The ILI9488 is a 16.7M single-chip SoC driver for a-Si TFT liquid crystal display panels with a resolution of 320(RGB) x 480 dots. The ILI9488 is comprised of a 960-channel source driver, a 480-channel gate driver, 345,600 bytes GRAM for graphic data of 320 (RGB) x 480 dots, and power supply circuit.
The ILI9488 supports parallel DBI Type B 8-/9-/16-/18-/24-bit data bus interfaces and DBI Type C 3-/4-line serial peripheral interfaces (SPI) to input commands. The ILI9488 supports DPI (16-/18-/24-bit) data bus for video image display. For MIPI*-DSI* high-speed interface mode, the ILI9488 also provides one data lane and one clock lane that can support up to 500Mbps on MIPI-DSI link.
The ILI9488 can operate with 1.65V I/O interface voltage and supports a wide range of analog power supplies. The ILI9488 supports 8-colors display and sleep mode power management functions, ideal for portable products where battery power conservation is desirable, such as digital cellular phones, smart phones, MP3 players, personal media players and similar devices with color graphics displays.
