Texas Instruments (TI) has introduced the DS90UB913Q serializer and DS90UB914Q deserializer, which are the newest additions to its FPD-Link III automotive-grade chipset family. The SerDes chipset provides a seamless video and data interface to megapixel driver assist camera modules, with no software overhead and fewer wires, resulting in reduced power consumption, cost and weight. These system-level SerDes enhancements are accelerating the adoption of camera safety systems in the mid- and entry-level vehicle segments. Applications include front-view camera for collision avoidance and traffic sign/pedestrian recognition, rear-view camera for backup protection, and surround-view cameras for parking assistance.
In-vehicle camera systems have become an important automotive safety component, typically combining multiple camera modules with advanced image analysis to help drivers monitor road conditions, detect hazards and avoid collisions. Automotive safety system designers will be able to use the FPD-Link III SerDes chipsets to connect cameras and displays to an electronic control unit (ECU), with thinner, more flexible cabling. The DS90UB913Q and DS90UB914Q units offer fast response times to increase driver safety with the continuous, bidirectional control channel on a single twisted pair cable providing low latency for precise multi-camera synchronization. The SerDes chipset operates over the -40˚C to 105˚C temperature range, making it suitable for heat-exposed installations.
