ON Semiconductor’s New Video Signal Processor ICs Reduce Power Consumption and Enhance Picture Quality for Small LCD Panels

ON Semiconductor (Nasdaq: ONNN), driving innovation in energy efficiency, has released two new highly integrated image signal processor ICs ideal for use in applications such as vehicle reversing cameras, in-vehicle navigation systems and various consumer video monitoring security systems where small LCD screens are utilized. The LC749000PT for automotive applications and the LC749000AT for consumer products support important end application energy savings and utilize advanced signal technology to improve the picture quality of digitally compressed images.

Capable of supporting installations with screen resolutions up to Wide Video Graphics Array (WVGA), the LC749000PT and LC749000AT integrate an analog to digital converter (ADC) which receives direct analog picture signal inputs from a camera. The built-in picture decoding circuit is able to decode analog picture signals in both NTSC and PAL formats. The size of the decoded picture signal is then adjusted according to the resolution of the connected LCD panel by a de-interlacer / scaler to enhance the picture quality. The 24bit RGB output or 18bit RGB output with dithering function is then transferred to the application LCD panel by a built-in programmable timing controller.

ON Semiconductor’s new image signal processor ICs incorporate features designed to optimize the displayed image. These include a scaler, which scales video output to the correct display resolution automatically, and a calibration function, which makes rough gradients smooth. Meanwhile, a built-in dynamic gamma feature helps to improve low light visibility and display contrast in video and camera applications used in variable light conditions. Programmable gamma allows fast, easy and convenient calibration of LCD panels.

Both new devices feature a built-in onscreen display (OSD) function which allows text characters to be superimposed on the picture data. These devices also have a built-in OSD switch that achieves more advanced graphical overlays by employing an additional graphics IC. Meanwhile, pulse width modulation (PWM) supports adaptive LED backlight control functionality that can help yield valuable application power savings of approximately 35 percent. The LC749000PT and LC749000AT are controlled by an external microcontroller via an I2C or serial peripheral interface (SPI). Hardware-driven picture processing minimizes the burden on the software of the microcontroller and in vehicle camera applications. External fast EEPROM booting ensures that the LCD panel is operational immediately after the vehicle engine is switched on – an important feature for rear back-up cameras and many other non-automotive applications.

“Vehicle reversing cameras and many other small screen LCD applications – for both automotive and non-automotive electronics – are becoming increasingly popular,” said Hideya Ohashi, general manager of ON Semiconductor’s SANYO product division. ”With this demand comes increasingly stringent performance requirements regarding image clarity in order to maximize the application benefits, including safety. In addition, there is the challenge of reducing power consumption, especially in automotive systems to minimize the power burden on the battery. ON Semiconductor’s new image signal processor ICs meet both sets of demands and are supporting the faster adoption of this important area of technology.”

Packaging and Pricing

The LC749000PT and LC749000AT are offered in a lead-free and halogen-free TQFP 120-pin package and budgetary priced at $8.00 USD per unit in quantities of 1,000 units.

DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.

What that means is everything that is built in applications and connected applications is done through APIs," explained Roberto Medrano, Executive Vice President at Akana, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 16th Cloud Expo, held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City.
Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically. Containers provide the right abstraction for microservices and many cloud platforms have integrated them into deployment pipelines. DevOps and Containers together help companies to achieve their business goals faster and more effectively. In his session at DevOps Summit, Ruslan Synytsky, CEO and Co-founder of Jelastic, reviewed the current landscape of...
