Toshiba Launches High-Quality Dual-Picture Video Processor For High-Resolution Automotive Display Panels

Processor enables high-quality video for simultaneous dual-screen display on automotive LCD panels

SAN JOSE, Calif., April 11, 2016 — (PRNewswire) — Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc. ( TAEC)*, a committed leader that collaborates with technology companies to create breakthrough designs, today rolled out a new dual-picture video processor for high-resolution automotive displays.  In-vehicle driver support information displays are growing in use, prompting demand for larger panels with higher resolution. Toshiba's new TC90195XBG video processor supports high-resolution widescreen (1920x720 pixels) panels, improving on the support for wide VGA (800x480) provided by the company's existing product1. In addition, the TC90195XBG can also simultaneously output two digital video signals to two panels, instead of just one.

The new Toshiba TC90195XBG video processor supports high-resolution dual-screen display on automotive LCD panels.

"According to IHS Automotive, the annual market for vehicle display systems is expected to reach nearly $19 billion by 20212," said Deepak Mithani, senior director, Mixed Signal Business Unit, System LSI Group at TAEC. "These larger displays will require reliable video processor chips to ensure their ability to reliably display safety, infotainment, and other driver information with high picture quality. Toshiba designed the TC90195XBG to accommodate these needs, including its ability to output images to two in-vehicle displays – another key trend. We will continue expanding our automotive video processor line-up to meet growing demand."

The new video processor features two-picture composition mode and picture-separation mode with internal frame memory. The input stage complies with LVDS3 (OpenLDI), LVTTL4 and analog video signal, and a single image is composed from these signals and transmitted to the primary display. The device can separate the signals and output them independently to two panels, with resolutions of 1280x720 (LVDS output) and 800x480 (LVTTL output).

The TC90195XBG's built-in three-channel picture-improver circuit boosts low-resolution images for display on high-resolution panels. It features dynamic YC gamma, color management, and HVD enhancement. The processor includes a 10-bit AD converter, multi-color decoder to accommodate all major video formats (NTSC, PAL, SECAM), and power-supply voltage of 1.2V / 3.3V.


Samples of the TC90195XBG dual-picture video processor are available now. Mass production is scheduled for June 2016.
