Socionext Europe GmbH



ARM® Cortex®-A9 Single Core Processors, 2D Engine SEERIS™, 3D OpenGL® ES 2.0 GPU, four VideoCapture Units and three Display Controllers Including APIX2®

Designed for cost sensitive markets the ARM® Cortex®-A9 Single Core Processor SoCs offer low power consumption on highly integrated single chip architectures. The MB86R1x Family combines a high-performance CPU with four video inputs and up to three display outputs, enabling high-speed image processing of video data I/O from these interfaces.

The combination of Socionext’s 2D Engine SEERIS™ and the in-house developed 3D OpenGL® ES 2.0 Engine, means highly flexible and powerful graphics processing is possible. Tailored for embedded use, SEERIS™ allows the combination of graphics, such as videos, pictures, icons or 3D OpenGL® ES 2.0 graphics, to be rendered by the GPU. This particular combination of graphics processing can be adapted for different applications.

The essential key feature of MB86R12 is its Inova Semiconductors’ high-speed APIX2® (Automotive/Advanced Pixel Link) GBit/s interface. This point-to-point connectivity transmits uncompressed and resolution independent pixel data over long distances for cameras and displays. The APIX® technology consists of a downstream link and an optional upstream link. Please refer to the Graphic Display Controller (GDC) family supporting the APIX receiver for remote displays units.

Multiple performance and package options are available.
