Toshiba Launches Interface Bridge with Backlight Level Controller for LCD Displays for Mobile Devices

Toshiba Corporation (TOKYO:6502) has launched MIPI-DSI to LVDS interface-converter bridge LSIs with a backlight level controller for LCD displays that are suited to use in mobile devices, such as tablet PCs and UltrabooksTM. The new line-up includes support for panel resolutions up to WUXGA (1920 x 1200) at 24bit/60fps. Samples will be available from March with mass production scheduled to start in August 2013.
The new products drastically reduce the power consumption of mobile devices by optimizing the brightness of the LCD display backlighting to meet ambient light conditions. The LSIs are also able to maintain image detail in darker areas of the display by analyzing and processing brightness data in lighter and darker areas of the image.
