Solomon Systech Launches SSD1317 For Wearable Applications

Adding New Member to its Market-Leading PMOLED Family

(Hong Kong – 6 July, 2015) Solomon Systech Limited, a world leader in passive matrix OLED (PMOLED) display driver technology, announced the expansion of her PMOLED driver family with a new product, SSD1317, which targets the rapidly growing wearables market.


The wearables market has been expanding exponentially in recent years, with increasing demand for wearables of larger display size, and higher resolution, DPI and brightness. In addition, wearables design houses and brand owners are putting more emphasis on product aesthetics, leaving shrinking space for the increasing amount of electronic components, which leads to the trend of component miniaturization.


“World’s Smallest” SEG-COM-SEG Orientation PMOLED Display Driver IC Supporting 128×96 Resolution

SSD1317 is specially designed to cater to these trends. It is the world’s smallest SEG-COM-SEG orientation PMOLED Display Driver IC to support high brightness PMOLED mono color display with resolution up to 128×96.


Enhancing Display Quality and Sunlight Readability 

Apart from supporting high resolution which allows more content to be displayed on the same panel size, SSD1317 also enhances display quality with an increased DPI. Moreover, this compact-sized SSD1317 supports 600uA segment maximum source current and 80mA common maximum sink current, marking a remarkable advancement of the high brightness PMOLED display technology. PMOLED panels driven by SSD1317 can achieve 1000 cd/m2 brightness, resulting in enhanced sunlight readability.


Proprietary Low Power Display features

Furthermore, SSD1317 has proprietary low power display features to further reduce power consumption at standby display mode, ideal for wearable devices with an “Always-On” display.


All in all, the unique features of SSD1317 make it the ideal display solution for wearable applications, like healthcare and fitness trackers.
