Expanding the company's OLED product portfolio, Solomon Systech has introduced the SSD1360 passive matrix OLED (PMOLED) display driver. Supporting super high brightness OLED displays for both indoor and outdoor applications, the controller is ideal for the new era of Character OLED display in applications such as industrial, power meter, audio and white goods.

The PMOLED display driver supports 2-line display, each line with 16 to 24 characters in 5x8 or 6x8 dots character format, and up to 32 ICON lines. It has a maximum panel resolution of 120x16 for dot matrix displays. Featuring three built-in market standard character ROMs covering ASCII, English, European and Japanese characters, the SSD1360 supports I2C (up to 400kbit/s), 4/8-bit parallel and serial interfaces.

Replacing traditional high brightness character type display modules (e.g. for Vacuum Fluorescent Display (VFD)) which consume significantly more power, the SSD1360 has a unique display driving scheme which enables 600cd/m2 display brightness output at much lower power consumption.

Mr. Raymond Wang, Vice President, Business Operations, Solomon Systec, commented: “With the advancement of OLED technology, most of the major panel makers from China, Japan and Taiwan are ready to use the more cost effective PMOLED display panels to replace VFD. Given the premium display quality of OLED, the compatibility of ROM and command set in SSD1360 with standard VFD display driver controllers in the market, OLED character display modules designed with SSD1360 enables faster time-to-market and is best for VFD direct replacement. Moreover, the power consumption of end applications can be drastically reduced by replacing VFD modules with SSD1360-enabled PMOLED modules. The well experienced design team at Solomon Systech can also custom design characters using SSD1360’s built-in ROM to cater to various applications’ language needs."

The SSD1360 is available now for sampling. Contact Solomon Systec for availability and pricing.
