SiliconCore to secure further patents on Common Cathode technology

Having completed the 2.5-year development cycle, the company proceeds with three new systems related to its next-generation of LED drivers. The technologies are said to reduce costs and enhance the performance of Common Cathode powered LED displays.

The first technology is a new SCL8080 LED driver chip, which now powers 640 pixels per chip. The implementation of the new processor will double the scan rate as well as increase manyfold the processing speed and pixel processing per driver, the company said.

Also updated is the precision current pump aimed to improve the performance of LED pixels under conditions of low brightness. According to SiliconCore, the technology compensates for the variations in impedance for each LED pixel thus allowing even light pulse from each pixel.

The company has also unveiled a spread spectrum driver to distribute the LED display’s pixel clock speed over a range of several megahertz. This will eliminate energy spikes and reduce peak electromagnetic interference (EMI) by as much as 20dB, the press release said.

Eric Li, SiliconCore’s CEO and president commented: “To the customer, these new technologies represent a significant LED driver cost reduction per pixel and a dramatic increase in performance. We are rolling out these new Common Cathode architecture enhancements with our Lavender P1.2 cabinet first and shortly thereafter we will incorporate these in our Orchid HD P1.9, our Magnolia P1.5, and our Peony P2.6 cabinets. These exciting developments will assist us in further increasing the resolution of future displays.”
