MegaChips is First to Bridge DisplayPort with

HDMI2.0a in a Single Chip


LSPCON for Motherboard down-configuration application solution


USB Type-C / DisplayPort to HDMI2.0 accessory application solution

General information

The MCDP28x0 is a power-optimized DisplayPort1.2a-to-HDMI 2.0 converter device targeted for desktop/mobile PC motherboard-down applications and for DP or USB type-C adaptor (dongle, docking station) applications. This device functions as a level shifter as well as an active protocol converter. In level shifter mode, the device functions as a PHY repeater with optional jitter removal capability. This operating mode provides a low-power means of using an AC-coupled TMDS signal from a dual mode DP (DP++) source to be repeated to the HDMI output. The maximum TMDS character clock frequency in this mode is limited to 340 Mchar/s (per HDMI1.4b specification).

In Protocol Converter (PCON) mode, MCDP28x0 functions as a DP branch device receiving AC coupled DisplayPort stream and converting it to HDMI output. The maximum TMDS character clock frequency supported in this mode is up to 600 Mchar/s (per HDMI2.0 specification).
