A display bridge solution has been integrated into the new Samsung Galaxy Beam 2 to allow for the embedding of a pico projector.

QuickLogic's ArcticLink III BX6 display bridge solution provides a display bridging functionality that allows people to make use of the phone's embedded pico projector. Specifically, the solution allows the single display interface signal linked to the phone’s applications processor to be both duplicated and bridged.

This means that it is able to boost both embedded display and the integrated pico projector, New Electronics reported.

Paul Karazuba, Quicklogic's senior product marketing and media manager, said: “One challenge of embedding pico projectors into smartphones is the lack of processor support for both a display and a pico projector.”

The BX6 allows for the connection of either a two or four lane MIPI processor with a MIPI/RGB, LVDS/RGB or MIPI/LVDS display. Available in six types, the BX6 supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 at 60frame/s, Quicklogic - which specialises in low-power Customer Specific Standard Products - confirmed.

The display bridge solution is supplied in a WLCSP which measures 4.5 x 4.5mm, the publication reported.
