NXP Semiconductors today announced two high-performance switches supporting DisplayPort and HDMI architectures.
The latest additions to NXP's computing portfolio include the CBTL06DP213, a bi-directional switch for DisplayPort 1.2 applications featuring bandwidth over 11 GHz; and the CBTL06GP212, the first switch to enable simultaneous support for both DisplayPort 1.2 and HDMI 1.4. Both are multi-channel capable devices designed using NXP's analog pass-gate technology.
The CBTL06DP213 is NXP's third-generation DisplayPort multiplexer featuring high bandwidth exceeding 11 GHz, as well as excellent signal integrity characteristics with low return loss. By minimizing signal degradation, the CBTL06DP213 also minimizes the number of active components required in connectors and cables connecting PCs, notebooks and tablets with external monitors, docking stations and other peripherals. The CBTL06DP213 supports DP 1.2, DP 1.1a and eDP (embedded DisplayPort) operating at 5.4 Gbps, 2.7 Gbps or 1.62 Gbps.
The CBTL06GP212 is a new six-channel switch for DisplayPort, HDMI and PCI Express applications at Gen2 speeds ? 5.0 Gbps for PCI Express, 5.4 Gbps for DisplayPort, and 3.4 Gbps for HDMI. Featuring a wide common-mode voltage range (3.6V) and low insertion loss, the CBTL06GP212 is the first switch to enable simultaneous DisplayPort 1.2 and HDMI support, reducing the number of additional components required, and enabling the design of compact combo connectors.
The CBTL06GP212 provides four differential channels capable of 1:2 switching; 2:1 multiplexing of bi-directional, AC-coupled PCI Express or DisplayPort signals; or 2:1 multiplexing of DC-coupled TMDS signals. Further, it is capable of 2:1 multiplexing of Hot Plug Detect (HPD) signals, as well as 4:1 multiplexing/switching for Auxiliary (AUX) and Display Data Channel (DDC) signals. The CBTL06GP212 provides a shut-down function to support battery-powered applications.
Both products are released and in volume production. Indicative pricing for quantities between 5,000 to 25,000 pieces is $1.00 for the CBTL06DP213, and $0.98 for the CBTL06GP212.
