                      Hitachi Releases Four-level Grayscale Graphics LCD Controller/Driver Providing 168 x 132-Dot LCD Screen Display with One Chip

                      - The most suitable for digital portable phones, etc., with a simple Internet browser function -

                      Hitachi, Ltd. (TSE: 6501) today announced the HD66752 LCD controller/driver for four-
                      level grayscale graphics display*1 LCD controller/driver, providing single-chip drive for large 
                      display screen size of 168 x 132 dots, for LCD displays in mobile communication products 
                      such as digital portable phones equipped with a simple browser.  Sample shipments will 
                      begin in September 1999 in Japan.
                      
                      The HD66752 provides four-level grayscale drive of monochrome LCD panels of up to 168 x 
                      132 dots (either wide or tall format) with a single chip, enabling it to handle information 
                      distribution services, including e-mail and Internet WWW contents, on portable 
                      communication terminals.
                      
                      Digital portable phones are becoming widely used not only as voice terminals, but also as data 
                      communication terminals handling information distribution services such as e-mail and WWW 
                      contents.  There is consequently a need for the small LCD panels on these devices to be able 
                      to handle graphic display with grayscales, such as GIF*2, in addition to conventional text-
                      based displays such as phone numbers and kanji messages.  Achieving this capability also 
                      requires a larger screen size.
                      
                      Hitachi has previously released the HD66741 (128 x 80-dot monochrome display) and 
                      HD66750/751 (128 x 128-dot four-level grayscale display) for the LCD displays on mobile 
                      communication terminals.  The lineup is now being extended with the release of the 
                      HD66752 (168 x 132-dot four-level grayscale display), incorporating power supply circuit 
                      -a 7x step-up circuit to achieve a low system power supply voltage- on a single chip.
                      
                      In case of using a 12 x 12-dot kanji font, the new HD66752 can display up to 154 characters 
                      (14 lines x 11 characters), and also allows screen rotation through 90degrees for an 11 lines x 14 
                      characters display, enabling it to easily handle information distribution services such as e-mail 
                      and WWW contents.
                      
                      In addition, the four-level grayscale display capability enables a wide variety of graphic 
                      displays to be implemented, and bit operation functions*3 are also provided for smooth 
                      processing of large size of data to support larger screen sizes and grayscale data, making it 
                      possible to greatly reduce the graphics processing load by the microcomputer software.
                      
                      Larger screen sizes generally need a higher LCD drive voltage and mean a lower display 
                      quality, and increased current dissipation. but the HD66752 cope with below functions.
                      
                      It is necessary minimum 15V for the LCD drive voltage in case of 168 x132-dot display size. 
                      The HD66752 incorporate the on-chip step-up circuit can generate an LCD drive voltage up 
                      to seven times that of the system power supply voltage, enabling an LCD drive voltage of 
                      approximately 15.4 V to be attained from a 2.2 V power supply.
                      
                      The LCD drive voltage generation op-amp and step-up circuit drive current can be controlled 
                      by software, allowing current dissipation to be minimized while maintaining display quality.  
                      The drive method used is the C-pattern LCD drive method used in large LCD display systems.   
                      With this method, alternating drive is performed in units of several LCD lines, and the 
                      alternation frequencies of the illuminated and non-illuminated parts of the LCD display are 
                      made uniform, reducing the crosstalk noise due to contrast fluctuations associated with 
                      alternation frequency deviation.
                      
                      To reduce current dissipation, a partial display function is provided that enables only a part of 
                      the screen display area to be driven.  The upper and lower display areas can be driven 
                      independently, enabling display to be performed with a lower LCD drive duty*4.  
                      For example, when displaying five lines for icons at the top of the screen and 19 lines for 
                      message in the center, both displays can be driven at a duty of 1/24.
                      
                      Supported mounting methods are COF*5 mounting, in which the device is mounted face-
                      down on a flexible film substrate, and TCP*6 mounting, in which the device is connected 
                      directly to the LCD glass.
                      
                      Hitachi plans to extend the product lineup in the future with the development of models 
                      capable of handling even larger screen sizes.
                      
                      Notes:	1. Four-level grayscale graphics display: Bit-mapped display RAM is incorporated,  
                      	   and graphics are implemented by controlling four levels independently for each dot.
                      	2. GIF (Graphics Interchange Format): A graphical data format frequently used for 
                        	   WWW contents on the Internet.
                      	3. Bit operation functions: Data processing functions that perform data rewriting and     
                      	   operations in display RAM for individual display dots.
                      	4. LCD drive duty: Ratio of the drive time for a single line on an LCD screen to the 
                                 time for one frame of which the line is a part.
                      	5. COF (Chip On Film): A mounting method in which a chip with a gold bump is 
                                 directly mounted face-down on a flexible film substrate.
                      	6. TCP (Tape Carrier Package): A package in which the chip is mounted on a thin-
                                 film tape.  Ultra-thin type mounting is possible.
