Multiple-display mobile handsets and tablet PC's are being designed to function with the dual-display desktop model in mind. Content is regularly shuffled between different physical displays that function as a single larger display, with no specific tasks assigned or limiting the functionality of each display. A handset that unfolds, with displays on each side of the ‘fold,' creates an extended effective display size. This type of product provides easier application multi-tasking, larger screens for video and mobile television viewing, and other advantages for the user without the prohibitive size of a larger products such e-readers and tablet computers, where additional display area increases functionality of the device without appreciably enlarging device size.
QuickLogic's RGB-Split PSB provides system designers a quick and easy method of dividing a video stream into multiple screens. RGB-Split accepts a master incoming video stream and partitions it into two or more separate video signals which are routed to different displays in the host system perfectly synchronized, without the need for host system timing control.
RGB-Split is well-suited for multiple display handsets, tablet computers, and other consumer devices where data and video is shared between displays. RGB-Split technology is available as a QuickLogic Proven System Block (PSB) option in the ArcticLink® II VX solution platform families of product.
