Automotive 1 Gbit/s Link Goes Standard
The growth in complexity of highly integrated semiconductors is a challenge for the industry. Semiconductors with a lot of pins are bigger, more difficult to handle during manufacturing and are more vulnerable to malfunctions. With APIX (Automotive PIXel link) initially developed by INOVA Semiconductors there is now an industry accepted technology available to address these limitations. APIX is a 1 Gbit/s differential serial link capable of handling video streams in harsh automotive environment, enabling chip designers to replace parallel interfaces with a 2-pin serial interface for video pixel data reducing the number of pins on chips significantly. This addresses the need of next generation automotive applications using cameras and displays.
