Analogix Semiconductor, Inc. today announced the SlimPort® NANO?CONSOLE™ USB-C, a mobile-enabled dock with remote for both Android and Windows-powered mobile devices supporting DisplayPort™ over USB-C™.

A simple, plug-and-play solution for streaming digital media, performing home office computing tasks, and playing mobile games, all from a smartphone or tablet, the SlimPort NANO?CONSOLE allows users to:

  • Connect their mobile devices with DisplayPort audio/video-out to any HDMI-enabled display to share their media and apps, as well as connect external storage devices and accessories such as keyboards and mice;
  • Control their smartphone or tablet remotely from anywhere in the room with the user-friendly and efficient Bluetooth-enabled NANO Remote;
  • Charge their mobile device’s battery through its USB Type-C port;

“In 2015 Analogix introduced the first version of the SlimPort NANO?CONSOLE, a breakthrough product linking mobile to TV, and we are now expanding the product line with the NANO?CONSOLE USB-C,” said Andre Bouwer, vice president of marketing for Analogix. “USB-C is being widely adopted in mobile devices, including smartphones, and the video-out function allows your smartphone to become your smart TV or even your PC. The NANO?CONSOLE is the bridge that connects your phone to your TV.”

Devices that have been tested to work with the SlimPort NANO?CONSOLE are listed on www.slimportconnect.com/slimport-supported-devices and this list will be expanded as USB-C devices supporting DisplayPort over USB-C become available.
