Realtek Single-Chip LCD DisplayPort Monitor Controllers Pass VESA CTS 1.1 Certification

2009/02/27 World’s First VESA CTS 1.1 Certified DisplayPort Monitor Controllers

HSINCHU, Taiwan –February 27, 2009 –Realtek Semiconductor Corp. (Taiwan Stock Exchange: 2379.TW), one of the world’s largest IC design houses and a market leader in LCD display controller technology, today announced that its Single-Chip LCD monitor DisplayPort controllers became the first monitor controllers to receive a DisplayPort certification logo from VESA (Video Electronics Standards Association) and fully comply with the VESA DisplayPort CTS 1.1 specifications.
The RTD2485D is an advanced all-in-one LCD monitor controller with analog (RGB), YPbPr, HDMI/DVI/DisplayPort 2A+2D inputs, supporting up to 1920X1200/1920x1080, and is offered in a 128QFP package without frame buffer memory. It also integrates an MCU, audio DAC, advanced color controller engine, an infrared control, and an HDCP1.3 compliant digital content protection function, providing a full-featured cost- effective platform. In addition to high quality and tight integration, the RTD2485D provides a low-cost system design by reducing the number of system components to enable use of a 2-layer PCB, making Realtek’s Single-Chip LCD DisplayPort Monitor Controllers a compelling choice in today’s competitive market place.

“We are pleased to announce Realtek’s Single-Chip LCD DisplayPort Monitor Controllers are the world’s first Monitor Controllers to receive DisplayPort CTS 1.1 certification”, said Yee-Wei Huang, Multimedia Business Unit Vice President at Realtek. “Our products offer high integration, high performance, and high adaptability. We have focused on every aspect of the user experience as we help customers to rapidly accelerate their design flow, and provide a substantial reduction in cost alongside an increase in available features”.
