Integrated Drivers for E Ink Segmented Displays
Dialog Semiconductor Plc launches a range of display drivers and evaluation kits to support electronic paper segmented displays from E Ink Corp. The DA852x drivers are highly integrated devices, and they are capable of driving 20-, 64-, 96-, 192- and 256-segment paper-thin electronic displays which can be integrated into several applications such as mobile phones, capacity meters (e.g. memory cards), electronic shelf labels, watches and clocks, games, medical devices and smart cards. Each display driver is available in both LGA package and bumped die format, and requires two external capacitors to complete a small form factor system. To shorten the design and development cycle, the company has developed a series of evaluation kits to support each display driver IC.
