THine Electronics, Inc., the global leader in high-speed serial interface and provider of mixed-signal LSI today announced that THine exhibits just 1-pair-cable transmission technology for real-time 8MP (megapixel) 60fps (frame-per-second) camera data without compression by THine’s ultra-high-speed 16Gbps (giga-bit-per-second) technology at ZMP FORUM 2016, Tokyo. FORUM is held by ZMP Inc. located in Tokyo, which is the leading venture company in the field of autonomous driving and related technology.
Autonomous driving, ADAS, and mirrorless side/rear-viewing system have technical trends to require higher resolution of cameras. In addition to THine’s just 1-pair-cable transmission solution for full-HD resolution cameras with its brand-new 4Gbps V-by-One®HS products, THine has developed its 16Gbps technology. This achievement of 4-times faster transmission enables 8MP automotive camera systems to avoid the increase of cable weights and fuel consumption with lower power consumption and port density.
“8MP data transmission shall bring the critical advantage for our customers,” commented Mr. Kazutaka Nogami, CEO and President of THine Electronics, “since image sensors are the only one that can sense appearance and texture in addition to sensing shape and THine believes autonomous driving requires higher resolution at the level of 8MP.”
THine plans to launch its 16Gbps technology, firstly for 8K televisions as V-by-One®US in the first-half of 2017 and, followed by the consumer electronics, automotive applications, with its plan to develop 32Gbps technology and higher.
