THine Electronics, Inc. (JASDAQ:6769), the global leader in high-speed
serial interface and provider of mixed-signal LSI, today announced that
THine licenses its new LCD driver interface technology, eDriCon, to
Panasonic Corporation Semiconductor Business Division. Through licensed
THine's eDriCon, Panasonic's LCD driver ICs and THine's timing
controllers (TCON) can support advanced automotive infotainment and
navigation systems with full-HD resolution.
Panasonic delivers value added LCD driver ICs with high-quality to
automotive markets. THine has led high-speed interface technology,
especially in consumer electronics markets such as 4Kx2K televisions,
delivering de facto standard V-by-One® HS. THine has
developed eDriCon, using its know-how in TCON technology.
THine's eDriCon has a high-speed of 1.2 Gbps for automotive application,
reforming V-by-One® technology. It has a clock data recovery

lowering system cost and space for cables. Through obtaining the
license of eDriCon, Panasonic's LCD driver ICs enable to support
automotive navigation systems with higher-resolution.
