Analogix Semiconductor, Inc. today announced its ANX2187, the industry’s lowest power Ultra HD (UHD) embedded DisplayPort™ 1.4b (eDP) timing controller (TCON) with 3D color gamut rotation in the optical domain, panel self-refresh (PSR) and selective update (PSR2), VESA DisplayHDR™ 1000 support, and in-cell finger and active stylus touch for notebook PCs with graphics display resolution up to 3840×2400.
The ANX2187 is the only notebook TCON with built in 3D color gamut rotation in the optical domain, solving the problem of color matching between different display panels, as well as the challenge of low blue light displays while still retaining color accuracy for the other colors, and addressing the topic of standard dynamic range (SDR) and high dynamic range (HDR) both needing color conversion.
In the same time, the ANX2187 leverages Analogix’s technology leadership in low-power processes and reduces UHD 60Hz power consumption to 216 – 286mW using 28nm process technology, the smallest UHD notebook TCON package to date.
“The ANX2187 brings together our capabilities in low-power design, silicon process leadership, in-cell touch, color management, and high-dynamic-range (HDR) technology essential for high resolution notebooks, where high-performance hardware, color accuracy, color space and HDR are key requirements,” said Michael Ching, vice president of marketing for Analogix.
The ANX2187 is in mass production. Product demonstrations are taking place during this week’s CES® 2020, at Analogix Exhibitor Suite 30-136 in The Venetian, Las Vegas.
