Toshiba’s new release – TC90195XBG video processor supports high-resolution widescreen (1920×720 pixels) panels, improving on the support for wide VGA (800×480) provided by the company’s existing product. Also, the TC90195XBG can simultaneously output two digital video signals to two panels.
The annual market for vehicle display systems is likely to touch $ 19 billion by 2021,” said Deepak Mithani, senior director, Mixed Signal Business Unit, System LSI Group at TAEC.
These larger displays will require reliable video processor chips to ensure their ability to reliably display safety, infotainment, and other driver information with high picture quality.
