Los Angeles-The Eclipse brand will disappear from the car electronics retail aftermarket after a run of 21 years.

Parent company Fujitsu Ten Corp. of America confirmed plans to discontinue sales of Eclipse mobile audio, video and navigation products in the struggling aftermarket in North America, Latin America and South America.

Fujitsu will merge the Eclipse business with its existing OEM car electronics unit to expand Fujitsu's OEM accessory business, which markets entertainment, communication and safety products as options sold by new vehicle dealers and manufacturers.

Eclipse was the first aftermarket autosound company in the 1980s to introduce a digital data bus for car audio components, and it was known for its double0DIN in-dash navigation/entertainment units.
