high speed 10-bit LVDS 2-port to 4-port bridge
eP124 is a super high speed 10-bit LVDS 2-port to 4-port bridge. The chip converts 2-port LVDS input to 4-port LVDS output at a pixel rate of 330 MHz. The chip is capable of receiving dual-port 10-bit LVDS input at 165 MHz clock rate per port and convert it to 4-port 10-bit LVDS output at half the input clock rate. The chip adopts explore’s proprietary eLVDS (enhanced LVDS) technology which has the advantages of super high speed, low power consumption and wide operating voltage range (2.0V~2.75V) characteristics over the conventional LVDS technology.
eP124 supports LVDS transmission for flat panel display up to 1080p double frame rate (120 Hz) by using only 2 ports of LVDS cable/connectors. This will simply system connectivity and save system cost.
eP124 also supports inter-chip synchronization. By using 2 eP124 chips, 4-port to 8-port LVDS bridge can be achieved at a pixel rate of 660 MHz.
