Toshiba Corporation’s (TOKYO: 6502) Semiconductor & Storage Products Company today announced the launch of “TC90195XBG,” a new dual picture video processor for high resolution automotive displays. Mass production is scheduled to start in June 2016.
As well as navigation systems, driver support information displays are increasingly used in vehicles, prompting demand for larger panels with higher resolutions. Toshiba’s new video processor supports wide XGA+ (1920×720 resolution) panels, improving on the support for wide VGA (800×480) of the company’s preceding product. It can also simultaneously output two digital video signals, to a wide XGA+ panel and a wide VGA panel; the earlier product output only one signal.
Going forward, Toshiba will continue to expand the line-up of automotive video processing ICs to meet growing demand.
