Driver support information displays are increasingly used in vehicles, for applications other than navigation, prompting demand for larger, higher resolution panels. To address this need, Toshiba Corporation has launched TC90175XBG, a new addition to its line-up of video processors for high resolution automotive displays.

Toshiba’s new processor TC90175XBG has a pin layout compatible with the already launched TC90195XBG, which supports composition of two pictures in a single display. TC90175XBG has a reduced frame memory and targets applications that do not require two-picture composition. Users can select the ICs according to desired application.

The new video processor supports Full HD (1920 x 1080) panels, improving on the support for wide VGA (800 x 480) of the company’s earlier products. It can also simultaneously output two digital video signals, to a Full HD panel and a wide XGA panel; earlier products output only one signal.

Sample shipments have already begun, with mass production scheduled to start in the first half of FY2017.
