DisplayPort TX Controller

The Cadence® IP for DisplayPort™ TX Controller is a multi-protocol display controller, supporting DisplayPort, and Embedded DisplayPort (eDP™) standards. For the best match to specific project and application, the controller IP can be licensed as a single-protocol IP or as a solution with multi-protocol capabilities. As an ideal solution for mobile, consumer, and automotive infotainment markets, the Controller IP has a wide range of possible applications, including but not limited to: DVD and Blu-ray players, digital media adapters, game consoles, smartphones, and tablets.

The Controller IP is compliant with DisplayPort 1.3 HBR3 and Embedded DisplayPort 1.4 specifications, enabling display resolutions up to 8K 60Hz. Additional options like HDCP 2.2 support provide extra means of content protection. The Controller IP is designed to work with the USB Type-C™ DisplayPort Alt-Mode in both HBR2 (USB 3.0) as well as HBR3 (USB 3.1) modes.
