Analogix Semiconductor’s SlimPort Expands Display Options for Google’s New Nexus 7 Tablets

Built-in Connectors Allow Another Google Device to Display High-Resolution Video, Presentations and Games on HDTVs, Monitors and Projectors

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — July 30, 2013 — Google’s new Nexus 7 tablet displays an array of new features, including a faster processor and a thinner, lighter profile than its predecessor. But one of its most powerful new features is the ability – thanks to its built-in SlimPort® interface – to connect with TVs, projectors and computer monitors to play home videos, give presentations or even function as a mobile gaming system controller.

Manufactured for Google by Taiwan’s ASUSTeK Computer Inc., the new Nexus 7 tablets use Analogix’s SlimPort solution, which allows users to connect and display content from their tablets on any size screen with full-HD theater-quality resolution, 3D graphics and audio. Consumers benefit from SlimPort immediately by:

  • Connecting to an HDTV – and enjoying a full-length movie, sharing pictures and videos.
  • Connecting to a Monitor – and editing a document, spreadsheet or browsing the Internet on a larger screen.
  • Connecting to a Projector – and giving presentations on the go.

SlimPort solutions provide simple plug-and-play connectivity to any display without the need for an extra power cable. Analogix has also designed its SlimPort accessories to draw only minimal power so that consumers get the maximum playback time from mobile batteries, allowing them to share and enjoy their content for extended periods of time. SlimPort accessories also allow optional charging during playback, so that mobile devices effectively never run out of battery life.

“We’re pleased that Google and ASUS selected our SlimPort solution for the new Nexus 7 tablets, in addition to Google’s already popular Nexus 4 smartphone,” said Andre Bouwer, vice president of marketing for Analogix. “The number of SlimPort-enabled products continues to grow as mobile device makers and consumers recognize the advantages of a single high-performance interface that connects to multiple types of displays.”

Analogix Semiconductor is the leading supplier of DisplayPort-compliant semiconductors and IP products used in notebooks, tablets and other mobile devices. The DisplayPort standard is an innovative, packetized digital interface for high-resolution video and audio that was developed by the Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA). Analogix SlimPort products are based on DisplayPort technology.
