Analogix Semiconductor has announced the sampling of ANX9801 DisplayPort transmitter, said to be the industry's first functional DisplayPort and legacy DVI IC. The device is based on the standard backed by the Display Systems Committee of the Video Electronics Standards Association.

The new DisplayPort transmitter targets PC graphics adapter boards and provides the benefits of deep color and WQXGA resolution, said Analogix. It also includes a single link DVI + HDCP transmitter circuit, thereby offering legacy digital interface support that enables output to an HDMI display as well. The company said its entire DisplayPort product line and IP cores aim to reduce development costs and BOM for customers.

"DisplayPort leverages technologies implemented in bit-serial communications to reduce cost and increase bandwidth limitations for advanced displays," said Bill Eichen, president and COO of Analogix. "We are enthusiastic about the support and interest expressed by DisplayPort industry leaders in our product line."

List pricing for the ANX9801 is $3.25 each in 10,000-unit volumes. In addition to ANX9801, Analogix also announced it will begin sampling the ANX9811 DisplayPort receiver ICs in Q4 2006, and a family of related DisplayPort devices in Q1 2007.
