My customer plans to use the ADV7511 or ADV7513 HDMI transceiver.
Does he need a license?
He would not need a HDMI license. He needs a HDCP license if he plans to purchase a HDMI receiver with HDCP keys. ADV7511 and ADV7513 are both transmitters so no license is needed.
1- No HDMI license required
2- No DHCP license required for the tramitter side.
So does this mean you only need an HDMI license if your product includes something like the ADV7611?
HDCP license, not HDMI. They are two different things. You'd need to be an HDMI adopter regardless, depending on what you are trying to do. You have to check here for the terms:
