SoC device with enhanced peripherals.

Renesas Technology America, Inc. announces a system-on-chip (SoC) system with performance and capability enhancements for car navigation systems and other in-vehicle car information system products. The single-chip SH7775 32-bit processor, running at speeds up to 600 MHz, achieves performance of 1 GIPS (giga instructions per second) and up to 4.2 GFLOPS (giga floating-point operations per second). The SuperH device incorporates a GPS baseband processing function and a graphics engine that is optimized for map drawing and 3-D images. It also provides many additional peripheral functions that are necessary for in-vehicle safety and convenience systems. Capabilities such as triangle 3D drawing and texture mapping enable more realistic location and direction displays on navigation screens.
