Automotive display interface bridge ICs target new display types
Two display interface bridge ICs have been added to the Toshiba Electronics Europe product range for automotive in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) systems.
The greater complexity and extended functionality of automotive IVI systems has increased the number of display panels in modern vehicles. IVI systems often include different display interface types (e.g. LVDS). Some systems cannot support emerging protocols, e.g. display serial interface (DSI) and embedded DisplayPort (eDP), due to incompatibilities between interface standards.
The TC9594XBG and TC9595XBG interface bridge ICs have been introduced to meet this conundrum. The TC9594XBG supports a parallel input (24bit at 166MHz) and provides a four-lane x one channel MIPI DSI-TX output. The TC9595XBG can accept two input types; four-lane x one channel MIPI DSI or MIPI DPI (24bit at 154MHz) and outputs VESA DisplayPort 1.1a.
Both devices offer WUXGA (1900 x 1200 at 24bit) resolution and are housed in a 7.0 x 7.0mm VFBGA80 package, with a 0.65mm pitch. The TC9594XBG operates from -40 to +105 degrees C and the TC9595XBG covers -40 to +85 degrees C.
Toshiba is shipping samples of the TC9594XBG now and will ship samples of the TC9595XBG later this year.
