ILI9163 is a 262,144-color one-chip SoC driver for a-TFT liquid crystal display with resolution of 132RGBx162 dots, comprising a 396-channel source driver, a 162-channel gate driver, 48,114 bytes GRAM for graphic data of 132RGBx162 dots, and power supply circuit.
The ILI9163 supports 18-/16-/9-/8-bit data bus interface and serial peripheral interfaces (SPI). The moving picture area can be specified in internal GRAM by window address function. The specified window area can be updated selectively, so that moving picture can be displayed simultaneously independent of still picture area. ILI9163 can operate with 1.65V I/O interface voltage, and an incorporated voltage follower circuit to generate voltage levels for driving an LCD. The ILI9163 also supports a function to display in 8 colors and a sleep mode, allowing for precise power control by software and these features make the ILI9163 an ideal LCD driver for medium or small size portable products such as digital cellular phones, smart phone, MP3 and PMP where long battery life is a major concern.
