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.
Tokyo, April 30th. INOVA Semiconductors, creator of APIX standard for real time gigabit links especially in automotive applications, will exhibit latest solutions based on its advanced APIX2 Multichannel SerDes solutions at the Yokohama Automotive Engineering Exposition 2015 in Tokyo, Japan from 20th to 22nd May. With APIX approaching 30 Million APIX nodes implemented in cars on the streets, Inova is continuing to enhance the APIX2 family. The established and growing Ecosystem for APIX provides connectors, cables and test & measurement solutions. The APIX2 Ecoline family reducing component and system cost allows the migration of advanced infotainment into every car. Inova will jointly exhibit at a booth with its Japanese representative Hitachi High-Technologies, presenting active system demonstrations based on its open APIX- and APIX2 technology. They will show 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: two displays connected in "daisy-chain" mode. Here from one source two independent video streams can be send over one cable to a display, and from there extended with another APIX link to a second display. The practical implementation can be a Head unit connecting to a CID and extending to second display for the front passenger or a display for climate control. Another example is a connection from a head unit to a cluster display and extending to a Head up display. This allows advanced system architectures with one all-integrated-head-unit driving up to 4 displays with a minimum on cabling, connectors and cost.
Additionally visitors will find tools and test technology especially for APIX at the booth.
Please come and visit the Hitachi High-Technologies / INOVA booth at Yokohama Automotive Engineering Exposition. Representatives from Inova and Hitachi High-Technologies will be delighted to welcome you to discuss the advantages of the APIX technology.
