THine Electronics, Inc. (JASDAQ: 6769), the global leader in high-speed serial interface and provider of mixed-signal LSI, today announced its newly entrance into automotive timing controller (TCON) markets with its original high-speed LCD driver technology, “eDriCon” for automotive LCD panels with full HD resolution or more.
Automotive LCD panels recently require higher resolution of full HD with the technical trend of more resolution while it used to be WVGA (800 x 480) generally. THine, based-on its accumulated technologies and know-how in high-speed interfaces, has developed new timing controller technologies with its original high-speed LCD driver interface, eDriCon. Applying know-how of V-by-One® HS technology, de facto standard of high-speed interface in higher-resolution DTV, eDriCon achieves the speed of 1.2 Gbps. Since eDriCon has embedded clock data on pixel data lines, this new technology can reduce the data cable drastically one-sixth of the widely used LCD driver interface, saving costs and required space for data transmission. For example, automotive full HD LCD panel system with 24 pairs of driver interface can reduce the number of cables to 4 pairs. THine plans to start delivering the first sample with this eDriCon technology for global customers that request high-end technical value in 2013, supporting the widely used driver interface.
