The STV8116 is a low-power CMOS
controller/driver “combo” IC for passive OLED
displays featuring extremely low current
Designed to drive displays of up to 132 rows by
162 columns with 262K colors, the STV8116
provides all necessary functions in a single chip,
including an on-chip DC/DC step-up converter
resulting in a minimum of externals components.
This IC provides automatic precharge and
Vrowoff voltages as well as self adjustment of the
Vpp voltage. Global power management is
automatically adjusted to changes in brightness
levels, aging of the display and temperature.
Embedded OTP memory allows various
adjustments and storages such as white balance,
gamma table and frame frequency. These
features contribute to enhanced picture quality,
low power dissipation, improved robustness and
reduced manufacturing cost.
A complete set of digital functions reduces host
microcontroller overhead to manage complex
display configurations and fast moving image data
transfers to the display RAM of the STV8116.
STV8116 features five standard I/O interfaces (3-
wire serial, 3-wire SPI, 4-wire SPI, 68000 parallel
and 8080 parallel) for easy interfacing with the
