Toshiba Adds Automotive Display Interface Bridge ICs for IVI Systems

June 4, 2020 Tiera Oliver

Toshiba Electronics Europe GmbH has added two new display interface bridge ICs to their product lineup for automotive in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) systems.

Some current systems are not able to support emerging protocols, such as display serial interface (DSI) and embedded DisplayPort (eDP), due to incompatibilities between interface standards. To address this issue, Toshiba developed interface bridge ICs such as their new TC9594XBG and TC9595XBG

The new TC9594XBG and TC9595XBG devices add an automotive capability to the lineup, solving interface incompatibility issues, especially in IVI systems.

The TC9594XBG supports a parallel input (24bit @ 166MHz) and provides a 4-lane x 1 channel MIPI DSI-TX output. The TC9595XBG can accept two input types; 4-lane x 1 channel MIPI DSI or MIPI DPI (24bit @ 154MHz) and outputs VESA DisplayPort 1.1a.

Both devices offer WUXGA (1900 x 1200 @ 24bit) resolution and are housed in a 7mm x 7mm / 0.65mm pitch VFBGA80 package. The TC9594XBG operates from -40ºC to +105ºC while the TC9595XBG covers -40ºC to +85ºC.

Sample shipments of the new TC9594XBG device started in May 2020 and samples for TC9595XBG will follow later this year.
