New HP Chromebook uses Analogix SlimPort
Santa Clara, California, October 14, 2013
Analogix Semiconductor, a leading designer and manufacturer of semiconductors for the multimedia market, said that the new HP Chromebook 11 features a built-in SlimPort interface solution.
The solution allows users to connect with HDTVs, monitors and projectors over a single standard mobile USB connector to give presentations or play movies and video games on the big screen, while using very little power, said a statement.
The new HP Chromebook is the first SlimPort-enabled device to use Google’s Chrome operating system, it said. It is also the first to support Samsung’s Exynos family of ARM processors.
“HP Chromebook 11 underscores the versatility of SlimPort, which is now supporting multiple processors, operating systems and product form factors,” said Andre Bouwer, vice president of marketing for Analogix.
“We expect SlimPort to become the de-facto mobile interface solution for display, data and charging over mobile USB connectors.”
SlimPort’s low-power solutions help to extend the battery life of portable devices, and enable their batteries to recharge during playback when plugged into a powered DisplayPort or HDMI display.
The Chromebook is also compatible with SlimPort accessories available including SlimPort to HDMI adapter (SP1003), SlimPort to VGA adapter (SP2003) and SlimPort HDMI/VGA Combo adapter (SP1202). - TradeArabia News Service
