HDMI 1.3 Tx PHY IP in 40LP

Description and Features

HDMI transmitter PHY (Physical layer) IP core which is fully compliant with HDMI 1.3 specification. The HDMI TX PHY supports from 25MHz to 250MHz pixel clock, and offers a simple implementation for system LSI for consumer electronics like DVD player/recorder and camcorder. It is Silicon Proven in many Fab/Nodes including: (TSMC, UMC, SMIC, GF, Samsung, STMicro). HDMI Transmitter 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 Rx IP can be realized when it is connected to HDMI Transmitter PHY IP. HDMI Tx IP can be customized to meet customer specific requirement.
