The acquisition of Multigig fits squarely in the middle of our high-speed signal processing strategy and will further strengthen our portfolio of very high performance stand-alone and integrated clocking solutions,” said Peter Real, ADI vice president of linear and radio frequency products and technology, in a statement. Continually evolving end markets, such as wireless and wire line communications, place ever more stringent demands on signal processing solutions and high-performance clocking capabilities are critical to meeting customers’ system requirements.”

The PS181 targets computer and docking stations applications. The device accepts a native DisplayPort input and provides a Dual-Mode DisplayPort output. Dual-Mode DisplayPort, defined by the VESA DisplayPort Dual-Mode standard, provides a DisplayPort output that supports level-shifting DisplayPort to HDMI/DVI cable adaptors. The PS181 provides the native DisplayPort to HDMI/DVI protocol conversion needed to support these cable adaptors along with cable adaptor detection.
