Controller ICs correct image distortion on curved windowscreens

Designed for head-up displays, the S2D13V40 is Epson’s controller IC which enables rapid display system development by offering the ability to correct the distortion of images streamed from an SoC according to the curvature of a vehicle’s windscreen, without external memory. Vehicle manufacturers have installed head-up displays that can be read with minimal eye movement to reduce fatigue.

The S2D13V40 controller IC satisfies the strict quality requirements of the automotive industry. It is compliant with AEC-Q1002 and operates at temperatures up to 105 degrees C.

In addition to distortion correction, the controller can flexibly correct images through rotation and scaling. It has 3.3V I/O and 1.8V internal supply and supports up to 800 x 600 (24-bit) resolution. It is supplied in a P-LQFP100-1414-0.50 package which measures 14 x 14 x 1.7mm and which has a 0.5mm pitch.
