Toshiba America Electronic Components Inc. has expanded its family of mobile peripheral IC products with the introduction of the TC358870XBG Display Serial Interface (DSI). According to the company, the device is a 4K High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) to MIPI dual-DSI converter chipset with video format conversion.

This is the first and only device in the market that enables direct 4K HDMI video input to LCDs with MIPI dual-DSI interface, allowing small, form factor high-resolution mobile displays to be used in consumer and industrial applications, added Toshiba.

"The TC358870XBG provides design, performance and cost benefits making it suited for small, mobile consumer electronics and industrial products with high-resolution LCD displays requiring MIPI dual-DSI input," says Deepak Prakash, senior director for the Logic LSI Business Unit, System LSI Group at Toshiba. "Application processors with an HDMI used in traditional larger displays can now drive up to 3840 x 2160 display resolution in next-generation small form factor mobile devices including head-mounted displays (HMDs), digital camera displays, hand- held gaming accessories and wearable computing devices."

The TC358870XBG's 297MHz HDMI input supports up to 3840 x 2160 @ 24bpp at a refresh rate of 30fps and 2560 x 1600 @ 24bpp at a refresh rate of 60fps. The device supports common 3D video formats and protocols compatible with the HDMI 1.4 standard. The TC358870XBG supports a MIPI dual DSI up to 8Gb/s.

The Toshiba TC358870XBG is an 80-pin device for non-HDI boards with a small package size of 7 x 7mm, 0.65mm ball pitch and 1.2mm maximum height. Sample pricing for the TC358870XBG device is $5. Sample shipments are available with mass production scheduled for September, 2014.
