The EC9232 is an integrated power supply solution optimized for small to medium size thin-film transistor (TFT)
liquid crystal displays (LCD’s).
The boost converter operates at the frequency of 1.2MHz. The integrated N channel FET has a typical current limit of 3.0A and can support output voltages up to 20V.
The gate-on and gate-off charge pumps provide regulated TFT-LCD gate-on and gate-off supplies.
Both outputs can be adjusted by external resistive voltage-dividers.
The GPM is a flicker compensation circuit to reduce the coupling effect of gate lines; the gate-shaping timing is controlled by the timing-controller to modulate the Gate-On voltage, VGHM.
It also can delay the Gate-On voltage during power-on to achieve a correct power-on sequence for gate driver
ICs. Both the power-on delay time and the falling time of the Gate-On voltage are programmable by external
capacitor and resistor.
The integrated operational amplifier is typically used for LCD VCOM driving; the output can sink or source up to 350mA short-circuit current.
This operational amplifier features fast slew rate (40V/us), wide bandwidth (20MHz), and rail-to-rail outputs as well. A built-in voltage detector generates a reset signal when the input voltage drops below a specified level.
The reset signal is active low, and the detecting level is decided by an external resistor divider.
The EC9232 is available in a thin 24-pin 4×4 mm VQFN green package.
