MagnaChip Unveils Passive Matrix Organic LED for Mobile Devices

MagnaChip Semiconductor Ltd., a leading global designer, developer and manufacturer of image sensor solutions, mixed-signal and digital multimedia semiconductors, today, announced the launch of its high-performance, feature optimized Passive Matrix Organic Light Emitting Diode (PMOLED) (MC2EP7202) product designed for use in the main displays of mobile phones and MP3 players.

The MC2EP7202 supports QQVGA (128×160) resolution and 262,144 colors. With minimum power consumption, it supports system (68/80 series MPU), RGB, and VSYNC parallel interface, as well as serial interface (SPI). The MC2EP7202 is targeted for various panel size products and for partial display and 50X4 icon function, allowing it to be used in slim and wide-angle mobile phones.

Davis Mok, Vice President of Marketing in MagnaChip’s Display Solutions Division, commented, “MagnaChip’s EP7202 product addresses a weakness of PMOLED products by providing a cross-talk-free solution, which supports gamma and icon functions and is currently not available in the market. This is an exciting opportunity for MagnaChip as PMOLED technology is expected to be applied to QQVGA (128X160) mobile phones beginning in Q4 2006. MagnaChip’s solution will provide unique value by offering a highly integrated PMOLED solution for use in many leading mobile phone and MP3 player displays.”

The EP7202 is currently available with planned mass production in Q4 2006. The EP7202 solution will be produced using 0.18 um process technology.
