Towards versatile passive-matrix OLED driver/controller ASIC's
A new second-generation passive matrix OLED controller/driver IC was developed. Though the design was application-specifically directed onto integration into a OLED minidisplay panel module (e.g., by pad layout design being closely related to display connection schemes), versatile service in various applications was focused on. Therefore, in general they may also act as application-specific standard products (ASSP), if their built-in functions provide compatibility to a wide range of passive-matrix OLED panels. Additionally, the second generation supports various PMOLED display resolutions, area or full-color (RGB) operating modes and circuit techniques for OLED devices life-time improvement.
