Lattice Semiconductor 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.
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.
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.
