New Graphics Display LSI for Digital Dashboards and Car Navigation
Featuring the Industry’s Top-Ranking Rendering Performance
Enables the development of next-generation automotive display systems using a single chip
Yokohama, Japan, October 14, 2010 – Fujitsu Semiconductor Limited today announced the development of
MB86R11, a LSI chip used in the graphic displays of automotive digital dashboards and car navigation
systems. Samples of the new chip will begin shipping at the end of December 2010.
MB86R11 is a single-chip system LSI that combines
ARM’s latest Cortex-A9™ CPU core with four video
inputs, up to 3 display outputs, and various of peripheral
interfaces for in automotive applications. MB86R11’s
rendering performance positions it as an industry leader
in the field of graphics display chips for automotive
MB86R11 makes it possible to freely change the content
of the display based on the driving scenario, in addition
to promoting safe driving by enabling drivers to use
camera video to check the entire surroundings of a car,
supporting eco-friendly driving, and conveying various
information to drivers in an intuitive manner.
In recent years, there has been an increase in devices

that display information about the inside and surroundings
of an automotive, such as cluster displays, center displays
and head-up displays. As a result, there has been demand for high-definition graphics displays for use in
display devices that convey information pertaining to the automotive and its surroundings to the driver in the
intuitive manner.
In addition, there has been an increased need to connect traditional cluster displays—which show a
speedometer, fuel-gauge and other information—with video content like map images and the music data from
car entertainment system.
Furthermore, there has been greater demand for automotive cameras to provide visual assistance to drivers.
In particular, the passage of legislation in the US requiring car manufacturers to improve the rear visibility in
vehicles is expected to accelerate momentum for the widespread application of on-board cameras.

outputs, enabling the high-speed image processing of video data input and output from these interfaces. For
example, MB86R11 has made it possible using a single chip to develop a 3D monitoring system that
synthesizes and converts a composite image of the synthesizes and converts a composite image of the
surroundings of a vehicle in real time from the images of four cameras mounted on the front, rear, left and
right of the vehicle.
A function that automatically corrects the image contrast ensures high visibility at night or when high contract
image in the same scene. In addition, this function makes it possible to correct the image of TV or DVD video,
making it clear and bright. When displaying 3D maps in a car navigation system, graphics of not only
intersections—which can already be displayed in high quality using existing systems—but also streets and
scenery can be displayed using higher-resolution textures.
In the spring of 2011, Fujitsu plans to develop an upgraded version of MB86R11 for even higher definition
display panels. In addition, the company plans to offer authoring tools that reduce the work involved in
developing human machine interfaces (HMI) that employ graphics.
Sample Availability
MB86R11: From early December, 2010
Product Features
1. Four Built-In Video Capture Functions
The four video input ports enable simultaneous processing of various different video images. The input
function supports resolution up to 1,280 x 720 pixels, along with the enlargement/reduction function and the
function for converting moving images from interlaced format to progressive format, combine to enable
images with minimal noise to be generated.
One of four video ports can handle interlaced input of up to a maximum of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels, enabling the
input of digital TV images.
2. Three Output Display Functions and High-Speed 2D/3D Rendering Functions
It is equipped with 3 display controllers, 2 of which can multiplex and output 2 screens each, thereby
accommodating up to 5 display outputs.
With 8 display levels and an interlayer blending function, the outline of overlaid images on a background map
screen dissolves, enabling images to blend into their surroundings. In addition, the dither function and
gamma correction function enable high-quality images on displays with different resolution levels and color
The built-in programmable-shader accurately renders light reflections and shadows, resulting in highly
textured and life-like graphics images.
3. Built-In Image Enhancement Circuit
A built-in dedicated video processing engine makes adjustments for edge enhancement, chromatic correction,
backlighting, and to enhance the contrast of nighttime footage, resulting in higher-quality video images.
In addition, because backlight brightness is dynamically adjusted in accordance with the video stream data,
power consumption for the system is reduced.
