Programmable VCOM Calibrator with EEPROM and Output Buffer

Product Status: Mass Production


The ISL24211 is an 8-bit programmable current sink that can be used in conjunction with an external voltage divider to generate a voltage source (VCOM ) positioned between the analog supply voltage and ground. The current sink's full-scale range is controlled by an external resistor, RSET . With the appropriate choice of external resistors R1 and R2 , the VCOM voltage range can be controlled between any arbitrary voltage range. The ISL24211 has an 8-bit data register and 8-bit EEPROM for storing both a volatile and a permanent value for its output, with an I2 C interface to read and write to the register and EEPROM. After the part is programmed, the I2 C interface is no longer needed; on power-up the EEPROM contents are automatically transferred to the data register, and the
pre-programmed output voltage appears on the VCOM_OUT pin.

The ISL24211 also features an integrated, wide-bandwidth, high output drive buffer amplifier that can directly drive the VCOM input of an LCD panel.

The ISL24211 is available in an 10 Ld 3mm x 3mm TDFN package. This package has a maximum height of 0.8mm for very low profile designs. The ambient operating temperature range is -40°C to +85°C.
