SUNNYVALE, Calif., November 15, 2019 ---Socionext Inc. will showcase its latest solutions at ICCAD (Nanjing, November 21-22, 2019), booth No.027~028.
ICCAD is the most important annual event in China's IC design industry. The theme of this year's conference is “Build Chip Ecology, Round Chip Dream” - with a deep-dive discussions into the opportunities and challenges faced by the IC industry, especially in the IC design industry. As a leading company in the IC industry, Socionext will showcase several latest solutions including Graphics IP, RF technologies, etc. Moreover, Socionext will be giving two keynote speeches at the event.
SEERIS Graphics IP
The SEERIS 2D Graphics IP is a building block concept combining a collection of graphics processing units focusing on 2D operations, display control and video capture on a system level to a more complex graphic subsystem. With its generic, flexible and silicon-proven concept, it allows for the development of a wide range of System-on-Chips (SoCs) types, sizes and resolutions.
Customers using SEERIS will be able to configure these blocks according to their specific needs and provide quality video experiences in a wide range of applications, including automotive, consumer, medical equipment, and connected homes. SEERIS helps to develop SoCs in a shorter time and therefore get them to market faster.
Cluster with DMS Solution
The DMS (Driver Monitoring System), as one of the automotive cockpit sensing media, can alert driver when signs of drowsiness or distraction are detected. Implanting the DMS algorithm into the cluster may provide a variety of key information such as driver identity, driving state and more, providing a higher level of intelligent application.
With the popularization of “Digital Transformation (DX)”, more and more IoT devices are becoming smarter. Since the year 2012, Socionext has started to develop its RF/mmWave technologies covering sub-GHz to mm-Wave featuring high accuracy, small size, and low power consumption. Socionext RF/mmWave solutions is ideal for a wide range of applications including IoT devices, security systems, smart home appliances and so on.
In-Vehicle Remote Display Solution
The connected, multi-display trend in automotive is driving high-quality development for automotive data transmission. The Socionext SC1701 series utilizes two display controllers which allows for flexible architectures with more than one display in a single chain. The SC1701 series offers added driver safety with multiple signature units that provides high-quality image display and video freezing detection.
High-Efficiency Processor SynQuacer™
Socionext “SynQuacer™”SC2A11 is a multi-core processor with 24 cores of Arm Cortex-A53. The processor is optimized to handle high volume throughput of small-load, individual tasks. The Arm TrustZone with extended feature is implemented into the SynQuacer SC2A11, and the processor can be used for applications where reliability and system integrity are essential.
8K Media Player “s8”
The “s8” 8K media player is ideal for applications such as large displays for public viewing and signages requiring ultra-high-definition 8K image quality. It supports real-time decoding of H.265 (HEVC) 8K video data, supports playback of 8K contents saved to USB memory and cloud distribution of 8K contents.
