MWC 2016 - Analogix is a company that never ceases to amaze me, with the announcement of their new SlimPort ANX7688 single-chip mobile transmitter. What makes the new SlimPort ANX7688 so special? Well now.
The SlimPort ANX7688 is capable of driving 4K 60FPS (4096x2160) or 1920x1080 at 120FPS - both from a smartphone or a tablet with full USB-C capabilities. Analogix is forward-thinking with its SlimPort ANX7688 with support and technological capabilities of driving AR and VR technologies, which require much more performance for video processing, and more.
Analogix has created the SlimPort ANX7688 with Qualcomm-based USB-C smartphones and tablets in mind, as it converts the HDMI and USB interfaces to DisplayPort. This is done with Analogix integrating a converter bridge, a high-speed mux, USB-PD support for fast-charging, and the latest HDCP 2.2 content protection. Andre Bouwer, VP of Marketing for Analogix, explains: "ANX7688 puts Analogix years ahead of the competition to enable DisplayPort over USB-C capability on smartphones and tablets".
Bouwer continues: "Besides enabling big screen connectivity, SlimPort video out makes smartphones AR- and VR-ready in anticipation of head mounted displays moving into the mainstream, enabling an ever growing range of experiences for entertainment and productivity".
