IXYS Integrated Circuits Division Offers New 400 Channel Electronic Paper Display (EPD) Driver IC

IXYS Corp.
3540 Bassett St.
Santa Clara, CA, 95054 2704

Press release date: February 4, 2014

The IXEP1400 is added to IXYS ICD's EPD Driver Portfolio

Beverly, Massachusetts, USA — IXYS Integrated Circuits Division (ICD), Inc.,an IXYS Company, (NASDAQ: IXYS), announced the availability of the IXEP1400 electronic paper display (EPD) gate driver.  The IXEP1400 features 400 outputs that are rated for +/-15V.  Data entered via the shift register input controls the pixels of the display

“EPD’s , are the latest thin and energy efficient ‘paper’ based flexible displays, that are suited for a wide range of applications.  These displays are very energy efficient and are visible in all light conditions, are low cost and do not need any backlighting like LCD’s. IXYS ICD has been developing the IC technology to drive these displays, and introduces them as ASSP’s (Application Specific Standard Products) in the market”, said Mark Heisig General Manger of IXYS ICD.

The IXEP1400 can operate with a maximum clock frequency of 50MHz, and is capable of bidirectional data transfer.  Multiple IXEP1400 can share a common data bus.  The IXEP1400 supports 3-level gray scaling.  

The IXEP1400 is a cost reduced and lower power version of the industry standard and popular MXEI1480 EPD source driver.  It is suitable to drive segment or active matrix displays.  The IXEP1400 can be used with the IXYS ICD's new IXEP2300 300 channel gate driver to provide a complete driver solution for EPDs.  Typical applications include wearable mobile devices, portable battery operated mobile devices, secondary displays for smart phones and tablets,, eBooks, electronic shelf labels, smart cards, and signage.
The IXEP1400 is available as gold bumped die, supplied in wafer form, or in waffle pack carriers.  

The IXEP1400 is available in production quantities.
