"Analogix Semiconductor (Santa Clara, Calif.) announced Wednesday (Jan. 8) its first receiver chip for the DisplayPort interconnect. The news comes on the heels of the first plugfest for the digital interface proponents say will be used in a range of computer and consumer systems.

DisplayPort seeks to replace Digital Visual Interface, Low Voltage Differential Signaling and eventually VGA in a rage of computer monitors, TVs, projectors and notebooks. It competes directly with a variant of High-Definition Multimedia Interface called Universal Display Interface which is aimed at simplifying HDMI for PCs.

HDMI is the big fish in high def interconnects for consumer systems such as TVs. HDMI Licensing, LLC, the agent responsible for licensing HDMI, announced that more than 500 manufacturers have adopted the standard, a 60 per cent increase since the 2006 Consumer Electronics Show. However, HDMI chips are generally seen as too large, power hungry and expensive to replace analog VGA in computers."
