Seiko Epson and Tokyo-based Renesas Technology Corp. have agreed to jointly develop open-standard specifications for a high-speed interface optimized for the display requirements of next-generation mobile applications.

The two companies will develop a new interface, to be called "Mobile VideoInterface," and work together to accelerate its market dissemination. The interface will support full duplex transmission, which is expected to enable high-speed, two-way transmissions between devices. The maximum data transfer rate will be 200Mbps per channel in both directions.

In addition, the standard will establish a fixed host-target relationship between devices. According to Renesas, since the "Mobile Video Interface" circuit on the target side will receive a clock signal from the host side, there will be no need for a Phased Locked Loop (PLL) to synchronize output signals and frequencies with input signals and base frequencies.
