Abstract

Methods of reducing overdrive memory using fixed block truncation coding (FBTC) have been studied since 2002, and the effects have been described from time to time. To date, our study has developed a timing controller for liquid crystal panels (TCON), and located in this panel, are a compression feedforward driving (cFFD) unit, which constitutes the basic structure, and a motion adaptive CODEC feedforward driving (macFFD) unit, which switches the structure according to the motion. Both driving units are available for the overdrive of 1/3 compressed images. Further in 2006, we proposed a high compression feedforward driving (hcFFD) algorithm for 1/6 compressed image overdrive. This paper reports the technology of hcFFD integrated into a single LSI, in which the performance has been improved and the circuit has been simplified through a review of the algorithm.
