TranSwitch Corp. has introduced its HDwire video interface solution. The Company's HDwire video interface solution offers the industry's fastest video interface, supporting current and next-generation, HD video displays. The ultra-fast HDwire panel interface ensures reliable, crystal-clear video for the highest available computer and TV display resolutions at low power consumption and low system design cost. TranSwitch is initially offering HDwire as licensable IP cores and plans to offer IC's in the future.


HDwire supports both 4K x 2K and 8K x 4K resolutions.

The current generation of low-voltage differential signaling (LVDS) TV internal interfaces operates at relatively slow speeds and requires cables with a high number of wires to transmit video signals from the video processor to the display panel controller. With the ever increasing size, resolution, refresh rate and color depth of new LCD/LED panels, the number of LVDS cables required is rapidly increasing, thus driving up the cost and complexity of TV's and computer monitors. TranSwitch's HDwire transceiver is designed to support the needs of emerging displays without the need for multiple, expensive cables and connectors.

TranSwitch's new HDwire solution is a fully integrated transceiver that provides up to 12 lanes, with link speeds of 5Gb/s to support both 4K x 2K and 8K x 4K resolutions.
