What is the Display IC chip?

History

Hello everyone,

Everything is in the title of the question.

What is the Display IC chip?

Is this the chip that handles the display panel. Or it does a different function?

Thank you in advance for your replies.

I thinks that it is part of the System on Chip Samsung S5L8900 as outlined here and further explained on here

"cpu-version" => 0x0

"AAPL,phandle" => 0x402310

as well as a PowerVR MBX 3D graphics processor:

"device_type" => 0x78626D

"clock-ids" => 0x2

"reg" => (8) "\x00\x00\x00\x03\x00\x00\x00\x01"

"name" => 0x78626D

"interrupts" => 0xC

"AAPL,phandle" => 0x40C570

check further here and on here

This info from here

Paired with this CPU is a PowerVR MBX-Lite GPU core. This GPU, like the CPU, is built on a 90nm process and is quite simple. The GPU does support hardware transform and lighting but it’s fully fixed function, think of it as a DirectX 6/7 class GPU (Riva TNT2/GeForce 256).

Hope this provides you with the information you needed.
