Toshiba America Electronic Components announced the latest offering in its family of display serial interface (DSI) chipsets, the TC358779XBG HDMI to MIPI DSI converter. The device features LSI video processing and de-interlacing and is designed for small form-factor LCD displays and similar video products used for personal or industrial purposes.

The TC358779XBG significantly reduces the memory bandwidth and video processing requirements on the host processor. Up-down scaling and colour-space conversion allows output from the application processor to be formatted and scaled to match the display panel's output resolution and colour format.

The TC358779XBG supports resolution up to 1920 x 1200 at 24bpp at a refresh rate of 60fps. It can display 3D video formats and protocols compatible with the HDMI 1.4 standard. This device supports an MIPI DSI interface up to 4Gbit/s to an LCD display panel with configurable 1, 2, 3, or 4 data lanes with lane speeds of up to 1Gbit/s per lane.

The Toshiba TC358779XBG is an 80-pin device for non-HDI boards with a package size of 7.0 x 7.0mm, 0.65mm ball pitch and 1.0mm maximum height. Samples of the TC358779XBG device can be purchased for $5 per unit. Mass production is expected to begin in December 2013.
