SUNNYVALE, Calif. and DETROIT, Oct. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Fujitsu Semiconductor America (FSA) will announce its latest advanced graphics display technology and automotive video-imaging solutions at SAE Convergence 2010 at the Cobo Center in Detroit, October 19-20.
New products include a 2D/3D graphics SoC with an integrated GDC and GPU, a 32-bit MCU with an integrated graphics controller SoC, a 360-degree Wrap-Around Video Imaging Technology, and a CGI tool for the AutoGraFX® software suite. Demonstrations at Convergence will highlight Fujitsu's global leadership as a provider of the industry's most comprehensive and advanced automotive graphics display and control solutions for automotive instrument clusters, dashboards, human-machine interfaces, and other innovative applications.
At booth 817, Fujitsu will demonstrate a 2D/3D Graphics SoC with an integrated GDC and GPU. The new flagship SoC enables sophisticated graphics and effects for instrument cluster and Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS). The SoC's high-performance, integrated design makes it ideal for use with the Fujitsu 360-degree Wrap-Around Video Imaging Technology, which will be demonstrated for the first time as a commercial solution ready for deployment.
The wrap-around technology uses advanced 3D algorithms to synthesize images from four cameras to recreate a seamless, omnidirectional view of a vehicle's surroundings. The Fujitsu 360-degree Wrap-Around Video Imaging Technology eliminates "blind spots" and provides visual assistance when the driver is backing up, turning corners, or merging.
32-bit MCU with Integrated Graphics Controller SoC and CGI Software Tool for AutoGraFX Suite
Fujitsu will also demonstrate a 32-bit MCU with an integrated graphics controller, which provides a single-chip solution for applications that require robust color display and video-input capabilities. Applications include automotive instrument clusters, center consoles using color displays, vehicle camera systems, and industrial controllers with color displays. The new chip is ideal for next-generation automotive systems that need maximum functionality from display and control units, including hybrid and electric cars that require robust functional integration between meters, controls and displays.
Fujitsu will demonstrate a new CGI design application for the company's AutoGraFX suite. This software development toolset enables automotive system designers to design and prototype 2D and 3D graphical human machine interfaces (HMI/GUI) for instrument clusters and infotainment systems on a Microsoft Windows platform (http://www.fujitsu.com/us/news/pr/fma_20100608-3.html). With the addition of the CGI application, AutoGraFX offers automotive system designers an even more robust and complete software design solution to shorten development time for advanced automotive applications.
