SiliconCore unveils three technologies
SiliconCore Technology (SCT), a manufacturer of LED displays, has announced three technologies to work within the company’s Common Cathode architecture.
The first technology is a SCL8080 LED driver chip, which culminates a 2.5 year development cycle. This driver now powers 640 pixels per chip, a benchmark that represents a doubling in the scan rate, a four-fold increase in processing speed and a five-fold increase in pixel processing per driver.
The second enhancement is a Precision Current Pump (PCP). Each LED printed circuit board (PCB) can inherently possess small variations in impedance for each LED pixel, so this technology compensates for the variations — ensuring complete integrity in every light pulse from each pixel.
The final new technology is the Spread Spectrum Driver (SSD). Electro-magnetic interference (EMI) is a critical issue with all contemporary electronics so SSD technology evenly distributes the LED display’s pixel clock speed over a several MHz range, thus eliminating energy spikes and reducing peak EMI by 20db.
