Due to the growing complexity and extended functionality of automotive IVI systems, the number of display panels incorporated into modern vehicles has increased significantly, with IVI systems often including several different display interface types. As a result, some current systems cannot support emerging protocols - such as display serial interface (DSI) and embedded DisplayPort (eDP), due to incompatibilities between interface standards.
Toshiba’s new TC9594XBG and TC9595XBG look to address this issue. The TC9594XBG supports a parallel input (24bit @ 166MHz) and provides a 4-lane x 1 channel MIPI DSI-TX output. The TC9595XBG can accept two input types; 4-lane x 1 channel MIPI® DSI or MIPI DPI (24bit @ 154MHz) and outputs VESA DisplayPort 1.1a.
Both devices offer WUXGA (1900 x 1200 @ 24bit) resolution and are housed in a 7mm x 7mm / 0.65mm pitch VFBGA80 package. The TC9594XBG operates from -40ºC to +105ºC while the TC9595XBG covers -40ºC to +85ºC.
The TC9594XBG and TC9595XBG devices extend the company's automotive capabilities and solve interface incompatibility issues, especially in IVI systems.
