EP196E is a 5.4G 4-lane DP/eDP transmitter with 8-lane cLVDS input. cLVDS is a super high speed LVDS technology developed by Explore. The chip converts video input data from 1 to 8 lanes cLVDS RX into DP/eDP differential signals.
EP196E is integrated with an on-chip eFlash MCU with pre-programmed firmware driver for cLVDS and DP/eDP control. Software development effort can be greatly reduced.
