MagnaChip surpasses 6M display driver ICs shipped

MagnaChip Semiconductor Corporation (“MagnaChip”) (NYSE:  MX), a Korea-based designer and manufacturer of analog and mixed-signal semiconductor products, today announced that its cumulative shipment of display driver ICs for organic light-emitting diode (OLED) TVs has surpassed the 6 million cumulative unit mark since initial shipments began in 2013.

The OLED Display driver IC is a critical semiconductor component transmitting both digital and analog signals to an OLED panel which in turn creates and displays an image. OLED displays require a significantly higher level of device and panel development technology as well as enhanced manufacturing processes beyond what is required for generic flat panel LCD displays. MagnaChip has been supplying its display driver ICs to top-tier OLED TV makers since 2013 and will continue to enhance its OLED product performance and portfolio of products to address the needs of customers in this expanding market.

Market research firm IHS Inc., has projected that the global OLED TV market will record double-digit unit growth into 2020 and beyond while demand for flat panel LCD TVs will remain flat.
