Globalpress: Analogix connects phones to HDMI displays
Analogix, which specialises in chips which connect mobile devices to displays, has a new product line called SlimPort which will be implemented in mobile phones in Q4 delivering content over HDMI to screens.
Accessories to implement the connection will be sold this month through Amazon and the Analogix site at
www.slimportconnect.com and will cost $25-30.
SlimPort operates to the DisplayPort standard which is implemented on Apple’s Thunderbolt and processors from Intel, Qualcomm, Nvidia and AMD. There is an expectation it will be included on Atom.
At present only about 16% of the panels are DisplayPort-enabled but this is rapidly changing, says Andre Bouwer, vp marketing at Analogix.
The DisplayPort standard allows you to charge the phone while its driving a display.
The applications are, as might be expected, sharing entertainment, giving presentations, gaming.
Analogix fabs its ICs at TSMC and Globalfoundries.
