Intersil’s new TW884x HD 1080p LCD video processor, with analog video decoder, two scalers, and MIPI-CSI2 SoC, is designed to interface with the latest automotive SoCs. Enabling migration from analog to digital camera systems while supporting various video interfaces and LCD panel resolutions up to full HD targets the product for center-stack units, full display rearview mirrors, instrument cluster displays, and entertainment systems.
The TW8844 with MIPI-CSI2 output and TW8845 with BT.656 output exceed the requirements of U.S. FMVSS-111 for preventing backover accidents, displaying live video with graphics overlay in less than 0.5 seconds after vehicle ignition. The processors monitor SoC and camera output to determine if they are frozen or corrupted. If any issue is detected, the SoC is bypassed and the rearview camera video displayed instantly.
The TW8844 and TW8845 can be combined with Renesas' R-Car SoCs, as well as the ISL78302 dual LDO and ISL78322 dual 2 A / 1.7 A and ISL78228 dual 800 mA synchronous buck regulators. Available now in 14 x 20 mm, 156-lead LQFP, TW8844 is priced at $10 each/1,000, and TW8845 at $9.50 each/1,000.
