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.
Dialog Semiconductor introduced the DA9057 system level power management IC. The DA9057 is a highly integrated power management, audio and user interface controller for multimedia players, portable navigation systems and other handheld devices. The DA9057 features five on-board dc/dc converters that support 24-bit stereo audio headphone playback on a 5mW power budget. The DA9057 combines a flexible power sequencer with a fully programmable filter/mixer engine to support a wide variety of ARM-based multimedia processors.
