With its innovative idea for a second screen to enable completely new smartphone uses cases, LG was faced with a technical challenge: how to get a 5.4 Gigabits per second DisplayPort signal from the phone to the second screen.
Pogo pins were considered and quickly dismissed; it’s not possible to transmit this much data over pogo pins. A second connector on the side of the phone? That’s certainly a great way to destroy an elegant design. Enter Keyssa’s solid-state connector – embedded in the phone, hidden from sight, but powerful enough to transmit and receive the high-speed video data required to make the dual screen concept a mass market reality.
