I have a customer that is looking for a 'translator' to convert TMDS (DVI/HDMI) to/from DisplayPort.


The customer told me that NXP makes devices that support resolutions around 1080p/30 & WUXGA (PTN3381 and others).

For example, the PTN3381 is DisplayPort (low swing AC coupled) -> TMDS (DVI/HDMI) up to WUXGA. This looks like a level shifter of some sort.
ST also has an option (STDP4020 and STDP4028), but these are not quite what they need because the IO is LVTTL or LVDS on one side requiring an additional conversion to go from TMDS to LVDS or vice versa.

Does ADI have a device that supports Dual Link DVI for resolutions above WUXGA (1920x1200) & 1080P? Essentially they are looking at 3D 1080p, 1080p 4:4:4 or WQXGA (2560X1600) resolutions with some additional features for computer graphics, high end consumer and broadcast markets.
