CerebrEX, Inc. announced that the company has begun shipping samples of the industry’s first eDP system driver, a.k.a. TED (TCON-embedded driver).
In the mobile communication and computing device industry, where the vigorous adoption of higher-density and battery-powered displays with small form factors is underway, issues facing the intra-panel design of conventional notebook panels include high component counts such as the timing controller (TCON), source drivers, cable and PCB, high BOM cost, and the high power consumption of the interface between the TCON and the source drivers.
The product CRX2000 is the first in the company’s eDP system driver series Panel System Integrated Controllers (PSICs). It combines a high performance eDP TCON and source drivers into a single chip intended for small and mid-sized display panels. The CRX2000 has made significant achievements, including:
all of which were successfully developed and patented by CerebrEX.
These attributes, combined with other CerebrEX proprietary technologies, can create displays that are superior in terms of functions and have higher performance at a lower cost than the conventional discrete TCONs can. CerebrEX PSIC can attain lower cost BOM, lower power consumption with a reduction of up to 30% and a slim panel design by removing a TCON board and integrating the peripheral components in a small module.
Several world-class panel vendors have decided to embark on CRX2000-based projects and expect to commence commercial shipments to PC OEMs next year.
Value propositions to panel vendors and PC OEMs:
The company is a venture-backed semiconductor start-up founded in 2012 and headquartered in Osaka, Japan, and it has an additional office in Tokyo, Taipei and Shanghai.
