TFP501 PanelBus <TM> HDCP Digital Receiver |


PanelBus HDCP Digital Receiver



The TFP501 is a Texas Instruments PanelBus flat panel display product, part of a comprehensive family of end-to-end DVI 1.0-compliant solutions. Targeted primarily at desktop LCD monitors, DLP and LCD projectors, and digital TVs, the TFP501 finds applications in any design requiring high-speed digital interface with the additional benefit of an extremely robust and innovative encryption scheme for digital content protection.

The TFP501 supports display resolutions up to 1080p and WUXGA in 24-bit true color pixel format. The TFP501 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 TFP501 combines PanelBus circuit innovation and unique implementation for HDCP key protection with TI’s advanced 0.18 µm EPIC-5 CMOS process technology to achieve a completely secure, reliable, low-powered, low noise, high-speed digital interface solution.

(1) The digital visual interface (DVI) specification is an industry standard developed by the digital display working group (DDWG) for high-speed digital connection to digital displays. The high-bandwidth digital content protection system (HDCP) is an industry standard for protecting DVI outputs from being copied. HDCP was developed by Intel Corporation and is licensed by the Digital Content Protection, LLC. The TFP501 is compliant to the DVI Rev. 1.0 and HDCP Rev. 1.0 specifications.
