Gate Driver features internal pattern generator.

Press Release Summary:

Cascadeable with bidirectional shift control, IXEP2300 Electronic Paper Display Gate Driver features 300 output drivers rated at 42 V. Outputs are typically driven with voltage supplies of +22 V and -20 V, and polarity of outputs can be set to control p-type or n-type thin film transistors. Equipped with sleep mode to minimize power consumption, IXEP2300 is suited for e-books, electronic shelf labels, smart cards, and signage.

Original Press Release:

IXYS Integrated Circuits Division Expands its Family of Flexible and Paper Display Drivers with the New 300 Channel Gate Driver

The IXEP2300 is added to ICD's Display Driver Portfolio

Beverly, Massachusetts, USA –  IXYS Integrated Circuits Division (ICD), Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of IXYS Corporation (NASDAQ: IXYS), announced the availability of the IXEP2300 electronic paper display (EPD) gate driver.  The IXEP2300 features 300 high voltage output drivers that are rated at 42V.  These outputs are typically driven with voltage supplies of +22V and -20V and drive the gates of thin film transistors (TFTs) of electronic paper displays.

The IXEP2300 has an internal pattern generator for applications where a minimal controller interface is desirable.  The polarity of the outputs can be set to control p-type or n-type TFTs.  The IXEP2300 is cascadeable with bidirectional shift control.  A sleep mode minimizes power consumption, which is desirable in battery operated EPDs.

The IXEP2300 is the cost-down version of the popular MXEI2300 electronic paper display gate driver.   The IXEP2300 can be used with the IXYS ICD's industry standard MXEI1480, 480 channel source driver, to provide a complete driver solution for EPDs.  Typical applications include eBooks, electronic shelf labels, smart cards, and signage.

The IXEP2300 is available as gold bumped die supplied in wafer form or in waffle pack carriers.  

Pricing and Availability

The IXEP2300 is available in production quantities. Pricing for OEM quantities of 25KU is $1.30.
