Reference Designs Address Growing Smartphone and Accessory Markets

Lattice_MediaTek-GraphicLattice Semiconductor Corporation the leading provider of customizable smart connectivity solutions, and MediaTek  announced the joint release of power-efficient reference designs that drive 4K UHD over a USB Type-C connector. Lattice’s USB Type-C port controllers and MHL® transceivers can easily be paired with MediaTek’s Helio™ X20, the world’s first mobile processor with Tri-Cluster™ CPU architecture and ten processing cores (Deca-core). These solutions highlight Lattice and MediaTek’s continued collaboration to deliver next-generation, low power video reference designs specifically for the growing 4K UHD market.

Consumers want to lengthen the battery lives of their smartphones and other mobile devices, so delivering high performance features with low power consumption is critical. For smartphones, Lattice’s SiI8348 MHL transmitter is used to seamlessly connect to MediaTek’s Helio X20 to drive 4K video, while the SiI7033 port controller sets up MHL Alt Mode on USB Type-C as well as Power Data Objects (PDOs) required to quickly charge the phone. The SiI7033 port controller also integrates the required switches to support simultaneous MHL and USB3.1 connectivity over the reversible Type-C connector. For docks and accessories, Lattice’s SiI7013 and the SiI9396 port controllers are used to establish MHL Alt Mode and convert MHL to HDMI transmission respectively to connect to the billions of displays worldwide.
