Chips Bridge LVDS to DisplayPort

Bridging the transition from LVDS to DisplayPort interfaces in notebook and all-in-one computers, the PS8615 chip converts single- or dual-link DisplayPort inputs into single or dual link LVDS outputs, supporting display resolutions up to 1920x1200 (at 60Hz), while the PS8612 converts a single lane DisplayPort signal to LVDS, which supports display resolutions up to 1680x1050 (at 60Hz). Both devices require a single 3.3V supply and integrate a voltage-switching regulator to power 1.2V core circuitry, eliminating the need for external regulators. Power consumption is less than 200 mW in typical applications. Both devices also incorporate Parade’s crystal-free technology, eliminating the need for an external crystal or clock reference. The PS8612 is available in a 48-pin QFN RoHS package and will be priced at $1.75 each in high volume. The PS8615 is available in a 56-pin QFN RoHS package and will be priced at $2.50 each in high volume. PARADE TECHNOLOGIES INC., San Jose, CA. (408) 329-5540.
