SHANGHAI, China -- Feb. 15, 2011 -- The rapidly developing tablet, notebook and netbook PC markets are creating demand for high-performance interconnects with sufficient throughput to drive the latest display technology.

With these requirements in mind, Tyco Electronics (TE) has introduced the next generation LCD Coaxial Embedded Display Interface (LCEDI) family of connectors, with which TE is able to provide a total solution for panel / main board interconnection.

There are two distinct versions of LCEDI connectors: LCEDI and LCEDI SR. LCEDI connectors are mainly designed for notebook panels and tablet PCs, while LCEDI SR connectors are designed for system applications.

This family of connectors provides exceptional electrical performance in both low-voltage differential signaling (LVDS) and embedded DisplayPort (eDP) applications. It is licensed by I-PEX CO., LTD. and is fully compatible and intermateable with the I-PEX CABLINEVS connector series, the global standards connector for LED backlight wide (16x9) panel interface. Its ultra-low profile mating configuration (1.1mm height) makes it ideal for the slim LED backlight LCD panels of advanced notebook personal computers.

VESA specified that next-generation digital video interface eDP, in conjunction with standard DisplayPort V1.1a specification, will support the PC market and offer a cost-effective substitute to current LVDS transmission technology. eDP architecture drives 2.7Gbps per lane with a bandwidth of 10.8Gbps over four differential lanes. Each data lane embeds clock signal for superb signal integrity, producing much lower EMI at higher speed data transmission.

Tyco Electronics' LCEDI connector family accommodates consistent digital data transmission through one, two or four DisplayPort standard lanes at a reduced bit rate of 1.62 Gbps or a high bit rate of 2.7 Gbps through each lane, and even faster data rates are possible over different wiring schemes. The product family offers high density for tablet, notebook and netbook PC applications, minimizing space and accommodating future pin out for LED backlight technology.
