Timing Controller ICs Meet Direct Drive Monitor Spec

Sept. 23, 2009

The DP627 and DP628 Direct Drive Monitor (DDM) timing controllers with DisplayPort input are fully compliant with both the VESA Direct Drive Monitor Standard and the VESA DisplayPort Standard version 1.1a. These controllers support all display sizes up to the 4M-pixel WQXGA (2560 x 1600) resolution. The devices are designed to mount directly on the LCD panel Tcon board and include mini-LVDS outputs to interface with the column drivers. The DP627 features a four-lane DisplayPort input and a two channel mini-LVDS output supporting display resolutions up to 1920 x 1200, targeting midrange displays. The DP628 includes a four-lane DisplayPort input with a four channel mini-LVDS output, supporting resolutions up to 2560 x 1600, targeting high-end displays. Both devices also include multichannel audio support through I2S and S/PDIF output ports. This enables the Direct Drive Monitor to render the audio stream embedded in the DisplayPort input. The DP627 and DP628 are currently in production. The DP627 is offered in a 128-pin LQFP package and is priced at $4.50 each in lots of 100,000. The DP628 is offered in a 176-pin TQFP package and is priced at $7.00 each in like quantities. PARADE TECHNOLOGIES INC., San Jose, CA. (408) 329-5540.
