Toshiba Introduces Industry-First 4K2K Embedded Displayport™ (eDP™)-To-MIPI® Dual-DSI Bridge Chipset

New chipset to help drive innovation for tablets, phablets and handheld gaming devices

SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 18, 2014 — (PRNewswire) — Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc. ( TAEC)*, a committed leader that collaborates with technology companies to create breakthrough designs, today unveiled the industry's first [1] Embedded DisplayPortTM (eDPTM)-to-MIPI® dual-Display Serial Interface (DSI) converter chipset. The new TC358860XBG chipset enables the 4K2K ultra high definition (UHD) experience for handheld electronic devices such as tablets, phablets and portable gaming systems.

"In the high-performance, feature-driven mobile market, consumers are always looking for the next big thing," said Deepak Prakash, senior director for the Logic LSI Business Unit, System LSI Group at TAEC. "By creating this chipset that enables 4K resolution displays to operate at low power, Toshiba will help ensure that the next generation of handheld products delivers the most advanced, highest-definition viewing experience available."

The TC358860XBG chipset incorporates both video format conversion and compression technology to support 4K2K high-resolution displays. Employing both high-speed serial interface industry standards with low power operation capability in one chip enables UHD 4K displays while maintaining handhelds' low power consumption requirements. The chipset also delivers the high refresh rates – beyond 60 frames per second (fps) – needed to enable a "living room" quality gaming experience in a handheld gaming system.

The TC358860XBG provides eDP incoming data (RX) support for VESA eDP v1.4. This includes eight types of bitrate support, ranging from 1.62 to 5.4 Gbps; maximum 1Mbps AUX channel support; and native and I2C-over-AUX transaction support. On the outgoing data side, the chipset supports MIPI dual-port DSI with maximum 1.0Gbps/lane link speed interface and a total data transfer capability of 8Gbps. The device is housed in a 5.0 x 5.0 mm FBGA65 package with 0.5mm ball pitch.

Availability
TC358860XBG chipset samples are available now; mass production will begin in March 2015.
