SSD1289 is an all in one TFT LCD Controller Driver that integrated the RAM, power circuits, gate driver and source driver into a single chip. It can drive up to 262k color amorsphous TFT panel with resolution of 240 RGB x 320.
It also integrated the controller function and consists of 172,800 bytes (240 x 320 x 18 / 8) Graphic Display Data RAM (GDDRAM) such that it interfaced with common MPU through 8-/9-/16-/18-bit 6800-series / 8080-series compatible parallel interface or serial peripheral interface and stored the data in the GDDRAM. Auxiliary 18-bit video interface (VSYNC, HSYNC, DOTCLK, DEN) are integrated into SSD1289 for animation image display.
SSD1289 embeds DC-DC Converter and Voltage generator to provide all necessary voltage required by the driver with minimum external components. A Common Voltage Generation Circuit is included to drive the TFT-display counter electrode. An Integrated Gamma Control Circuit is also included that can be adjusted by software commands to provide maximum flexibility and optimal display quality.
SSD1289 can be operated down to 1.4V and provide different power save modes. It is suitable for any portable battery-driven applications requiring long operation period and compact size.
