PMIC Streamlines Automotive TFT-LCD Display Design

 

PMIC Streamlines Automotive TFT-LCD Display Design
TFT-LCD displays dominate the automotive market as they enter a competitive phase with rivaling technologies. In this phase, they can still be highly competitive by achieving higher efficiencies and higher integration in their design. In this design solution, we review a typical, non-integrated TFT-LCD display system and compare it to a highly integrated approach highlighting the latter advantages in terms of BOM and PCB size reduction. With a highly integrated approach, the entire power management system can be implemented with just two ICs, achieving higher competitiveness vs. emerging technologies.
