S2D13P04 interface IC

Seiko Epson Corp. is shipping samples of the S2D13P04 multi-camera analog interface IC for automotive applications. The new IC can combine images from multiple sides of the vehicle, helping to eliminate blind spots and enabling a higher level of driving safety.

Equipped with four NTSC/PAL decoders, the S2D13P04 can be connected to up to four analog cameras and concurrently decode the four video channels. Images from each camera are synchronized to output a digital signal with a stable frame rate to reduce the loads of imaging processing LSI. Also, incorporating four decoders lowers system costs by reducing the total number of necessary system components.

The S2D13P04 features single-channel digital output, four video output modes and are 8bit YUV422 and ITU-R BT.656 compatible. The device also delivers a sequence that automatically cycles through video; resizes all four channels to QVGA to output a single composite image; and resizes video inputs to half-size VGA and outputs alternating single composite images.

The device provides stable frame rate output of 720 x 480i 30fps (interlaced NTSC) and 640 x 480p 30fps (progressive NTSC). The S2D13P04 also handles composite images, distortion correction an interlaced/progressive conversion. Interface IC includes I? and SPI and had guaranteed operating temperature range of -40 to +85C (Ta). Operating voltages are IO: 3.3 0.3V; Internal: 1.8 0.15V; and analog: 3.3 0.3V.

The comes in 10mm x 10mm x 1.2mm, 0.8mm pitch PFBGA10UX121 package while the S2D13P04F comes in 14mm x 14mm x 1.7mm, 0.5mm pitch QFP15-100 pin.
