To project HD color images to the windscreen, the ISL78365 is pulsing four high-power laser sources with up to 750 mA, almost twice as high as competing solutions. The high current and fast switching speed of the new Intersil IC enable head-up displays (HUDs) with high resolution, color intensity and, certainly the most important of all, high frame rate.
Laser HUDs are displaying critical information – navigation, speed, speed limits, and warning messages directly into the driver’s field of sight. The new generation of augmented reality laser HUDs boasts almost no latency and a wide field of sight. In comparison with the current generation, they offer more real-time information – for instance, they overlay turning lane and distance, virtually painting directional arrows on the road ahead and thus facilitates navigation.
