Magnachip Begins Mass Production of 120HZ HFR OLDEN DDIC
February 19, 2021
Magnachip Semiconductor announced it has begun full-scale mass production of its first 120Hz High Frame Rate (HFR) OLED display driver IC (DDIC) for QHD flexible displays.
The frame rate, meaning the number of images/frames displayed on a screen per second, results in enhanced image quality. The OLDEN DDIC, which supports 120Hz HFR for QHD display, is optimized for 5G smartphones.
Further, it’s designed for 1440 x 3360 resolution screens.
In addition to the HFR feature, it utilizes what the company calls the most advanced 28nm process technology in the pure-play foundry industry.
According to Omdia, a market research firm, global 5G smartphone shipments reached 220 million units in 2020 and would grow five-fold to 1.15 million units by 2023, a factor as to why Magnachip is diving into this sector.
