New LCD Controller SoC from STMicroelectronics Delivers Best-in-Class Performance for Mainstream DisplayPort Monitors

Highly integrated SoC utilizes ST's Faroudja(R) color-processing technologies for full high-definition monitors

GENEVA, Dec. 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- STMicroelectronics (NYSE: STM), a world leader in consumer ICs, today announced a new series of single-chip controller ICs that delivers the features and performance previously only found in premium or high-end monitors, including advanced 12-bit color-processing capabilities, enhanced color fidelity, DisplayPort connectivity and industry-leading ultra-low power consumption when the monitor is in standby mode.

Designed for full high-definition and WUXGA-standard (1920 x 1200 pixel) multimedia monitors, the new STDP6000 series has already gained several design wins with leading monitor makers and enables customers to select one or all of its features to introduce highly differentiated monitors with best-in-class viewing experiences at mainstream consumer price points.

The STDP6000 accepts a wide range of digital inputs including DisplayPort, HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface), and DVI (Digital Video Interface), and also supports VGA inputs for connectivity to legacy analog sources. DisplayPort, which is rapidly gaining momentum as the preferred digital interface in notebook and monitor applications, is the open digital-interface standard for displays developed by VESA (Video Electronics Standards Association). The technology enables high-bandwidth audio-video signal transmission using fewer signal lines than conventional display interfaces used in multimedia-monitor applications. The STDP6000's DisplayPort Receiver has passed the VESA Compliance Test.

The STDP6000 also integrates an HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection) key for secured audio-video data transmission, thereby streamlining customers' production flow and reducing cost. The STDP6000 ensures the high picture quality usually found in professional-grade workstation monitors by implementing ST's world-class Faroudja RealColor(R) technology, which offers image enhancement, deep color support, and enhanced wide-gamut-panel support with improved color fidelity.

In addition, OEMs and end users can easily upgrade their monitor software without factory recall or on-site technical support via ST's Smart ISP (In-System Programming) technology. The STDP6000 is available in volume production in a 128-pin TQFP package.
