Integrated Device Technology Inc. announced has launched the PanelPort VMM1300 ViewXpand chip, claimed to be the first VESA DisplayPort-based controller providing complete high-definition (HD) multi-monitor capability without the need for an additional graphics card.

Targeting notebooks, docking stations, standalone dongles or DisplayPort-compatible monitors, the chip drives multiple monitors from a single digital output port for each application, such as gaming, graphics design or spreadsheet analysis. Alternatively, the user can choose to dedicate each monitor to a separate application.

Features include full HD compatibility with no latencies, no system upgrades required, configurable for hub- or daisy-chain modes, support for up to three monitors with automatic detection and resolution adjustment.

It supports HDCP1.3 content protection to play back Blu-ray and DVD movies and according to the company consumes little power, though no specifics were provided on this.

The IDT VMM1300 PanelPort device is available in 148-pin 11mm x 11mm QFN package. The device is priced at $15 in quantities of 10,000.
