Keyssa Announces Reference Design Enabling Smartphones to Become Gaming Machines and PCs

Keyssa发布可将智能电话转换为游戏设备和PC的参考设计

Campbell, Calif.  – May 14, 2018 – Keyssa, a leader in high-speed, contactless connectivity, today announced the industry’s first Reference Design for high-speed contactless “Kiss Connectivity” that supports both high-speed data and HD video using a single pair of KSS104M devices targeted for use in the mobile phone, tablets, and gaming segments.

加州硅谷Campbell –  2018年5月14 – 领先的高速、非接触式连接解决方案提供商Keyssa日前宣布:推出业内首款用于高速非接触“Kiss连接”的参考设计,它可用同一对KSS104M器件来支持高速数据和HD视频,目标应用包括移动电话、平板电脑和游戏领域等。

 

“With mobile processors and graphics capable of PC-like performance, smartphones have become our “everything” device,” said Eric Almgren, CEO of Keyssa. “Mobile games, like Fortnite and Honor of Kings, create a whole new form of multi-screen/device play, from small screens to big screens to mobile consoles. Smartphone processors are driving “everywhere” gaming. It’s no wonder Tencent’s mobile gaming revenue surpassed its PC-gaming business in 2017.”

“随着其移动处理器和图形处理功能具备了PC般的性能,智能手机已经成为了我们生活中‘无所不能’的设备,”Keyssa首席执行官Eric Almgren分析到。“诸如堡垒之夜(Fortnite)和王者荣耀等移动游戏创造了一种全新的多屏/设备运行的形式,可以在从小屏到大屏再到移动游戏机等设备上玩乐。智能手机的处理器正在推动‘无所不在’的游戏向前发展,这也就不奇怪腾讯移动游戏业务的销售收入在2017年超过了其PC游戏业务。”

 

“As a result, high-speed data and video are becoming critical to smartphone usage,” continued Almgren, “not only for the 2.6 billion gamers in the world, but also for the workforce interested in productivity. Unfortunately, with the technical limitations of metal Type-C connectors, today’s smartphone designs cannot take full advantage of the increasing processing power and graphics capabilities demanded by today’s users. Keyssa is providing a production-ready reference design to enable this next step in smartphone evolution.”

“其结果是,高速数据和视频正在成为智能手机应用的关键,”Almgren先生接着说。“这不仅是针对全球26亿游戏玩家,而且对于追求产出效率的职业人士也是一样。然而遗憾的是,由于金属Type-C连接器的技术限制,今天的智能手机设计不能充分发挥当今用户要求的、不断提升的处理能力和图形处理功能。Keyssa提供的是一种可以投入生产的参考设计,旨在持智能手机迈出新的演进步伐。”

 

Central to the reference design are Keyssa’s Kiss Connectors: tiny, solid-state connectors that can be safely tucked inside the skin of products and can transmit and receive data at extremely fast data rates, at speeds up to 6Gbps, simply by the devices “touching” each other. Kiss Connectors are designed to run standard protocols, including USB SS, DisplayPort, PCIe, SATA as well as low-speed protocols, with a very small footprint (the KSS104M, is 3mm x 3mm in size). The new contactless solution utilizes the same Keyssa KSS104M Kiss Connectors to switch between USB SuperSpeed data transfer at a data rate of 5 gigabits per second (Gbps), and 1080p/60 uncompressed DisplayPort video at a data rate of 5.4Gbps.

该参考设计的核心是Keyssa的Kiss Connectors连接器,这是一种小型化的、全固态的连接器,可以被安全地植入到产品的外壳之内,且可以以高达6Gbps的极高数据速率来发送和接收数据,而传送过程仅仅是将一台设备去和另一台“轻碰”一下。Kiss Connectors连接器针对承载标准的通信协议而设计,其中包括USB SS、DisplayPort、PCIe、SATA以及低速协议,同时其外形也非常小巧,KSS104M的大小仅为3mmx3mm。这种全新的非接触解决方案采用了同一Keyssa KSS104M Kiss Connectors 连接器,来在以5Gbps速率进行数据传输的USB SuperSpeed协议,以及以5.4Gbps数据速率传送1080p/60帧无压缩DisplayPort视频间进行切换。

 

“Our switchable USB/DP Reference Design is a solution that fulfils on the connectivity promise of a Type-C connector by implementing high-speed data and HD video utilizing the same contactless Kiss Connectors,” said Satish Ganesan, Keyssa’s Chief Product Officer. “This Reference Design highlights the unique capability of our products to implement multiple protocols using the same Keyssa connector, while satisfying demands in high-volume mobile and gaming markets that require small footprint and low power consumption.

“我们的USB/DP可切换参考设计是一种可以完全实现Type-C连接技术承诺的解决方案,它通过使用相同的非接触Kiss Connectors来实现高速数据和HD视频 的传输,”Keyssa首席产品官Satish Ganesan表示。“该参考设计展示出我们的产品具有独有的能力,可用同一Keyssa连接器去实现多协议传输,同时还满足大批量的移动与游戏市场对小型化外形和低功耗的要求。”

 

The Reference Design brings the following benefits:

该项参考设计具有以下优点:

— Secure, point-to-point connection at extremely high frequency (EHF) without wires or metal
connectors, eliminating noise and EMI commonly found in implementations with pogo pins or
Type-C metal connectors

— 可在极高频(EHF)频点上实现不需要线缆或金属连接器的安全、点对点连接,从而消除了常见于
弹簧连接顶针或者Type-C金属连接器中的噪声和电磁干扰(EMI)

— Capable of transmitting USB SS and DisplayPort 1.2 through the same Keyssa devices

— 能够用同一Keyssa器件实现基于USB SS和DisplayPort 1.2协议的传输

— Simple design-in with all required documentation and reference files

— 提供所需的技术文档和参考文件,因而可以很便捷地完成设计

— Easily implemented in combination with wireless power for a complete solution for high-speed
data, HD video, and power without cables

— 可以很方便地与无线充电方案实现组合集成,从而形成不需线缆的高速数据、高速视频和充电完整
解决方案
