Ultra-portable displays


Thursday, May 01, 2014: In March 2014, STMicroelectronics launched the UFDFPN5 devices—ultra-portable displays with I2C serial EEPROMs, measuring just 1.4 mm x 1.7 mm. The low-profile UFDFPN5 package, also known as MLP5, is easy to integrate with standard production processes, is 40 per cent smaller than UFDFPN8 (until now the smallest package size in widespread use), and weighs 56 per cent less at only 7 mg. Ideal for building ultra-small and lightweight LCD modules in next-generation notebooks and tablets, the new EEPROM package starts with the M24C16-FMH6TG. This 16Kbit device is compatible with 400 kHz and 100 kHz I2C-bus modes, has a maximum byte or page write time of 5 ms, and draws a very low current of 1mA in read or write mode and 1µA in standby. 32Kbit, 64Kbit and 128Kbit variants supporting I2C will be launched later in 2014.
