Fujitsu Microelectronics Collaborates with Inova on Advanced, Cost-Efficient In-Vehicle Graphics Display Technology

New Case Study Details Benefits of APIX® High-Speed Serial Link Interface, Includes Specific System Architecture Configurations

Sunnyvale, CA, February 25, 2010

Fujitsu Microelectronics America, Inc. (FMA), the industry leader in advanced graphics processor technology for automotive display applications, has issued a new case study detailing its collaboration with Inova Semiconductors and tier-one suppliers to develop an advanced, cost-efficient display technology solution for in-vehicle applications.

Entitled “Fujitsu and Inova Help Automakers and Tier-One Suppliers Design and Manufacture High-Performance Graphics Display Systems,” the case study explains the benefits of graphics display controllers for embedded vehicle applications, and describes how Fujitsu Microelectronics integrated Inova Semiconductor’s APIX® high-speed serial interface into its graphics display controllers (GDCs).

The paper details the close working relationships Fujitsu and Inova established with automakers and their suppliers, with the objective of meeting the significant space, cost and performance challenges brought about by the demand for more graphics content in vehicles. Fujitsu currently has three automotive GDCs with integrated APIX: the MB86R02 “Jade-D” SoC (see February 18, 2010 press release;, the MB88F332 “Indigo” and the 32-bit Fujitsu RISC microcontroller MB91F467. These devices simplify wiring, and reduce cost and space requirements by limiting the number of connectors and wiring harnesses needed to transmit video and peripheral data to remote displays throughout the vehicle. Sample system architectures also are presented in the case study, with details on the specific advantages enabled by the APIX link.
