APIX3 (Automotive Pixel Link) is a multi-channel serialiser/deserialiser technology for high-resolution LED and video applications in motor vehicles. It is used in particular in modern infotainment and driver assistance systems (ADAS) and can simultaneously establish multiple display connections with a bandwidth of up to 12 Gbit/s and supports HD as well as Ultra HD displays.
The converter was developed by ARRK Engineering and has a flexibly controllable firmware. It enables easy analysis of APIX3 displays as well as uncomplicated debugging of the component. Both image and control data can be transmitted. The resolution of the HDMI interface can be adjusted automatically or manually to the respective APIX3 display. By integrating driver functions, a complex control device can be simulated. It is also possible to receive and evaluate MII Ethernet data.
