Panel Timing Controller
The FPD85310 Panel Timing Controller is an integrated
FPD-Link based TFT-LCD timing controller. It resides on the
flat panel display and provides the interface signal routing
and timing control between graphics or video controllers and
a TFT-LCD system. FPD-Link is a low power, low electro-
magnetic interference interface used between this controller
and the host system.
The FPD85310 chip links the panel’s system interface to the
display via a ten wire LVDS data bus. That data is then
routed to the source and gate display drivers. XGA and
SVGA resolutions are supported.
The FPD85310 is programmable via an optional external se-
rial EEPROM. Reserved space in the EEPROM is available
for display identification information. The system can access
the EEPROM to read the display identification data or pro-
gram initialization values used by the FPD85310.
