SAN JOSE, Calif. – August 28, 2018 – Synaptics Incorporated (NASDAQ: SYNA), the leading developer of human interface solutions, today announced sampling of its new ClearView™ R63455 display driver IC (DDIC) featuring industry-first dual-display 2K resolution combined with unique foveal transport support for next generation virtual reality head-mounted displays (HMDs). In addition, Synaptics’ new VXR7200 VR Bridge solution provides high-speed DisplayPort connectivity supporting full VESA DP1.4 bandwidth over tethered USB Type-C cables required for a best-in-class HMD user experience. Combined, these solutions bring the necessary high-performance visual support for next generation Augmented-, Mixed-, and Virtual-Reality HMDs used for applications including gaming, movies, commercial, medical and beyond.

Analyst firm IHS Markit is predicting the world-wide VR headset installed base to exceed 90 million units by 2021, and Synaptics is well-poised to lead in these critical human interface advancements,” said Huibert Verhoeven, senior vice president and general manager, IoT Division, Synaptics.
