Socionext will showcase their latest technologies at electronica with highlights including Domain Computing, Automotive Display Solutions, In-vehicle Graphics Computing, a Camera Reference Design Kit and Camera Image Processing, as well as the latest HMI Design & Embedded Design Software.
Next Generation Automotive Architecture Domain computing introduces high performance controllers to orchestrate car applications more efficiently, leaving the complex and costly distributed architecture behind. High integrated devices such as Socionextʼs display controllers and graphics computing SoCs offer greater flexibility and efficiency in the development phase and in the field, at the same time reducing system cost.
The next generation of display controllers for remote display applications in the car will be introduced. Three essential components have been integrated to produce a complete safety concept: high speed serial video links up to 12Gbps, window-based signature units and up to two timing controllers for panel connectivity. An intelligent interlocking and coordinated integration of all functions, the SC1701 family offers unparalleled flexibility and cost saving for any in-vehicle display application.
Where there is a need to compute camera data and present it on a display in order to assist the driver, Socionext has a solution with its specialized SoC and software package. Surround view or rear view paired with demanding cluster applications can be realized with the SC1810 series, utilizing integrated vision and graphics processing units. OpenVX and OpenGL interfaces provide flexibility for custom applications.
The ʻSC2000 Smart-Kitʼ is a new camera reference design-kit enabling rapid development of mobile cameras up to 4K@60fps. Powered by Milbeaut technology the reference kit includes recording and/or streaming through UVC and RTP and optimization for action, wearable, flying cameras, IoT and digital still cameras (DSCs). Included in the Kit is an SDK which enables easy code development together with reference camera hardware (4 stacked boards: a sensor board with IMX477, a processor board, IO and debug board) and all documentation, schematics and Gerber files.
