Toshiba Corporation (TOKYO:6502) has launched MIPI-DSI to LVDS
interface-converter bridge LSIs with a backlight level controller for
LCD displays that are suited to use in mobile devices, such as tablet
PCs and UltrabooksTM. The new line-up includes support for
panel resolutions up to WUXGA (1920 x 1200) at 24bit/60fps. Samples will
be available from March with mass production scheduled to start in
The new products drastically reduce the power consumption of mobile devices by optimizing the brightness of the LCD display backlighting to meet ambient light conditions. The LSIs are also able to maintain image detail in darker areas of the display by analyzing and processing brightness data in lighter and darker areas of the image.
