Introduction to GDC – Remote Display Control with Integrated APIX®

Built on the 2D SEERIS™ graphics IP core and the high speed APIX® interface from Inova, the GDC family enables highly optimized and cost attractive solutions for a broad range of remote display uses.
The high-performance 2D SEERIS™ graphics core is an in-house development from Socionext and tailored to the specific needs of automotive and industrial systems.

APIX® is a high speed SERDES link technology developed by Inova Semiconductors. It is a point-to-point link empowering the simultaneous transmission of uncompressed video and additional control/ Ethernet data bidirectional. The APIX® has reached a mature state and is now being shipped in its second generation.

Additionally all devices within the GDC family offer a rich set of peripherals for complete versatility.
