Samsung unveils 'most efficient' multi-channel DDI for LCD panels
Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd announced what it touts as the most efficient multi-channel display driver IC (DDI) for high-resolution LCD panels. Capable of processing thousands of channels with just four image-refining ICs, the new 1026CH source driver IC (S6CR014) can power a 17-inch LCD panel (SXGA; 1,280 x 1,024 ), compared to ten typically used today, said the company.
With the required number of ICs reduced, the LCD module's power consumption will decrease and its overall price competitiveness is expected to improve. In addition, with the development of this next-generation multi-channel DDI, Samsung is proposing a new standard for this segment of the LCD industry.
"We employed a wide range of next-generation DDI core technologies to develop this source driver IC", said Sayoon Kang, principal engineer for Samsung's system LSI interconnect product and technology team. "With this new technology, we'll solidify our global leadership position in developing display driver ICs for the LCD market."
The press release said that Samsung was able to reduce the pad pitch inside the IC to 25µm, and that the company developed a new material-based advanced chip-on-film (COF) technology capable of printing film pattern pitch within 25µm.
