Graphics controller enables re-configurable dashboards and car navigation
October 21, 2010 // Julien Happich
Fujitsu Semiconductor Europe developed the MB86R11, a single chip aimed at designing automotive display systems for hybrid and re-configurable dashboards as well as car navigation and assistance systems. MB86R11 is a system-on-chip (SoC) that combines ARM's latest Cortex-A9 CPU core with four video inputs, up to 3 display outputs in parallel, and various standard and automotive-specific peripheral interfaces for a multiplicity of applications.
The chip's rendering performance relies on independent 2-D and 3-D graphics engines, enabling graphical content of the display to be changed based on the driving scenario.
The controller features four video inputs each capable of handling an interlaced input of up to 1920x1080 pixels and up to three display outputs, enabling the high-speed image processing of video data I/O from these interfaces. This could be used to develop a 360⁰ wrap-around view system that synthesises and converts a composite image of the surroundings of a vehicle in real time from the images of four cameras mounted on the front, rear, left and right of the vehicle.
A function that automatically corrects the image contrast ensures high visibility at night or when employing the screen's backlight. Samples of the MB86R11 will be available in the fourth quarter of 2010.
