Analogix chip-set helps enable AR/VR
Analogix is to sample in Q4, its ANX7440/30 family, the first integrated solution capable of switching DisplayPort version 1.3 and 1.4 at 8.1 gigabits per second (Gbps), as well as USB 3.1 Generation 2 (Gen2) 10 Gbps signals to support a single USB-C port
The family includes:
ANX7440 – integrated 10 Gbps re-timer and USB-C switch for DisplayPort over USB-C ports;
ANX7430 – integrated 10 Gbps re-timer and USB-C switch for USB 3.1 Gen2 USB-C ports.
Integrated USB 3.1 re-timer, DisplayPort HBR3 re-timer, 6×4 10 Gbps mux, and SBU/AUX mux for USB-C DisplayPort Alt Mode applications;
Loss compensation to recover up to 23dB channel loss for USB 3.1 Gen2 10 Gbps and up to 20dB channel loss for DisplayPort HBR3 8.1 Gbps;
It simplifies PCB routing for 10 Gbps notebook, desktop PC, and USB 3.1 enabled mobile device docking station designs.
“DisplayPort over USB-C allows devices to output video resolutions up to 8Kx4K which is one of the key elements in delivering an immersive Virtual Reality (VR) or Augmented Reality (AR) experience,” says Analogix’ Andre Bouwer.
The family is scheduled to ship in volume in Q2 2017.
