The STiDP888 and STiDP880 allegedly form the industry's first bridge chipset for the proposed iDP standard to LVDS translation for use in next-generation LCD TVs. The iDP-to-LVDS chipset includes an iDP transmitter and receiver, the STiDP888 and STiDP880 respectively. They form a complete interface translator for panel-interface applications, allegedly redefining and simplifying the panel interface by reducing the number of wires, connectors, and signal traces. Both the transmitter and receiver integrate quad-LVDS interfaces for conversion between conventional quad-LVDS and iDP to address transitional market needs. The STiDP888 and STiDP880 come in 164-ball LFBGA packages and are available for sampling now. STMICROELECTRONICS, Lexington, MA. (888) 787-3550.
