Toshiba MPDs Help Solve Unique Design Challenges

Mobile peripheral devices (MPD) are chipsets that provide connectivity between a host processor and input/output devices such as a display, a camera, and a keypad in mobile handsets. Today's high-end mobile handsets come equipped with an array of features such as high-resolution display panels (HVGA, VGA, WVGA, qHD, WSVGA, XGA); high camera-pixel resolutions (3, 5, 8, 12 mega pixels) and a full QWERTY keypad. While offering the end user many new capabilities, these designs also come with the added design burden of managing higher data rates, larger data bandwidth with fewer lines, EMI and electrical/mechanical issues.

The MPD family of products supports high-speed serial interfaces such as the Mobile Industry Processor Interface (MIPI*) for display and camera

applications. In addition, the products support legacy parallel connections such as the MIPI Display Pixel Interface (DPI) and the Display Bus Interface (DBI) to enable connectivity to high-resolution displays and cameras while promoting flexibility in mechanical and electrical designs, and flexibility in component selection.

The MPD family of products enables various applications such as video capture, 3D gaming, video conferencing, web browsing, and high-definition content viewing in mobile handsets such as smartphones, PNDs, eBooks, netbooks and smartbooks.
