MagnaChip Launches QVGA TFT Driver IC for Mobile Phone Displays

MagnaChip Semiconductor Ltd., a leading global designer, developer and manufacturer of image sensor solutions, mixed-signal and digital multimedia semiconductors, announced the launch of its optimized TA7501 product designed for use in mobile phone displays.

The unique TA7501 solution supports slim type mobile phones by offering distinctive wide viewing angles and 262K colors. Specifically, to support the wide viewing angles, this product offers multiple features, including In-Plane Switching, Multi-Domain Vertical Alignment, Patterned Vertical Alignment, and Advanced Fringe Field Switching. Further, the product has VCOM calibration with built-in non-volatile memory and reduced cross-talk noise.

Davis Mok, Vice President of Marketing in MagnaChip’s Display Solutions Division, commented, “In today’s marketplace, many existing QVGA solutions fall behind in providing TFT panels for wide viewing angles. MagnaChip’s new QVGA solution is not only able to support several optimized wide viewing angles, it also provides an optimal solution for the newer and slimmer mobile phones available today.”
