Integrated Device Technology Inc. (IDT) has announced the availability of a DisplayPort receiver and timing controller (TCON) device for inclusion in flat-panel displays for monitors, notebooks and LCD TVs. The new IDT DisplayPort-compatible receiver solution, named PanelPort, is slated to be integrated in flat-panel products currently in development.

PanelPort offers OEMs an increased level of digital signal integrity by reducing EMI on all monitor or display device interfaces using IDT spread spectrum clocking technology. It achieves high digital signal integrity due to an in-house customizable Serdes and IDT serial interface and timing technologies. The IDT customized PanelPort solution, which includes an embedded TCON for notebook applications, is designed to improve performance by extending battery life and reducing power consumption through optimal thermal management, thus enabling further differentiation for the flat-panel display market.

"As a significant proportion of display manufacturers are seeking to integrate DisplayPort technology into their products in 2008, we see a large market opportunity for IDT," said Ji Park, VP and general manager of the IDT digital display operation. "IDT ties well into this burgeoning opportunity as it has a rich history in developing products based on its serial interface and timing expertise. We've leveraged that expertise with our existing TCON technology and the result is our PanelPort device. Combined together with our focus on leading emerging standards, IDT is in a great position to add value to our customers in their adoption of the DisplayPort standard. In fact, by taking advantage of our Serdes and spread spectrum clocking technology, we have been able to optimize our PanelPort device to enable our OEM customers to lower EMI on each digital audio/video interconnect interface."

The IDT PanelPort device is fully compliant with the DisplayPort 1.1a standard. Additionally, the device supports full video interface and include security encryption through HDCP1.3. The PanelPort four-lane receiver device is capable of supporting up to WQXGA (2560 x 1600 at 60Hz) display mode for monitor panels as well as two-lane 1920 x 1080 at 60Hz and for notebook panels. The IDT VPP1600EMG PanelPort device supports cabling of 15m for added user flexibility.

The IDT VPP1600EMG PanelPort device is available in a 100-pin TQFP package. The device is priced at $5 in quantities of 10,000.
