New graphics controller for video control
Published: 20 March 2012 - Michelle Winny
A new graphics controller for automotive display systems has been developed by Fujitsu Semiconductor Europe (FSEU). The MB88F334 'Indigo2' integrates an APIX 2 interface for automotive applications such as instrument clusters, central display and entertainment systems and next-generation head-up displays. A high level of throughput is designed into the device for copy-protected image and control data. The serial APIX2 interface from Inova Semiconductors is capable of shuttling image and control data between control unit and display at 3Gb/s. This new standard in image and peripheral data throughput meets the requirements of the very latest in-vehicle display applications, especially where improved performance is needed while keeping implementation costs low. Other features include an option for transmitting video data using HDCP (High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection) encryption in order to protect copyright, plus Ethernet communication via APIX.
