Abstract

A mobile display system, which includes a self- capacitive type in-cell touch screen panel and a display driver IC, in which the readout circuit is embedded, is developed for reduced cost, improved display performance, and superior touch performance. A touch electrode is implemented with a segmented common electrode of an LCD display. The display system of the in-cell touch panel is 5.7-in a-Si HD (720 × 1280), the number of touch electrodes is 576 (18 × 32), and the sensor pitch is approximately 4 mm. Compared to the display-only system, display performance degradation does not occur in the proposed system since in-cell technology is adopted. Despite using a self-capacitance sensing method in the panel, unlimited multitouch is available by using an all-point sensing scheme; this system shows a touch accuracy of less than 0.2 mm and signal-to-noise ratio is measured to be more than 48 dB in the entire panel without any digital filter. To enhance the touch performance, we proposed noise reduction techniques that are strongly related to the display operation, such as base line compensation, delta adding correlated double sampling, and the use of a high-voltage charge compensator. The power consumption including micro controller unit (MCU) is less than 30 mW.
