Maxim Introduces an Automotive 4-Channel TFT-LCD Power Supply

October 25, 2020 by Hailey Stewart

This article highlights Maxim Integrated MAX25222 4-channel TFT-LCD power IC that provides symmetrical positive AVDD and negative NAVDD supplies.

The MAX25222 is a 4-channel TFT-LCD power IC that provides symmetrical positive AVDD and negative NAVDD supplies, as well as VGON and VGOFF gate supplies. In addition, a VCOM buffer with output voltage range above and below ground and a temperature measurement block are integrated.

The device contains non-volatile memory so that the values of all outputs can be calibrated for the lifetime of the device (maximum five times).

Programming is carried out using the built-in I2C interface, which can also be used to read back diagnostic information. A stand-alone mode is available after the device has been programmed.

The temperature sensor interface block measures the temperature, optionally allowing the VCOM output voltage to be adjusted depending on the measured temperature. The MAX25222 includes extensive diagnostics to aid in fulfilling ASIL-B safety level.

The MAX25222 is available in a TQFN package and operates in the -40 to 125°C temperature range.
