OKI develops automotive LCD controller LSI with video decoder

Tokyo—Oki Electric Industry Co. Ltd. has developed LCD controller LSIs for small and mid-size LCD monitors that include video decoders compatible with the three major video standards and video adjustment functions.

The ML86V8207 was developed for QVGA-VGA small LCD monitors while the ML86V8209 was developed for WVGA-XGA mid-size LCD monitors. The LSIs include the video decoder, scaler, on-screen display (OSD) and LCD controller functions” all in a single chip. The chip includes a video decoder that supports NTSC, PAL, SECAM worldwide video signal standards and complies with component video signal D2.

The LCD controller includes functions for scaling, timing control (T-CON), a line overlay function and I/P converting that enable high quality video on mid and small size LCD monitors without using an external large-capacity memory. With these functions in the LCD controllers, users can connect a system directly to various types of LCD panels.

The ML86V8209 includes an SDRAM interface to enable the picture-in-picture function for digital and analog video signals, and a line overlay function, displaying up to XGA resolution. With XGA, users can display highly sophisticated video on the large screens that will be required for automotive system users. Specific applications include synthesis display of digital videos such as for car navigation systems with analog video for automotive surveillance cameras, and display guidance on backup monitors.

Both LSIs are compliant with ISO/TS16949, offer high reliability, and can be used in a variety of applications such as surveillance monitors used over a wide range of temperature environments, and mid and small-size LCD TVs.

Availability: Samples will be available from February 2008. Volume shipment is expected in October for ML86V8209 and December for ML86V8207.
