Global technology supplier Epson has developed and begun volume production of its first controller IC made for head-up displays.

The company said in a statement that it planned to produce 100,000 of the new controllers each month.

These ICs are used to correct the image distortion on curved windshields.

Head-up displays are designed to be read with minimum eye movement in order to enhance safety and lessen fatigue. While demand grows, issues like the cost of systems and development time have been hodling things back.

Epson said its new controller made the development of head-up display systems faster by makijng it possible to correct image distortion streamed from an SoC according to the curvature of a vehicle's windshield, without external memory.

The controller has its own display safety functions and could be used to build more reliable display systems.

Epson said the controller IC met the standards demanded by the automotive industry, being compliant with AEC-Q100 and worked at temperatures up to 105°C.

The Automotive Electronics Council is an industry group that creates standards for the reliability and qualification of automotive electronics. It was formed by the main automobile manufacturers in partnership with major electronic component manufacturers.

The AEC standard is a de facto global standard that has been widely adopted as a standard for automotive electronic components.
