Toshiba Electronic Devices & Storage Corporation (“Toshiba”) has added “TC9594XBG” and “TC9595XBG,” new interface bridge ICs for automotive In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI) systems, to its lineup of display interface bridge ICs. Sample shipments start this month.
Automotive IVI systems are becoming increasingly sophisticated, and as the number of displays they incorporate grows, so too do panel choices, moving beyond the widely used LVDS display. However, this can present a problem for current systems that do not support the interfaces of new display panels, including DSISM and eDP. The solution is found in interface bridge ICs.
Toshiba brings a wealth of experience to this market segment, gained from developing ICs supporting MIPI® interface for consumer applications. It has now added the following functions to its lineup for automotive applications, a move that solves interface difference problems in automotive systems and supports customers working on system designs.
