Lattice Releases World's First superMHL Solutions for USB Type-C to Deliver 4K 60fps Video with Concurrent USB 3.1 Data

PORTLAND – Lattice Semiconductor Corporation (NASDAQ: LSCC), the leading provider of customizable smart connectivity solutions, today announced the world’s first superMHL™ products for USB Type-C to deliver 4K 60fps RGB/4:4:4 video with concurrent USB 3.1 Gen 1 or Gen 2 data. The SiI8630 and SiI9396 are a low-power superMHL transmitter and receiver pair that can deliver and receive 4K 60fps over a single lane, enabling a PC experience with USB Type-C devices.

SiI8630 – Mobile/PC Market

The SiI8630 transmitter is able to seamlessly interface with HDMI® 2.0 transmitters already integrated into the Application Processors used in the latest phones, tablets and notebooks. Since this part has an MHL switch, it enables a direct interface with a USB 2.0-enabled Type-C connector without the need for additional high-speed switches. The SiI8630, combined with the  Si7033, offers a complete solution to deliver 4K 60 video with concurrent USB 3.1 Gen 1 data.

SiI9396 – Mobile/PC Accessories and Displays

The SiI9396 receiver is ideal for MHL adapters and docks. When paired with the  SiI7023 or SiI7033, MHL accessories can be designed to connect USB Type-C mobile and PC products to HDMI displays and USB devices such as keyboards, mice and external storage. The SiI9396 receiver can also be used in monitors, projectors and TVs to connect to MHL and superMHL sources, including mobile and PC devices with the USB Type-C connector.

USB Type-C products using these solutions will be able to connect to more than 750 million legacy MHL and future superMHL TVs, monitors, AVRs, Blu-ray Disc™ players, projectors, set-top boxes and automotive products.

“Our superMHL transmitters and receivers offer the lowest power, quick time to market, and the only solution to offer concurrent USB 3.1 data with 4K60 UHD video to address the growing number of productivity applications for mobile devices,” said Abdullah Raouf, senior marketing manager at Lattice Semiconductor. “Other video solutions require four lanes to deliver 4K 60fps, which inhibits concurrent 4K video with USB 3.1 data.”

The  SiI8630 and  SiI9396 devices support:

  • UHD 4K 60fps 4:4:4 over a single lane
  • Improved Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) features
  • Concurrent USB 3.1 (Gen 1 or Gen 2) data
  • Seamless integration with USB Type-C products
  • Latest superMHL features (BT.2020, High Dynamic Range, Object Audio, HDCP 2.2)
  • Legacy connectivity to MHL1, 2, and 3 enabled products

Evaluation kits are available now. For more information on MHL Alternate Mode (“Alt Mode”) for the USB Type-C specification, visit http://www.mhltech.org/usbtype-c.aspx.
