Toshiba launches low power consumption interface bridge for LCD displays

TOKYO —

Toshiba Corp has launched a MIPI-DSI to LVDS interface-converter bridge LSI for LCD displays that is suited for use in mobile devices, such as tablet PCs and Ultrabooks.

The new lineup supports panel resolutions up to WUXGA (1920 x 1200 x 24bit @ 60fps). Samples are available now with mass production scheduled to start in March.

The new interface bridge changes the power supply operating voltage of the LVDS operating system from 3.3V to 1.8V, reducing the power consumption of the LSI to 30% that of Toshiba’s current product, a level that can contribute to reduced overall power consumption by products in which it is used.

    Good going Toshiba. Electricity cost is going to go through the roof in the future as with other energy sources. Introducing new technology to offset energy spikes is the best way Japan can keep the lid on the pot from boiling over.

    This has nothing to do with energy generation or electricity costs. The savings are in the magnitude around 100 milli-Watt, and are meant to bring down the overall use of energy in PORTABLE COMPUTERS AND TABLETS from the now average of 4-5W (during use) to something much easier to manage on a small battery. Making every interface chip on every screen in all of japan 30% more efficient won't even come close to the amount of power needed for you to post your comment (and keep it there for long enough for my to comment on it), let alone solving japan's energy problems.
