SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Analogix Semiconductor, Inc., today announced that it has now shipped more than 500 million DisplayPort™ devices into the consumer electronics market. This important milestone underscores Analogix’s leadership in DisplayPort technology, which enables PCs, tablets and smart phones to connect with the latest high-resolution TVs, projectors and monitors.

Analogix supplies a wide variety of DisplayPort digital media chips and IP cores, as well as full custom application-specific chips, to many of the world’s leading electronics brands, which use them primarily in internal display controllers and external connector ports. Analogix is the leading supplier of DisplayPort semiconductors for phones, tablets and PCs.

Kewei Yang, Analogix Semiconductor’s chairman and CEO said the industry’s growing acceptance of DisplayPort technology has been a major reason for his company’s sustained sales and profit growth in recent years. “The adoption of DisplayPort for both internal and external screen connectivity, in particular, is exceeding our expectations,” he said. Increasing demand for SlimPort®-enabled smartphones, tablets, notebooks and other mobile devices is also fueling the company’s growth, Yang noted.

Analogix’s high-speed, ultra-low power SlimPort interface solution based on the DisplayPort standard, allows users to share content from their mobile devices on external displays with theater-quality Full-HD resolution, 3D graphics and audio. In recent months numerous manufacturers – including Google, LG, ASUS, HP and ZTE – have introduced SlimPort-enabled products in a variety of form factors, using multiple system processors and operating systems. Adding further momentum to the expanding SlimPort ecosystem are accessory manufacturers, including Accell, who are rolling out an assortment of cables and adaptors to connect SlimPort-enabled devices to HDTVs, projectors and monitors.

“We are delighted with the traction SlimPort is gaining among leading OEMs, who’ve chosen to include our technology in all types of devices, ranging from Android smartphones and tablets to Windows-based tables and Chrome notebooks,” said Matt Ready, vice president of Sales for Analogix.

A third significant growth driver for Analogix, he said, are the company’s low-power, high-speed LCD timing controllers (TCONs). Analogix TCONs are driving the screens of the highest resolution, Intel-enabled, ultrabooks and tablets. The company expects to ship twice as many TCON units this year as in 2012.
