Reference design brings DisplayPort over USB-C to mobile devices

Partnering with MediaTek, Analogix has announced the MediaTek Helio X30 and SlimPort ANX7625 reference design which delivers DisplayPort over USB-C video-out on any mobile device.

The two companies announce reference designs seamlessly paring MediaTek’s Helio X30 processor with Analogix’s ANX7625 SlimPort transmitter to provide DisplayPort over USB-C at 4K ultra-HD resolution for smart devices.

The 10-core, Tri-Cluster architecture on TSMC 10nm process, Helio X30 delivers power efficiency, while the ANX7625 SlimPort transmitter offers breakthrough 4K ultra-HD mobile video experiences, says the latter.

The ANX7625 is a single-chip bridge from the MIPI and USB 3.1 interfaces of the application processor to DisplayPort over USB-C. It simultaneously performs 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 reference design will allow smartphone users to connect to a lightweight VR or augmented reality (AR) headset, and watch 360 videos or play 3D games. 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.
