"Celebrating the milestone of 200 million units underscores our global leadership and further strengthens our commitment to delivering innovative DisplayPort semiconductor and IP products to the world’s leading CE manufacturers."

SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Analogix® Semiconductor, a leading innovator in mixed-signal circuits and IP, with the most complete DisplayPort™ product offering in the market, today announced that it has shipped over 200 million units of DisplayPort semiconductors and IP products to manufacturers including those of notebooks and other mobile devices. The 200-million milestone underscores the industry-wide technology shift to DisplayPort, the royalty-free extensible standard that supports multiple high-resolution video and audio streams over a single cable.

The Analogix DisplayPort product line today includes transmitters, receivers, eDP cores, TCON, and DisplayPort converters that provide connectivity to legacy interfaces such as LVDS, HDMI, VGA. In addition, Analogix has pioneered enhancements to DisplayPort technology including the recent introduction of SlimPort, a product line that enables mobile devices such as smart phones and tablet computers to gain low-cost, zero-power consumption connectivity to any big screen display.

"At Analogix, our sales have been trending the rapid market growth and widespread adoption of DisplayPort connectivity technologies," says Dr. Kewei Yang, Chairman and CEO of Analogix. “Celebrating the milestone of 200 million units underscores our global leadership and further strengthens our commitment to delivering innovative DisplayPort semiconductor and IP products to the world’s leading CE manufacturers.”

With DisplayPort, notebooks and other devices can drive HD display panels directly from the application processor. This eliminates scaling and control circuits required for other connectivity technologies and allows for cheaper and slimmer displays. Available bandwidth can be allocated flexibly between audio and video. Analogix DisplayPort technology is already in use globally, embedded in millions of popular computing and communications products.

“Chances are, if you’ve got a display, you’ve got Analogix,” added Dr. Yang.
