SiliconCore will debut its Z.A.C.H. LED Driver Chip at Infocomm 2017, the result of three years of research and development, giving its displays market leading dynamic range and color reproduction.
Z.A.C.H., the latest technology invention from SiliconCore stands for Z(Impedance) Adjustment for Color Homogeneity. The technology embedded in the driver chip can accurately detect impedance variations of each LED and apply an adjustment compensation. This achieves uniform brightness and homogenous color at especially low brightness levels.
Showcased as a 4K 1.2mm LED Display at Infocomm, the Z.A.C.H. LED Driver enabled SiliconCore display, already the brightest in the industry, provides accurate color reproduction in the areas of low brightness. This is most evident in pictures with shadows and areas of greatest contrast from light to dark. Combined with SiliconCore’s low power Common Cathode Technology (CCT) a 4K screen with the Z.A.C.H. LED driver can achieve uniform maximum brightness of over 1,800 Nits and minimum brightness under 0.1Nits. The effective dynamic range is over 18,000 to 1 or over 14 bits. Reproduction of color can be achieved way beyond rec .2020 color bit depth which is fast becoming an industry standard.
SiliconCore Lavender 1.2mm, Magnolia 1.5 and Camellia 0.95 will be the first displays to ship with the new Z.A.C.H. LED drivers in July . This technology will be ideal for cinema, command and control and simulation environments thanks to the incredible high dynamic range and color fidelity of the display. Corporate and retail clients will notice a difference in areas of greatest contrast.
Eric Li, CEO of SiliconCore explains:
“LED has two natural characteristics that can make LED displays far superior than any other display technology, one is high energy efficiency and the other is fast response time. Our Common Cathode technology preserves the energy efficiency advantage and today this latest invention of Z.A.C.H. preserves the response time advantage. SiliconCore’s electronic design team has integrated all these technologies into an LED driver design which preserves these natural characteristics, resulting in energy efficiency, rapid response time and being able to maintain incredible color over a long lifetime.”
“This new chip is a breakthrough for LED Displays, producing fully immersive picture quality for simulation and highly detailed image applications.”
