A 192-channel data driver IC for plasma display panel has been proposed using bulk-silicon CDMOS (CMOS and DMOS) technology. A novel latch-up protection structure and a novel high-voltage pLDMOS are used in the data driver IC, so as to avoid the latch-up during the system application and to reduce the process cost by more than 10% compared with the conventional one. The power consumption of the presented data driver IC with a novel level-shift circuit was reduced by >20% compared with the conventional one. The rise and the fall times of the output stage are ~80 and 104 ns, respectively.
