SAN JOSE, USA: Integrated Device Technology Inc. (IDT), the Analog and Digital company delivering essential mixed-signal semiconductor solutions, announced that it will be showcasing its innovative portfolio of video, audio, capacitive touch, and mixed signal Intelligent System Power Management solutions at the 2011 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) at the Las Vegas Convention Center on January 6-9, 2011.
IDT will be demonstrating a variety of products targeted at the consumer electronics market, including award winning devices from its HQV video processing, DisplayPort multi-monitor, PureTouch capacitive touch controller, audio, and PowerSmart power management families.
“With a strategic focus on consumer, communications, and computing markets, CES is an ideal venue to showcase the innovative developments taking place at IDT. The addition of analog and power management expertise has allowed us to build upon our existing portfolio and broaden our product offerings,” said Dr. Ted Tewksbury, president and CEO at IDT.
“We will have a number of industry firsts on display, such as the first single-chip power management and timing controller solution for thin film transistor (TFT) Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) panels, the first motion-compensated frame rate conversion processors with an integrated resolution-enhancement engine for use in 120Hz and 240Hz televisions and high-definition video projectors, and the world’s first single-layer multi-touch projected capacitive touch screen technology announced earlier this month.”
Along with HQV video processing, timing controller, and re-timer products for Smart TV and 3D displays, IDT will exhibit the world’s first DisplayPort-based device to enable the user to connect up to four monitors to a single DisplayPort connection and support vertical image formats. The IDT VMM1400 complements the comprehensive offerings in IDT’s DisplayPort portfolio.
Also on display will be the IDTP95020 highly integrated microcontroller-based Intelligent System Power Management Solution and the Environmental Noise Cancellation demo for improvement of voice audio transmission quality in noisy environments.
The IDT capacitive touch button controllers will be exhibited alongside the world’s first true single-layer multi-touch projected capacitive touch screen technology. The touch button solutions are capable of detecting up to twenty simultaneous touches, and the LDS6200 family of controllers includes built-in proximity sensing and power-on touch detection features to recognize touch events already present at power on — a critical capability enabling many consumer devices to enter diagnostic modes.
The single-layer touch screen technology increases light transmittance, streamlines the manufacturing process, and lowers the overall solution cost, all while maintaining competitive performance specifications and multi-touch capability.
