SiliconCore Takes “BEST OF SHOW” with New Z.A.C.H. Chip

SiliconCore’s new Z.A.C.H. technology picked up Best Of Show at Infocomm 2017 after a great reception from visitors at the show.

The new Z.A.C.H. chip will feature in all SiliconCore products from now to ensure the displays have market leading dynamic range and color reproduction.

The Z.A.C.H. LED Driver Chip at Infocomm 2017 is the result of three years of research and development and stands for Z(Impedance) Adjustment for Color Homogeneity. The technology embedded in the driver chip can accurately detect impedance variation of each LED and apply adjustment compensation. This achieves uniform brightness and homogenous color at especially low brightness levels. This is most evident in pictures with shadows and areas of greatest contrast from light to dark. Combined with SiliconCore’s low power Common Cathode Technology (CCT) , a 4K screen can achieve uniform maximum brightness of over 1,800Nits and minimum brightness under 0.1Nits. The effective dynamic range is over 18,000 to 1 or over 14 bits. Reproduction of color can be achieved beyond rec 2020 color bit depth which is fast becoming the industry standard.
