Auto Industry Gets First Full HD LCD Video Processor

Intersil’s TW8844 LCD video processor interfaces with the latest generation of automotive SoCs and is deemed to be the first high-definition (HD) 1080p LCD video processor with analog video decoder, two scalers, and MIPI-CSI2 SoC interface. The device provides the reliability automakers require to ensure their rearview camera systems are compliant with the U.S. Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS-111) for preventing injury or death caused by back-over accidents. It also enables the migration from analog to digital camera systems, and supports a variety of video interfaces and LCD panel resolutions up to full HD 1920 x 1080. The TW8844 LCD video processor is viable for center stack/head units, full display rearview mirrors, instrument cluster displays, and dual headrest rear-seat entertainment systems.
