Milpitas, Calif. California Micro Devices is showcasing its Mobile Display Digital Interface (MDDI) and Mobile Industry Processor Interface (MIPI) client solutions for high-speed serial interface display interfaces in mobile handsets at SID's Display Week 2008, Los Angeles, Calif., May 20-22. The company also is highlighting several new protection technologies for LCD TV and handset display interfaces. These include XtremeESD low capacitance electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection devices, MediaGuard port protection for HDMI 1.3 digital TV as well as DisplayPort for PC applications and Praetorian EMI filters for mobile display interfaces.
CMD's serial interface display controllers are designed for wireless handsets that utilize the Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) MDDI and MIPI serial interface display standards. The CM5100 fully compliant, MDDI-based serial client features an integrated display controller with embedded memory that supports primary TFT-LCDs with resolutions up to QVGA (320x240) and secondary displays. CMD will also be presenting a unique MDDI-to-MIPI serial interface bridge architecture and its future MIPI product plans.
Low capacitance, low-profile ESD protection arrays including new PicoGuardXP and PicoGuard XS products from the recently announced XtremeESD family will be showcased. XtremeESD products are suitable for protection of high-speed serial interfaces in digital TVs and LCD display monitors such as MDDI, MIPI or USB2.0 High-Speed. On display includes the recently-announced CM1234, the second PicoGuard XS product in the XtremeESD family to be introduced, offering ESD protection to IEC61000-4-2 Level 4 ±20 kV air discharge and 15 kV contact discharge.
Other protection devices on display include the first PicoGuard XS product, the CM1233-08DE, as well as the CM1231-02S0, available in a SOT23-6 package, to protect two data lines.
Praetorian EMI filters for mobile applications will also be on shown. These EMI filter arrays are designed for the latest multimedia-enabled wireless handsets with high data rates between the baseband processor and high resolution displays and cameras. The portfolio of EMI filters for high bandwidth applications has been expanded to include a new Praetorian II family of inductor-capacitor (LC) filters. These devices allow mobile handset designers to address many higher bandwidth data interfaces that cannot be served by lower cost resistor-capacitor (RC) based filters, said CMD.
A selection of the latest multimedia handsets featuring CMD's display controllers will be on display. In addition, two CMD product presentations will be featured in the Exhibitors' Forum on Tuesday, May 20.
Pricing: Available in a 16-lead TDFN package, the CM1234 is priced at $0.59 each. The CM1231-02S0 is priced at $0.38 each. Available in a 16-lead TDFN package, the CM1233-08DE is priced at $0.57 each. All in quantities of 1,000.
Availability: Both the CM1234 and CM1233-08DE devices are currently sampling and will be in full production this quarter. The CM1231-02S0 is in full production.
