Automotive Display Driver Begins Volume Production

23 October 2018

MagnaChip Semiconductor Corp. has begun volume production of its display driver IC for automotive panel displays.

The application of this LCD-based display driver will extend to automotive applications such as instrument cluster, GPS navigation and car entertainment displays. MagnaChip said the display has been adopted by a leading Japanese panel maker for automotive center stack display panels.

According to market research firm IHS Markit, automotive display shipments will rise to 165 million units in 2018 and up to 200 million units by 2022. Part of this may be the future adoption of organic light emitting diode (OLED) displays for automotive, MagnaChip said.

The S8311 display driver has a maximum of 1,440 channel outputs and a mini low-voltage differential signaling interface and supports all types of TFT-LCD such as amorphous silicon (a-Si), low-temperature polysilicon (LTPS) and indium gallium zinc oxide (IGZO) for automotive applications. The IC was fabricated in-house using a 150 nm process.
