New Toshiba 4K Converter Chipset Drives Next-Generation, Dual DSI-Ready LCD Displays For Consumer Electronics And Industrial Applications

Industry-First 4K Chipset Converts HDMI® Signal to MIPI® dual-DSI Interface on Small Form-Factor Ultra HD LCD Displays

SAN JOSE, Calif., May 5, 2014 — (PRNewswire) — Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc. (TAEC)*, a committed leader that collaborates with technology companies to create breakthrough designs, today adds the TC358870XBG Display Serial Interface (DSI) to its family of mobile peripheral IC products.

The TC358870XBG is a 4K High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI®) to MIPI® dual-DSI converter chipset with video format conversion. This is the first and only device in the market that enables direct 4K HDMI video input to LCD displays with MIPI dual-DSI interface, allowing small, form factor high-resolution mobile displays to be used in consumer and industrial applications.1

"The TC358870XBG provides design, performance and cost benefits making it suited for small, mobile consumer electronics and industrial products with high-resolution LCD displays requiring MIPI dual-DSI input," says Deepak Prakash, senior director for the Logic LSI Business Unit, System LSI Group at TAEC. "Application Processors with an HDMI interface used in traditional larger displays can now drive up to 3840 x 2160 display resolution in next-generation small form factor mobile devices including head-mounted displays (HMDs), digital camera displays, hand- held gaming accessories and wearable computing devices."

The TC358870XBG's 297 MHz HDMI input supports up to 3840 x 2160 @ 24bpp at a refresh rate of 30 fps and 2560 x 1600 @ 24bpp at a refresh rate of 60 fps. The device supports common 3D video formats and protocols compatible with the HDMI 1.4 standard. The TC358870XBG supports a MIPI dual DSI interface up to 8Gbps.

The Toshiba TC358870XBG is an 80-pin device for non-HDI boards with a small package size of 7.0 x 7.0 mm, 0.65 mm ball pitch and 1.2 mm maximum height.

Pricing and Availability
Sample pricing for the TC358870XBG device is $5.00 (U.S.). Sample shipments are currently available with mass production scheduled for September, 2014.
