The SiI 1171 and 1172 PanelLink receiver and transmitter offer the highest available data-transfer rates, 225 MHz, for a single-link configuration. The receiver and transmitter, which provide a single-channel digital-visual-interface (DVI) connection for flat-panel display subsystems, fully comply with the DVI specification. The SiI 1171 receiver and SiI 1172 transmitter support the new breed of high-resolution QXGA (2048 by 1536) displays by providing a low-cost, single-link digital interface. By boosting the single-link bandwidth to 225 MHz, the SiI 1171 and SiI 1172 extend the maximum dual-link speed to 450 MHz for future higher-resolution displays. The SiI 1171 is housed in a 100-lead TQFP, while the 1172 comes in a 48-lead TSSOP. In 10,000-unit lots, the receiver costs $9.65 each, and the transmitter is $5.85 apiece. Samples are immediatly available. Production is slated for the fourth quarter.
