The MB88395 from Fujitsu Microelectronics America is an automotive controller that transmits high-definition video over the 1394 in-vehicle multimedia network. The world’s first 1394 automotive controller, according to the company, MB88395 can simultaneously transmit multiple streams around the vehicle, such as HD video (1280 dots x 720 lines) from Blu-Ray DVDs, digital TV, and car-navigation images. The controller uses a high-speed 800 Mbps physical layer and link layer, along with the Fujitsu SmartCODEC, which provides high compression and can transmit HD video without perceptible latency. This combination brings the HD experience to rear-seat entertainment, reduces vehicle mass, and improves fuel efficiency. The combination reduces the system cost of in-vehicle multimedia networks by up to 30%, says the company, while reducing the number of wire harnesses by a maximum of 70%.
