Diodes Incorporated Introduces Industry’s First DisplayPort 2.0 Active Switch

[Plano, Texas, April 29, 2020]Diodes Incorporated (Nasdaq: DIOD) today announced the industry’s first 4-channel, 2:1 active switching DisplayPort™ 2.0 (UHBR10) with multiplexing and ReDriver™ product PI3DPX8121. The device is part of the company’s line of DisplayPort switching and signal conditioning solutions designed to meet the design needs of personal computers, monitors, set-top boxes and other AV equipment.

DisplayPort was developed to provide high-resolution digital audio and video data transfer. The specifications for DisplayPort 2.0 cover three data transfer rates: 10Gbps (UHBR10), 13.5Gbps (UHBR13.5), and 20Gbps (UHBR20). The PI3DPX8121 is currently the only product on the market that supports 10Gbps base rate and includes the multiplexing function mentioned in the specification.

DisplayPort 1.4 has a data transfer rate of up to 8.1Gbps per channel, but DisplayPort 2.0 increases the available bandwidth. The main benefit of higher bandwidth is that it reduces the need for data compression and increases overall system speed. New consumer products with DisplayPort 2.0 are expected to launch in early 2021, and the PI3DPX8121 is poised to help manufacturers meet their 10Gbps (UHBR10) goals.

The PI3DPX8121 ReDriver is compatible with DisplayPort 1.4 and 2.0 (UHBR10) for future flexibility. The device also provides a protocol-agnostic mode of operation that supports the Link-Through-Training PHY Repeater (LTTPR) redriver datapath type.

The input of the unit incorporates a CTLE equalizer to reduce ISI jitter and compensate for channel loss. The PI3DPX8121 also provides programmable flat gain and linearity adjustment.
