MediaTek and Analogix bring 4K Ultra-HD to mobiles
Analogix has produced reference designs paring MediaTek’s Helio X30 10-core processor with Analogix’s ANX7625 SlimPort transmitter to provide DisplayPort over USB-C at 4K Ultra-HD resolution for smart devices.
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.
“The MediaTek Helio X30 and SlimPort ANX7625 reference design will allow smartphone users to connect to a lightweight VR or AR headset, and watch 360 videos or play 3D games with better user experience,” says Ananlogix’ Andre Bouwer, “ANX7625 also allows concurrent Ultra-HD video and high speed USB data to be output over the USB-C charging port enabling productivity applications such as phone docking stations. When connected to a docking station, a monitor, and a keyboard, the phone will behave just like a PC.”
