The SC1711 was designed to meet the specific needs of HUDs, with features such as Socionext’s high-performance 2D graphics engine SEERIS, and APIX2 high-speed serial interface supporting data rates of 1Gbps (down) and 187.5Mbps (up). The company optimized the functionality and performance of the SC1711 for medium resolution displays (24bit 1280×480 at 60fps) which are used for HUDs, and integrated these features into a compact 20x20mm package. The package meets the rigorous requirement of dashboard devices used in the harsh temperature environment.
The SC1711 can also detect display system errors for stable output utilizing a signature unit, which monitors the integrity of display outputs, and a watchdog function. When a screen freezes due to a damaged cable, the SC1711 immediately switches the display output to notify the driver. The device integrates all necessary features to meet the high safety standards required for automotive applications.
