An automotive technology innovator, indie Semiconductor has introduced a family of new high-performance video converters and retimers to enable in-cabin connectivity applications, including audio and video transport and device interfacing.

These new capabilities expand an innovative lineup of in-cabin products, empowering global Tier 1 system integrators to deliver best-in-class in-vehicle experience to automakers.

Effective interpretation and presentation of high-bandwidth data is essential for multi-screen, multi-zone applications, including in-cabin audio-video entertainment, camera, radar and other sensor-information for parking and safety features, and more. The new family of system-on-chip (SoC) converters support the diverse interfaces these applications necessitate, including DisplayPort, USB, HDMI and LVDS, while the retimer products feature receive equalization to maximize signal quality and transmission distance.

According to S&P Mobility, in-vehicle displays will exceed 140 million units by 2028, representing a greater than $9 billion semiconductor opportunity in that timeframe. As consumer expectations for highly interactive and engaging in-cabin experiences increase, the automotive industry must evolve the bandwidth, quality and responsivity of supported in-vehicle graphics, audio and video.

“The quantity of in-cabin data and information available to drivers and passengers is growing exponentially, with virtually all new cars featuring at least one screen today for infotainment, and many boasting multiple displays used for instrument clusters as well as vehicle safety and control. Consumers are increasingly demanding that audio, video and vehicle information is available as a clear, timely and seamless experience,” said Fred Jarrar, vice president and general manager of indie’s Power Delivery Business Unit. “By offering our high performance, highly integrated smart connectivity SoCs, indie is enabling tier 1s and leading automakers to deliver on driver and passenger demand for a more immersive in-cabin experience and to capitalize on this rapidly emerging Autotech application.”
