Automotive Pixel Link (APIX)
Inova Semiconductors is a fabless semiconductor company and developer of the APIX technology. APIX is a serial high speed Gigabit Multichannel link to interconnect displays, cameras and control units over one single cable.
INOVA Semiconductors at embedded World
INOVA Semiconductors showed advantages of its APIX technology at embedded world 2014
INOVA Semiconductors, creator of APIX standard for real time gigabit links especially in automotive applications, will exhibit for the first time the APIX2 receiver with touch control support and HDCP-1.4-crytography for transmitting HD motion pictures at embedded world 2014 which will be held at the Nuremberg fairgrounds of Messe Nürnberg from 25th to 27th February. Furthermore INOVA Semiconductors will present three active system demonstrations based on its proprietary APIX- and APIX2 technology which fit perfect in the strategic focus of the company. They will demonstrate the advantages of Inova´s serial high speed data communication in vehicles for key aspects of infotainment and driver assistance systems including control of displays and cameras.
- demonstration: triple camera: special feature is here the completely independent transmission of three video streams via only one single APIX link. This demonstration is based on image sensors of Inova´s strategic partner Omnivision and Inova products INAP375T and INAP375R.
- demonstration: transmission of video and gesture control data: special feature is the use of an Ethernet channel to transmit gesture (raw data) from display to the control unit. Due to the high bandwidth the APIX Ethernet channel is in use. Advantage: There is no separate gesture controller necessary in the display. This demonstration is based on the INAP375T transmitter board and the Fujitsu Indigo2 receiver board including display (Indigo2 is a display controller with integrated APIX2 interface from Fujitsu) as well as Leapmotion gesture sensors and gesture technology.
- demonstration: display including touch function and transmission of video, touch, and control data via one APIX link: characteristic of this demonstration is the fact that APIX is the only wire link for the control of video, touch, and display. The demonstration is based on the INAP395R receiver board and the ADI Hockenheim transmitter board (Hockenheim is a HDMI-APIX2 bridge chip from ADI) as well as a display including touch controller technology from Inova´s partner Atmel.
Additionally visitors will find tools and test technology especially for the APIX technology at the INOVA booth.
Please come and visit the INOVA booth at embedded world 2014 in Nuremberg. You will find there members of the management, sales people and support engineers, who will be delighted to welcome you to discus the advantages of the APIX technology.
