Automotive Display Controllers

Toshiba's automotive display controllers are designed to provide the capability to display instrument clusters, navigation systems and other in-vehicle applications. These controllers integrate a CPU(s), a graphics engine(s) and a variety of interfaces on one single chip.
Toshiba is also developing automotive display controllers with a stepper motor controller that can control analog meters.

  • Display controllers available for low-end to high-end applications
  • Integrated ARM® Cortex® and TX49 RISC CPU
  • 24-bit color depth plus 8-bit alpha blending
  • Powerful 2D/3D graphics engine
  • Controllers with an embedded DRAM eliminate the need for external graphics memory
  • Distortion correction for head-up display
  • Camera/video input with scaler

This figure provides an overview of the Toshiba's automotive display controllers.
