solution for use in cellular V2X (C-V2X) applications. Cohda's MK6C evaluation kit is available now, and the company believes it will accelerate the commercial introduction of C-V2X technology around the world.
Cohda's Chief Engineer Fabien Cure said that the company has introduced the MK6C on the back of increasing demand for a dedicated C-V2X hardware solution and that this development will be of particular interest to OEMs and the Chinese CAV market in general. Cohda is participating in interoperability tests in China, where its software is supportive of Chinese standards.
"We are seeing more and more tests and trials of C-V2X technology in the U.S., Europe, and China amongst other places, and we are delighted to be offering what we believe is the most comprehensive solution of its kind on the market," explained Cure.
"Whilst our solutions have always been agnostic, we realized there was a demand for a dedicated C-V2X solution from proponents of cellular technology, and being able to deliver on this demand further strengthens our position in the market, especially with OEMs," said Cure.
Cohda's MK6C solution features the Qualcomm 9150 C-V2X platform from Qualcomm Technologies, a subsidiary of Qualcomm, and offers high-quality and compatible C-V2X software to enable direct communications in support of vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V), vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) and vehicle-to-pedestrian (V2P) applications.
Cohda is set to embark on C-V2X trials involving the MK6C and is actively promoting it for evaluation of the Cohda solution for a C-V2X ecosystem.
The MK6C evaluation kit comes with a 5G expansion-ready extension connector and can accommodate Bluetooth, WiFi, Ethernet, and CAN.
