Toshiba has announced the “TC90175XBG,” a new addition to its line-up of video processors for high resolution automotive displays. Sample shipments start today, with mass production scheduled to start in the first half of FY2017. 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.
The new video processor supports Full HD (1920×1080 resolution) panels, improving on the support for wide VGA (800×480) of the company’s earlier products. It can also simultaneously output two digital video signals, to a FullHD panel and a wide XGA panel; earlier products output only one signal.
