HDMI 1.3 Rx PHY IP in 40LP

Description and Features

HDMI receiver PHY (Physical layer) IP is single-port core which is fully compliant with HDMI 1.3a specification. This HDMI Rx PHY supports from 25MHz to 225MHz TMDS clock, and offers a simple implementation for system LSI for consumer electronics like HDTV. The HDMI Rx PHY performs most efficiently with HDMI receiver link IP core. It is Silicon Proven in many Fab/Nodes including: (TSMC, UMC, SMIC, GF, Samsung, STMicro). HDMI Receiver Link IP Core supporting the standard of HDMI 1.3a, which will be quickly implemented into SoC of consumers; product (HD-TV, AV receiver... etc.). The best performance, efficiency and characteristic of HDMI Receiver Link IP can be realized when it is connected to HDMI Receiver PHY IP. This HDMI Rx IP can be customized to meet customer specific requirement.
