Parade Technologies Introduces Industry's First Single Chip TED (Tcon-Embedded Driver) that Supports VESA eDP 1.4b Panel Self-Refresh


New 1932-Channel TED provides highly integrated solution for slim
LTPS and Oxide TFT panels up to 1920x1200 resolution

, Ltd. (OTC:4966), a leading high-speed
interface, video display, and touch controller IC supplier, today
announced a new highly-integrated eDP Timing Controller (Tcon) embedded
driver (TED) IC developed for thin-profile LCD display panels. The TC3210
provides a single chip display driver solution to replace the
traditional eDP Tcon mated up with separate source driver chips. The
TC3210 was developed for Chip-on-Glass (COG) applications to support the
new generation of sleek LCD panel assemblies.

The TC3210 is configurable to support all panel resolutions up to
1920x1200 using an 18 or 24-bit color format. Its integrated eDP Tcon
fully supports the VESA eDP 1.4b standard including PSR (Panel Self
Refresh) and PSR2, using an on-chip, integrated frame buffer, and
supports a variety of proprietary video interface protocols offered by
major CPU, GPU and SoC vendors. The integrated source drive supports up
to 1932 output channels and supports 1 to 2 MUX, 1 to 3 MUX, and 1 to 6
MUX sub-pixel driving structures to significantly reduce the number of
required source driving outputs, accordingly.

"Parade has remained the leading eDP Tcon supplier starting with the
introduction of eDP ten years ago," said Jimmy Chiu, Executive VP of
Marketing at Parade Technologies. "We have also become a major supplier
of high speed point-to-point source drivers, and now the TC3210 brings
this expertise together into a single chip. One chip means less panel
power and BOM cost, and a sleeker form factor for the system OEMs."

The TC3210 is designed for Flip Chip on Glass application on both LTPS
(Low-Temperature Polycrystalline Silicon) and Oxide TFT (thin-film
transistor) panels. The mounting of this highly integrated chip directly
onto the LCD panel results in reduced display form factor, BOM cost, and
power consumption, all of which benefit portable, battery-powered
systems. The TC3210 requires no external crystal or timing reference,
includes a programmable gamma buffer, and includes Parade's exclusive
Smart-Backlight™ feature for additional color and power optimization.
Its fully programmable row and column driver timing enables the TC3210
to serve a broad range of panels types, and it provides synchronization
signals that support a wide range of touch controllers.


The TC3210 is offered in a gold-bumped COG (Chip-on-Glass) physical form
factor. Samples are available now.
