Block Diagram - 3D Active Shutter Glasses
PSoC programmable analog & digital resources integrate everything shown in light blue below. Click on the colored blocks to view or sample the recommended PSoC Components.


The flexibility of PSoC allows you to customize each colored block, or PSoC Component, to meet your design requirements through the easy-to-use PSoC Creator Software IDE.  These Components are available as pre-built, pre-characterized IP elements in PSoC Creator.

Design Considerations
3D active shutter glasses are used to view 3D images on TVs, displays, and projectors. 3D glasses require a precision analog front end (AFE) for signal gain, noise filtering, and automatic gain control. They use liquid crystal shutters requiring voltages from 10V-20V source depending on manufacturer. The glasses will be run with either a coin cell or rechargeable batteries. USB interface to the glasses can be used for recharging and as a communication interface. Mechanical or CapSense switches can be implemented as the user interface.

PSoC® 1 and PSoC 3 enable a scalable solution that integrates the precision analog front end (AFE), shutter drive, battery charging and monitoring, and user interface into a single chip. The flexible analog architecture also allows designers to create a programmable solution for universal glasses. PSoC also enables feature innovation with CapSense buttons and proximity sensing, as well as USB connectivity.
