Automotive Display Power

Automotive displays are getting bigger and brighter, delivering sharp images of the surrounding environment, automotive controls, and infotainment options. As automotive OEMs bring more autonomous vehicle functions to market, automotive displays will continue to play a critical role. To design an effective automotive display, you have to address (within the space constraints of these designs):

  • Higher power requirements
  • Lower VIN requirements
  • Functional safety standards
  • Electromagnetic interference (EMI)

Our portfolio of automotive display power ICs addresses each of these challenges. Highly integrated devices fit into the small spaces of display designs. ICs with local dimming provide very high contrast ratios that make display colors more crisp and vivid, helping to minimize driver fatigue. Compliance with the Automotive Safety Integrity Level (ASIL) mitigates common voltage-related fault scenarios for higher reliability. Features such as spread-spectrum frequency modulation, phase-shifting, and gate slew rate control help reduce EMI.
