Epson Begins Volume Production of Warping Correction controller IC for Head-Up Displays
Epson has begun volume production of Epson’s first controller IC designed specifically for head-up displays -S2D13V40. Epson’s new controller enables rapid head-up display system development by offering the ability to correct the distortion of images streamed from an SoC according to the curvature of a vehicle’s windshield, without external memory. The controller is equipped with display safety functions and supports the building of more reliable display systems. This controller IC satisfies the strict quality requirements of the automotive industry. It is compliant with AEC-Q100*2 and operates at temperatures up to 105℃. Epson plans to produce 100,000 of the new controllers per month.
The Epson S2D13V40 is a warping correction controller IC specific to Head Up Display. It features an internal Surface Correction Engine which fixes visual distortions caused by non-linear display surfaces. It is also able to simultaneously perform other image manipulations such as rotation and scaling. The S2D13V40 is qualified for automotive design including AEC-Q100/IATF16949 certification and comprehensive safety features. The S2D13V40 can be easily inserted into existing system display architectures with minimal modifications required, making it an ideal solution for both existing and future designs.
