Magnachip launches 5G-ready smartphone DDICs
MagnaChip has expanded its high frame rate (HFR) display driver integrated circuit (DDIC) range for organic light emitting diode (OLED) smartphone displays.
HFR technology improves the image quality of any screen by increasing the number of frames (images) used per second. For 5G smartphones, it is vital, argues Magnachip, as it means a vivid and smooth visual experience for users.
The company has been producing HFR OLED smartphone DDICs since 2018, when it introduced a 120Hz HFR DDIC for FHD+ (full high definition+) OLED smartphone displays. All of MagnaChip’s HFR OLED products support 144Hz for FHD+ displays and 120Hz for QHD+ (quad high definition+) displays.
MagnaChip Semiconductor designs and manufactures analogue and mixed-signal semiconductors for communications, IoT, consumer, industrial and automotive applications. The company provides a broad range of standard products and manufacturing services to customers worldwide.
With more than 40 years’ of operating history, MagnaChip owns a portfolio of approximately 2,950 registered patents and pending applications, and has extensive engineering, design and manufacturing process expertise.
