The Texas Instruments TFP401A-Q1 device is a TI Panelbus™ flat-panel display product, and is part of a comprehensive family of end-to-end DVI 1.0-compliant solutions. Targeted primarily at desktop LCD monitors and digital projectors, the TFP401A-Q1 device finds applications in any design requiring high-speed digital interface.
The TFP401A-Q1 device supports display resolutions up to 1080p and WUXGA in 24-bit true-color pixel format. It also offers design flexibility to drive one or two pixels per clock, supports TFT or DSTN panels, and provides an option for time-staggered pixel outputs for reduced ground bounce.
PowerPAD advanced packaging technology results in best-of-class power dissipation, footprint, and ultralow ground inductance.
The TFP401A-Q1 combines Panelbus circuit innovation with TIs advanced 0.18-µm EPIC-5™ CMOS process technology, along with TI PowerPAD package technology to achieve a reliable, low-powered, low-noise, high-speed digital interface solution.
(1)The TFP401A-Q1 device incorporates additional circuitry to create a stable HSYNC from DVI transmitters that introduce undesirable jitter on the transmitted HSYNC signal.
(2)The TFP401A-Q1 device has an internal voltage regulator that provides the 1.8-V core power supply from the external 3.3-V supplies.
(3)The Digital Visual Interface Specification, DVI, is an industry standard developed by the Digital Display Working Group (DDWG) for high-speed digital connection to digital displays. The TFP401A-Q1 is compliant with the DVI Specification Rev. 1.0.
