EC9219 – TFT- LCD DC-DC Converters with OP Amp

General description

The EC9219 include a high-performance step-up regulator, and high-current operational amplifiers for active-matrix thin-film transistor (TFT) liquid-crystal displays (LCDs).The step-up DC-DC converter provides the regulated supply voltage for the panel source driver ICs. The converter is a high-frequency (1.2MHz or 640KHZ) current-mode regulator with an integrated 18V n-channel MOSFET that allows the use of ultra-small inductors and ceramic capacitors. It provides fast transient response to pulsed loads while achieving efficiencies over 85%. The EC9219 includes one operational amplifier. These amplifiers are designed to drive the LCD backplane (VCOM) and/or the gamma-correction divider string. The devices feature high output current (±150mA), fast slew rate (17V/μs), wide bandwidth (12MHz), and rail-to-rail inputs and outputs The EC9219 are available in 14- pin thin TSOP packages with a maximum thickness of 1mm for ultra-thin LCD panels.
