Virtual/augmented reality headset and glasses

Virtual / Augmented Reality Headsets & Glasses system design resources and block diagram


Our integrated circuits and reference designs help you create lightweight, reliable augmented/virtual reality headsets that receive high-quality audio and video data from a main controller unit for playback into headphones and high-resolution displays worn like glasses, creating an immersive user experience.

Modern VR/AR headsets and glasses often require:

  • More efficient power and battery management with ultra-low standby for longer battery life
  • High-fidelity graphics and sound enabled by high-contrast, high-frame-rate TI DLP® displays, or LCD or OLED displays, paired with Class-D amplifiers
  • Light sensors to maximize viewing quality, as well as haptics and LED drivers to enhance the user experience
