Digital cockpit processing unit

Block diagram


The digital cockpit processing unit (DCPU) is the heart of the integrated cockpit infotainment system. The unit integrates functions of the traditional head unit, cluster and head-up display (HUD) into a single controller. The DCPU generates video graphics to the remote cluster display, HUD, center stack display and multiple auxiliary displays, while processing inputs from cameras (rear and side), the surround-view system (SVS), HMI, radio tuners and in-vehicle connectivity. Our integrated circuits, reference designs and products enable you efficiently design DPCU systems and decrease development time.

Design requirements

Digital cockpit processing unit designs require:

  • Support for multiple high-bandwidth video and data links.
  • Efficient power management of high-performance SoC.
  • High-speed signal design in a mixed-signal environment.
  • Integration and reduced design complexity to achieve high functionality in small spaces.
  • Balance meeting EMI requirements with performance.
