The demand for higher resolution displays is exploding across the market segments from electronics like television, monitors, laptops, and smartphones to the emerging technologies like video and vision, automotive, and AR/VR. The bandwidth requirement for displays increases multi-fold with higher resolution which has been the main driver for development of the latest DisplayPort 2.0 specification by VESA.
The Synopsys Verification IP team has already been engaged with early adopters using this evolving specification since early 2019. This collaboration has helped accelerate the verification closure of the early adopters next generation Display designs ahead of their competition. In this blog, we will highlight what’s new in DisplayPort 2.0 specification, and provide insights from our experiences working with customers.
To meet industry requirements, this latest specification, DisplayPort 2.0, adds the following significant enhancements and new features:
- Higher speeds of 10Gbps, 13.5Gbps and 20Gbps
- More efficient 128b/132b encoding to improve the overall efficiency of the lanes
- Panel Replay feature to improve the power efficiency
- Support for the higher resolutions of 10K and 16K
