Computex 2015 - Analogix always has something to impress me wherever we are, but it was their various demos and prototypes of USB Type-C products that had me impressed at Computex this year.


The company was showing off its new chips in the ANX7428, ANX7816+, ANX7418 and ANX7688 which provide DisplayPort, USB 3.0 and Power Delivery all over the same, tiny little cable. That tiny little cable we mentioned, is thanks to a tiny little chip, which is pictured above.


Analogix was showing off the Apple MacBook Air, which will see future cables using their technology to output to various other outputs or devices.


Something else that will impress is the Nano Console from Analogix, which plugs into your SlimPort compatible smartphone, and plugs directly into your TV. It comes with a little touch-capable remote that makes using your Android-based smartphone on your TV a breeze. The Nano Console will be entering mass production shortly, with an estimated arrival of sometime next month.
