Kinetic Technologies Launches High Efficiency LCD Bias Product Family for Smartphone FHD Panels

Sunnyvale, Calif. October 21, 2014 – Kinetic Technologies, a high-performance analog and mixed-signal semiconductor company focused on developing power management solutions for computing, consumer, industrial, and communications markets, today introduced the KTD2150 and KTD2151 product families, LCD Bias Supplies for Full HD panels used in Smartphones. The converter۪s input voltage range makes it ideal for single cell Lithium-ion battery-based equipment, including Smartphones and other portable devices.

The KTD2150 and KTD2151 product families represent the latest offering in the System Power product line from Kinetic. Using a single inductor, the dual-output products deliver positive and negative voltages to power the bias voltages needed by the latest generation of FHD panels in Smartphones. KTD2150 boasts high efficiency, up to 90%, achieving a new standard for this product category.  Both KTD2150 and KTD2151 product families offer +/-1% Voltage Output accuracy on their positive and negative outputs.

“With higher resolution displays becoming mainstream in Smartphones, the requirements for LCD Bias are become more demanding,” said Erik Ogren, Director of Marketing at Kinetic Technologies. “High accuracy output voltage combined with the highest efficiency is critical for these next generation Smartphones.”

KTD2151 offers I2C programmable output voltages between +4.0V~+6.3V and -4.0V~-6.3V in 100mV steps, respectively in the positive and negative outputs.  KTD2150 offers a wider output voltage and higher resolution programming, with +3.2V~+6.4V and -3.2V~-6.4V in 12.5mV steps.  KTD2150 offers additional features including programmable headroom settings for increased efficiency, up to 90%, and it can be programmed to disable I2C inputs which achieves less than 1uA shutdown current.

Each of the devices are available in a 2.2mm x 1.45mm x 0.62mm 15-pin WLCSP package. The devices are rated over the -40 degree C to +85 degree C temperature range.

Key Features of KTD2150 and KTD2151

  • Dual Output Converter uses only one inductor
  • High accuracy output voltage: +/-1%
  • High Efficiency Converter: up to 90%
  • KTD2150 Zero current shutdown mode programmable through I2C
