Toshiba Electronics Europe has announced a dual picture video processor designed for high resolution automotive displays. The TC90195XBG supports 1920×720 panels at 60fps and 1920×1080 panels at 30fps for navigation, entertainment and driver support systems that are increasingly found in cars.
The TC90195XBG incorporates a built in picture improver circuit to enhance low resolution images for display on high resolution panels. It can also output two digital video signals, to a WXGA+ panel and a WVGA panel simultaneously.
With its built-in frame memory and a line-drawing engine, the TC90195XBG can be used for rear view camera systems as well as supporting infotainment and rear seat entertainment systems.
The processor supports picture composition and picture separation modes with internal frame memory. The input stage complies with LVDS (OpenLDI) and LVTTL; a single image is composed from these two signals and displayed to a WXGA+ panel. Alternatively, it can separate the signals and output them independently to two panels, with 1280×720 (LVDS output) and 800×480 (LVTTL output) resolutions.
Samples of the TC90195XBG dual-picture processor are available now and mass production is scheduled to start in June 2016.
