Engines Drive Fixed-Resolution FPDs

Designed for fixed-resolution, flat-panel displays (FPDs), the ADE3xxx display engine ICs cover a range of applications from analog- and digital-only XGA displays to dual-interface SXGA designs with a TV-video input. The devices support input resolutions up to 1,600 x 1,200 (UXGA) and output resolutions up to 1,280 x 1,040 (SXGA). Consisting of six devices in all, the series also features a digital YUV video-input option and a third-generation, triple 9-bit A/D converter with a low-jitter, line-lock PLL. The devices also incorporate the company's Perfect Picture technology that detects dark video and picture windows and independently controls brightness, contrast and gamma . Other features of the FPD engines include a programmable 30-bit gamma table, a Safety Mode that delivers a readable, color image without an external frame buffer, and a programmable bit-mapped or character-based, on-screen display engine.
