DALLAS, USA: Syndiant, the leader in high resolution microdisplays for pico projectors, has introduced its SYA1022 display controller ASIC for industry-leading pico projectors using the company’s patented VueG8 LCOS display panels.
The SYA1022 controller offers increased functionality, improved power efficiency and lower production cost in a smaller form factor. Syndiant’s display controller ASIC combines the control and frame buffer in a small 9x9 mm package so no external memory is required.
Additionally, the SYA1022 supports all of Syndiant’s LCOS display panels, from 854x480 pixel Wide-VGA up through and including Syndiant’s industry leading SYL2061 1024x600 pixel Wide SVGA panel. The SYA1022 is ideal for embedding into mobile and handheld devices such as cell phones and laptops.
“We have now begun shipping the SYA1022 as numerous companies have been awaiting samples so they can proceed with reduction of BOM cost and footprint while also improving functionality. Including the frame buffer DRAM with the new controller ASIC provides big savings in cost and footprint as it eliminates the need for external DRAM. At the same time it reduces power,” said Mark Harward, CEO of Syndiant.
Syndiant’s SYA1022 controller ASIC converts video signals into an efficient format used by the company’s field sequential color LCOS display panels. It enables integration into a wide array of pico projection systems due to its high level of programmability and interface flexibility in a small package.
Engineering samples are immediately available with production quantities available in September 2010.
