Super In-cell IDC
Super In-cell (SIC) is an innovative technology based on improved self-capacitive sensing technology and supports both a-si and LTPS TFT LCD with excellent touch performances. It has simpler production structure but still realizes multi-finger touch by technology breakthrough. Different from traditional multi-chip solutions, Super In-cell requires only one integrated IC (IDC) to drive both display and touch function which helps to save production cost.
Integrated Driver &Controller IDC requires less IC components and connectors, greatly lowers handset production cost, and builds better competitiveness.
