PanelBus DVI Receiver 86MHz, HSYNC fix


Not Recommended for New Designs (NRND)

Replaced By TFP401A – The device has the SAME FUNCTIONALITY and PINOUT as the compared device but is NOT an exact equivalent. Enhanced performance related to resolution.

TI does not recommend using this part in a new design. This product continues to be in production to support existing customers.


The Texas Instruments TFP101 and TFP101A are TI PanelBus™ flat panel display products, part of a comprehensive family of end-to-end DVI 1.0 compliant solutions. Targeted primarily at desktop LCD monitors and digital projectors, the TFP101/101A finds applications in any design requiring high-speed digital interface.

The TFP101/101A supports display resolutions up to XGA in 24-bit true color pixel format. The TFP101/101A offers design flexibility to drive one or two pixels per clock, supports TFT or DSTN panels, and provides an option for time staggered pixel outputs for reduced ground bounce.

PowerPAD™ advanced packaging technology results in best of class power dissipation, footprint, and ultra-low ground inductance.

The TFP101/101A combines PanelBus™ circuit innovation with TI’s advanced 0.18-µm EPIC-5™ CMOS process technology, along with TI PowerPAD™ package technology to achieve a reliable, low-powered, low noise, high-speed digital interface solution.

  1. The Digital Visual Interface Specification, DVI, is an industry standard developed by the Digital Display Working Group (DDWG) for high-speed digital connection to digital displays The TFP101 and TFP101A are compliant to the DVI Specification Rev. 1.0.
  2. The TFP101/101A has an internal voltage regulator that provides the 1.8-V core power supply from the externally supplied 3.3-V supplies.
  3. The TFP101A incorporates additional circuitry to create a stable HSYNC from DVI transmitters that introduce undesirable jitter on the transmitted HSYNC signal.
