Range Rover got brand new virtual display system

The Range Rovers, in the close future will be benefiting from some display virtual system, created by Visteon, the American maker. The model is a lot closer from becoming a reality, as Fujitsu Microelectronics America announced it will get the 'Jade' MB86R01 SoC GDC (graphics display controller) for its system.

The senior director at Fujitsu - Philip Hughes stated for the press. 'We worked closely with Visteon on the new design, which reflects our continuing commitment to deliver the industry's optimal high-end, high-performance graphics controller technology, and to work closely with our customers to deliver innovative solutions'.

This virtual display system will be created from a full-color TFT 12.3-inch screen, integrating lots of operating modes and functions. The driver will have info, using a message center, graphical displays and virtual gauges. This system will replace in the future the present instrument cluster.

The SoC Fujitsu will be allowing for 'excellent display resolution, hardware and software scalability, and support for third-party software systems and tools' says the supplier of the graphic processor. It has an ARM9 CPU core, internal memory frequency of 320MHz, display resolutions 320x234 - 1024x768. 6 overlay window layers displays plus 2 video-capture modules supporting ITU656, YUV and RGB formats.

The director continued 'The combination of the ARM9 MCU core and media-connectivity peripherals, along with 2D and 3D rendering, geometry engine, and texture-mapping capabilities, makes the Fujitsu MB86R01 'Jade' an excellent fit for the current Range Rover cluster and future applications'.
