TC3310 – Integrated Multi-Touch Controller and Display Driver for 1080RGBx1920 LTPS LCD

The TC3310 is an integrated display driver and touchscreen controller solution for FHD displays.  It is designed for COG (Chip on Glass) panel assembly, with an integrated touch screen display below 6 inches (4mm pitch), making it ideal for compact and medium-sized portable devices such as tablet PC’s and smart phones.

The TC3310 combines the high SNR and noise immunity of Parade’s TrueTouch™ technology with the display driver to enable premium touch features into the mass market. The TrueTouch™ firmware intelligently switches between display and touch scan modes to manage power while maximizing SNR.

The TC3310 accepts a MIPI-DSI v1.1 interface with up to 4 lanes and supports resolutions up to 1920 x 1080 RGB, up to 8 bit color.  An internal gamma correction circuit allows adjustment for panel characteristic to optimize display quality.  An integrated MTP ROM stores initialization settings, Gamma, and other settings.  The TC3310 includes Parade’s exclusive Smart-Backlight™ function for color and power optimization.
