Press Release Summary:
Featuring integrated gate logic, Models MAX17120/MAX17121 are triple/dual level-shifting scan drivers for TFT panels. Each has 2 channels that switch complementarily. Outputs swing from +40 V to -30 V and can drive capacitive loads. To save power, complementary outputs share charge of capacitive load before they change states. Housed in 5 x 5 mm TQFN package, Model MAX17120 is suited for large HDTV LCD panels, while Model MAX17121, housed in 4 x 4 mm TQFN package, suits regular-sized panels.

Fully Integrated, High-Voltage Scan Drivers Minimize Panel Cost in LCD HDTVs
Maxim's latest scan drivers integrate all logic needed for high-performance scan-driver systems.
SUNNYVALE, CA - Maxim Integrated Products (NASDAQ: MXIM) introduces the MAX17120/MAX17121, triple/dual, high-voltage, level-shifting scan drivers for TFT panels with integrated gate logic. These devices minimize panel cost in LCD TVs by integrating all logic required to implement a high-performance scan-driver system. Each scan driver has two channels that switch complementarily. Their outputs swing from +40V to -30V and can swiftly drive capacitive loads. In order to save power, these complementary outputs share the charge of their capacitive load before they change states. These devices are well suited for driving large- (MAX17120) and regular-sized (MAX17121) HDTV LCD panels.
The MAX17120 is available in a 5mm x 5mm, 32-pin TQFN package, and the MAX17121 is available in a 4mm x 4mm, 24-pin TQFN; both packages have a maximum thickness of 0.8mm for ultra-thin LCD panels. Prices start at $0.70 (1000-up, FOB USA).
