IDT launches DisplayPort-to-HDMI translators

Translators can be used in a dongle, digital signage displays,or embedded in a motherboard, docking station, or video switch box

By CBR Staff Writer

Integrated Device Technology, a provider of analog and digital mixed-signal semiconductor offerings, has launched a new family of DisplayPort-to-HDMI or DVI translators targeted at tablet and multi-monitor applications.

The new IDT DisplayPort translators enable translation of the DisplayPort 1.1a interface to HDMI or DVI. The IDT VLX2000 translates one DisplayPort input to a single HDMI or DVI output, while the IDT VMM1402 translates one DisplayPort input to two HDMI or DVI outputs.

The IDT VLX2000 and VMM1402 do not require a dual-mode input source for operation, and these translators can be used in a dongle, digital signage displays, or embedded in a motherboard, docking station, or video switch box.

Additionally, the IDT VLX2000 and VMM1402 translators enable users with a DisplayPort-based notebook or desktop to utilise up to two HDMI- or DVI-based monitors or TVs.

The translators do not require an expensive, inconvenient power adaptor or on-board voltage regulator as they are self-powered, the company said.

The new IDT DisplayPort translators join the recently launched 4-output VMM1400, and are complete PHY and full protocol link layer repeater ICs.

They feature jitter clean-up functions to recondition and re-establish the signal while resetting the jitter budget to provide end-signal quality matching the source.

IDT Video and Display Operation vice president and general manager Ji Park said the new IDT offerings provide a low-cost translator with no additional driver, making them easy to use.
