COG – Chip on Glass

An LCD driver chip mounted directly onto the display glass.

This method of packaging cuts the amount of layers on the PCB and therefore reduces the board complexity and size.COG reduces the overall system cost but requires close co-ordination between LCD design and IC module manufacturer.
