Tokyo, JapanFujitsu Ltd. has developed an LSI chip for in-car automotive systems, such as navigation and digital dashboards.
Fabricated using 90-nm CMOS process technology, the MB86R01 integrates various functions on a single chip, such as the ARM926EJ-S CPU core from ARM Ltd., 2D and 3D graphic capabilities, in-car networking features, and support for various media interfaces.
The ARM926EJ-S CPU core from ARM is suitable for multimedia applications, and can also be used for in-car automotive systems. The chip includes an embedded graphic-display controller from Fujitsu that can drive two displays simultaneously and capture two streams of video. In addition to enabling smooth and high-resolution 2D and 3D video and graphics, the embedded graphics controller makes it easier to construct rear-seat entertainment systems.
The MB86R01 will enable low-cost, compact, in-car systems that feature high-resolution graphics, while continuing to leverage existing software resources.
It also provides program protection support. The MB86R01 can process encrypted program codes to help prevent unauthorized changes or access to the in-car system.
Pricing: Approximately $25 each.
