January 16, 2020 Tiera Oliver

Synaptics Incorporated announced that its new TD7850 family of automotive touchscreen products are now sampling and have been selected by global display manufacturers, Tier-1s and OEMs for upcoming vehicle launches. Synaptics’ automotive TDDI solution combines a lower BOM and a simplified supply chain, with integration for display manufacturers. Pioneered by Synaptics, their automotive TDDI solutions merge touch and display technologies into a single chip, while enabling optical performance over conventional touchscreen.

The TD7850 leverages Synaptics’ image IP including their independent white-point feature that adjusts color hues (RGBCMY) and white points independent of each other. The display panel color matching feature adjusts color hues to identically match across displays within the same vehicle, as well as across vehicles and models so OEMs deliver a consistent user experience. Synaptics-enabled displays deliver color tones across the entire display.

Synaptics automotive TDDI also ensures electromagnetic compliance (EMC) performance in the automotive in-cabin environment with compliance in ISO11452 (EMC Susceptibility) and CISPR25 (EMC emissions).

TD7850 Key Features:

  • Touch controller and display driver integration on single-die (TDDI) 
  • Supports a-Si (single and dual gate) and IGZO (1 and 2 MUX) for up to 15-inch displays 
  • Features for Automotive Safety Integrity Level (ASIL) compliance 
  • AEC-Q100 Grade 2 and IAFT16949 compliant 
  • ISO11452 (EMC Susceptibility) and CISPR25 (EMC emissions) compliant
