Kitchen appliances such as IH cooker, rice cooker, water purifier, coffee maker and bread machine are exposed to liquid contaminant and used in difficult environment of high temperature, humidity, and electrical noise where semiconductor products are hard to endure. ABOV’s mass products passing reliability tests consist of MCUs and ASICs that guarantee stable operation in the application of kitchen appliances.

Application Description
Driver MCU Driver MCU is a display driver IC indicating letters or images on the display devices such as LCD/LED/VFD. Able to support both segment type and dot type with brightness modulation. Driver IC supports not only display control but also additional function such as key input.
Touch IC By replacing former physical switches, Touch Key Sensor does not only enhance the product exterior design but also prevent the influx of external contaminants and reduce manufacturing cost and damage caused by physical impact (pressure) or long-term use.
User Interface Controller User Interface Controller for Kitchen Appliances functions as user interface by recognizing Local Key and Remocon Signal and delivering control status to Display Driver IC. Received user control signal is delivered to main controller and information and status controlled in the main controller is displayed on output device of Front Unit Controller. It also functions of connection with and control of input/output device.
