The LH79531 is a 32-bit ARM7TDMI system-on-a-chip (SOC) featuring an integrated programmable color LCD controller supporting resolutions up to 1,024 x 768, up to 64,000 colors and 15 gray shades. The SOC device directly interfaces to STN, CSTN, TFT, and the company's TFT and DMTN panels.
The chip has 8K bytes of built-in, programmable cache/SRAM, which enables a processing speed of about 50 MIPS. A host of integrated peripherals include a direct memory access (DMA) controller, counters/timers, real-time clock, watchdog timer, GPIO, and pulse width modulators. A synchronous serial interface and a 4-MB/s IrDA controller, as well as an USB interface for connecting to PCs are also included on the chip.
Samples will be available in January 2001 with production scheduled for the second quarter of 2001. Price is under $14 each/10,000.
