San Jose, Calif.— Designed to help accelerate DisplayPort adoption, Parade Technologies Ltd. released a video display timing controller (T-CON) IC that satisfies the recently updated VESA eDP v1.2 specification. Parade’s DP616 lowers total system cost and system power requirements by eliminating the need for an external voltage regulator.
The DP616 is an eDP sink device that accepts video input from a CPU or GPU and converts it into mini-LVDS row and column video data for use by a display panel. The Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) announced the version 1.2 upgrade of its embedded DisplayPort (eDP) spec last month.
