Embedded DisplayPort (eDP) is set to become the primary internal connection for mobile PCs and it will have an over 80% penetration into the mobile PC market by 2014 according to analyst In-Stat. With VGA and LVDS finally facing a phase-out over the next 2 to 4 years, DisplayPort and HDMI will ultimately be the only display interfaces left.

"Samsung Electronics has been shipping eDP-enabled notebook panels since March 2010 and Apple has an entire mobile PC line with external DisplayPort, as well as some models with eDP," says Brian O'Rourke, principal analyst of In-Stat. "There are some problems with eDP. Since the technology is not widely available, the cost is high in comparison to LVDS, but that will diminish over time with greater adoption."

In-Stat says DisplayPort is easy to integrate because it's fully digital. The analyst all high-volume applications will integrate it rapidly. The new DisplayPort 1.2 specification makes significant improvements, including increased data rate, ability to daisy chain multiple displays and the capacity to handle bi-directional USB 2.0 data. Internal DisplayPort (iDP) is expected to begin the process of replacing LVDS in digital televisions in late 2011.

External DisplayPort device shipments will see a CAGR of over 100% from 2009 to 2014.
