World’s First MHL CTS 2.0 Certified Monitor Controller Chip Vendor
HSINCHU, Taiwan –January 21, 2013 –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 MHL monitor controllers fully comply with Mobile High-Definition Link Compliance Test Specification 2.0 (MHL CTS 2.0) and have received an MHL 2.0 certification logo from Allion Labs, Inc, Sony’s MHL Authorized Test Center (ATC).
Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL) is a new industry standard for a mobile audio/video interface used for directly connecting mobile phones and other portable consumer electronics devices to high-definition televisions and displays.
The Realtek RTD2487HTD is an advanced all-in-one LCD monitor controller with analog (RGB/YPbPr), MHL/HDMI/DVI, and DisplayPort inputs, and is offered in a 128LQFP package. No external memory is required, and with the embedded memory it supports frame rate conversion and overdrive functions simultaneously. It integrates an MCU, audio DAC, advanced color engine, 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 RTD2487HTD provides a reduced-cost system design by reducing the number of system components to enable use of a 2-layer PCB, making Realtek’s Single-Chip LCD MHL Monitor Controllers a compelling choice in today’s competitive market place.
“We are pleased to announce Realtek is the world’s first monitor controller chip vendor to receive MHL CTS 2.0 certification in Allion Labs, Inc”, said Realtek’s Vice President and Spokesman, Jessy Chen. “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”.
