Dialog Semiconductor introduced the DA8223 real time 2D to 3D video conversion chip for portable devices. The device is supports 3D capable displays from 3.8″ smartphones up to 10″ tablet PCs. The DA8223 features a parallax barrier screen driver that lets users view 3D content without the need for glasses. The 5x5mm 81-ball UFBGA chip can be mounted on the PCB, between the application processor and 3D display, or on the display module as a chip-on-flex. DA8223 samples will be available early in 2011.
