Analogix Semiconductor, Inc. Key Developments

Analogix Semiconductor, Inc. Introduces ANX7447 Family of USB-C Single-Chip Port Controllers With Power Delivery Version 3.0

Analogix Semiconductor, Inc. announced the availability of its SlimPort®ANX7447 family of single-chip USB Power Delivery (PD) version 3.0 port controllers with DisplayPort Alt Mode mux, enabling the latest USB-C™ charging technology for next generation notebooks, desktops, and 2-in-1 PCs. Highly-integrated, the ultra-low power ANX7447 is designed as a companion to various CPUs and Application Processors (APs) and offers comprehensive functionality: Extended Messaging - enables faster PD firmware updates (PDFU) and provides an efficient exchange of security certificates; Fast Role Swap - allows a PC accessory to change modes from sourcing to sinking power quickly, preventing data corruption during an unforeseen power source disconnect; Native USB-C port controller interface (TCPCI) for ease of integration with the existing USB-C port manager (TCPM); Support for Intel’s Direct Connect Interface (DCI) Closed Chassis Debug; Support for high-speed interfaces, such as USB 3.1 up to Gen 2 10Gbps and DisplayPort™ 1.4 at up to HBR3 8.1Gbps.

Analogix Semiconductor, Inc. Partners with MediaTek to Bring High-Performance Mobile Video

Analogix Semiconductor, Inc. announced the availability of high-performance reference designs seamlessly paring MediaTek’s Helio™ X30 processor with Analogix’s ANX7625SlimPort® transmitter to provide DisplayPort™ over USB-C™ at 4K Ultra-HD resolution for smart devices. The MediaTek Helio X30 is the most powerful addition to the MediaTek Helio family for high-end smartphones. Bringing together MediaTek’s 10-core, Tri-Cluster architecture on TSMC 10nm process, MediaTek Helio X30 delivers power efficiency, sustained high performance, and is an ideal platform for Analogix’s ANX7625 SlimPort transmitter to offer breakthrough 4K Ultra-HD mobile video experiences. The ANX7625 is an ultra-low power, single-chip bridge from the MIPI™ and USB 3.1 interfaces of the application processor to DisplayPort over USB-C, simultaneously performing the necessary USB-C port switching and management. It supports High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) version 2.2/1.4 for secure playback either to a virtual reality (VR) headset, or to a monitor or big screen TV.

Analogix Semiconductor, Inc. Introduces ANX753x/7580 Family of VR/AR Head-Mounted Display Controllers

Analogix Semiconductor, Inc. announced the availability of its SlimPort® ANX753x/7580 family, the first DisplayPort™ to Quad MIPI-DSI display controllers supporting up to 120 frames per second (FPS) and targeted primarily at virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) head-mounted displays (HMD). The product family includes: ANX7530 – mobile receiver supporting 8 MIPI lanes per eye (total 16 lanes), ideal for popular VR panel resolutions including 1920x2160 per eye; ANX7533 – mobile receiver supporting 4 MIPI lanes per eye (total 8 lanes) with display stream compression (DSC), recommended for VR panel resolutions including 1920x1440 per eye. ANX7580 – mobile receiver supporting 8 MIPI lanes applicable to headsets that use a single panel shared between both eyes. It supports panel resolutions including 2560x1600 total. Leveraging Analogix’s long history of products and technology development in low-power, high-speed Serializer/Deserializer (SERDES), the ANX753x/7580 family converts DisplayPort input to MIPI-DSI output offering best in class performance: DisplayPort 1.4 input supporting link frequencies up to 6.75Gbps; HDCP 2.2 and 1.4 high-bandwidth digital content protection support to ensure secure distribution of video content; Adaptive Equalization on its DisplayPort input for best in class signal recovery as required in connected VR HMD applications; and MIPI-DSI 1.2 output supporting link frequencies up to 1.5Gbps, with either 4-lanes or 8-lanes per eye. Widespread adoption of HDCP 2.2 contributes to the growth of the entire video ecosystem by helping content providers to monetize their investments in creating more premium 360 degree and 3D material. The ANX753x/7580 family can be used in USB Type-C™ and non-USB Type-C applications and can manipulate a variety of video scan modes. This gives headset manufacturers the flexibility to differentiate their products by offering the most optimized performance for the markets they serve, whether that is gaming, 360 degree and 3D movies, or AR productivity. The ANX753x/7580 family is sampling in first quarter of 2017 and will ship in mass production in second quarter of 2017.
