Video processor runs two independent high-resolution automotive panels

August 31, 2016 // By Graham Prophet
Providing full HD display capability and simultaneous display on two panels, Toshiba Electronics Europe has expanded its line-up of video processors for high-resolution automotive displays with the TC90175XBG, for the larger, higher resolution driver support information displays that are increasingly used in vehicles for applications other than navigation.

The processor is pin-compatible with the previous TC90195XBG, which supports the composition of two pictures in a single display. The TC90175XBG has a reduced frame memory and targets applications that do not require two-picture composition. The latest processor supports Full HD (1920 x 1080 resolution) panels, improving on the support for wide VGA (800 x 480) of the company’s earlier products. Picture separation mode and two independent outputs allow the device to simultaneously output two digital video signals to a Full HD panel and a wide XGA panel at output resolutions including 1920 x 1080 (LVDS output) and 1366 x 768 (LVTTL output). A built-in picture improver capability that incorporates a new ‘area adaptive gamma correction circuit improves contrast, realizing contrast levels that surpass those of Toshiba’s earlier products.
