Pericom Semiconductor Corp. has released an electrical Display Port-to-DVI/HDMI bridge and a prototype of its PCIe 2.0 (PCIe "Gen2") ReDriver. The electrical Display Port-to-DVI/HDMI bridge addresses the digital video market for the next generation of high-definition video interfaces in PC displays and DTVs. Display Port (DP) is a license-free digital A/V interconnect standard.

The electrical DP to HDMI/DVI bridge converts four-differential low-swing AC-coupled inputs to HDMI rev 1.3 compliant outputs, and offers HDMI level shifting operation up to 2.5Gbps per lane (required for 36bit Deep Color). Other features include 5V to 3.3V DDC and HPD level shifter and integrated 50 termination resistors for AC coupled differential inputs.

The PCIe Gen 2 ReDriver signal conditioner targets servers, and desktop and notebook PC applications. This ReDriver technology will extend a 5-Gbits/s differential trace pair, minimizing bit error rate and restoring the original signal quality, thereby increasing system performance and reliability, according to Pericom.

Pricing starts at $1.50 per 10,000 pieces for the PI3VDP411LS electrical DP to HDMI/DVI bridge. The PI3VDP411LS electrical Display Port-to-DVI/HDMI bridge is available now and is offered in Pb-free-and-Green packaging. The PCIe Gen2 ReDrivers will be available in mass production in Q1 2008.
