Industry-First, Automotive-Compliant ReDriver from Diodes Incorporated Enables DisplayPort via USB Type-C

Plano, Texas – May 19, 2020 – Diodes Incorporated (NASDAQ: DIOD) today announced the industry’s first automotive AEC-Q100 grade 3 qualified 10Gbps USB-C® DisplayPort™ Alternate (DP-Alt) mode linear ReDriver™ IC. The DP-Alt mode allows the transfer of DisplayPort signals through a USB Type-C® connector. Supporting 8.1Gbps DP1.4 and the 10Gbps USB 3.2 specifications, the PI3DPX1207Q provides a transparent, protocol-agnostic ReDriver capability for a range of automotive applications including infotainment systems and cluster display panels.

Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., a subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated, specifies the PI3DPX1207Q within its Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ Automotive Development Platform (ADP) for infotainment applications. The Snapdragon ADP is based on the company’s third generation Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ Automotive Cockpit Platform.

The DP-Alt ReDriver offers ultra-low latency and excellent signal integrity characteristics for up to 8k display resolutions and is entirely transparent to channel link training. Each of the 4-to-4 linear differential channels is controllable via I2C commands, including equalization, gain, and output swing. Controls also include adjusting signal integrity settings for compensation and removing intersymbol interference jitter. An integrated AUX switch and AUX listener can monitor for DisplayPort power down commands or a power-down instruction via the I2C interface.

The PI3DPX1207Q, supplied in the 42-TQFN package, supports PPAP documentation and is manufactured in IATF16949 certified facilities.

How to Measure the Power Supply Rejection Ratio for LDOs

Sponsored by Maxim Integrated

Noise on power supplies typically propagates to the output and is typically unwanted in applications like precision measurement and RF communication. LDOs reject AC noise based on their power-supply rejection ratio (PSRR). PSRR is a function of noise frequency and input-to-output voltage difference & its values are not consistently presented in manufacturers' data sheets. This app note shows the steps to determine the PSRR of Maxim's MAX38902A/B, equipping readers to perform their own PSRR measurements.
