Driving 4K High-Resolution Embedded Displays in New Applications with MIPI DSI and VESA DSC (ARM & Synopsys)
Abstract: The drive for high resolution embedded displays is increasing in applications such as mobile, automotive and augmented/virtual reality (AR/VR). Automotive infotainment and display-based advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) are more sophisticated and require high-resolution displays to mimic high-end mobile-quality user experience. For AR/VR, high frame rates and multiple display architectures are deployed to meet the unique characteristics of these applications such as avoiding motion sickness and eye-glass form factor. Due to increase in display quality and resolution, it is critical for designers to access solutions with more efficient processors and interfaces that support high-performance, low data-transmission bandwidth and low-power consumption. This presentation describes a display solution, co-developed by Synopsys and ARM, that improves visual quality and reduces overall SoC power consumption while meeting the requirements of 4K high-resolution embedded displays in new applications beyond mobile.
