SAN JOSE, Calif., July 20, 2010 – Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (IDT®; NASDAQ: IDTI), a leading provider of essential mixed signal semiconductor solutions that enrich the digital media experience, today announced the development of the industry’s first embedded DisplayPort®-based timing controller (TCON) to support 3-D resolution in notebooks that use a Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) monitor. The new IDT eDP 3-D TCON brings the 3-D viewing experience into the portable realm, allowing gamers and video enthusiasts to enjoy the 3-D experience on the go.
In addition, the IDT eDP 3-D TCON integrates a backlight LED driver to improve the image quality on the notebook display. By integrating the LED driver, the new IDT eDP 3-D TCON helps reduce power consumption, which extends battery life. It also provides designers with increased flexibility and reduced component count, helping reduce bill of materials and decrease time to market for notebook providers.
“This is another astonishing milestone for IDT as it further validates DisplayPort as a versatile, high-performance interface for the next generation of displays. This new development confirms the IDT commitment to providing our customers with innovative solutions that take advantage of the many benefits of DisplayPort,” said Ji Park, vice president and general manager of the Video and Display Operation at IDT. “Gamers and video enthusiasts will now be able to enjoy the ultimate 3-D experience wherever and whenever they wish right on their notebook.”
