How to Improve Your Rear Seat Entertainment Design with FPGAs
Rear-seat entertainment (RSE) systems need high-quality video images and connectivity to satisfy consumers’ desire to duplicate their at-home viewing experiences on high-definition TVs, Blu-Ray players, or smartphones in their automobiles.
This demand requires significant graphics processing for higher-resolution multiple displays (1080p) and multiple input interfaces. RSE graphic processing units (GPUs) can only support a limited number of video streams and data packets due to the number of I/Os. Using an FPGA as an I/O companion is an ideal way to boost performance, as shown in figure below. By adding an FPGA to your design, you get the flexibility to quickly change the I/O configuration, even in the last phase of development, helping you meet different OEM and interface requirements.
