The DisplayPort* is a digital communication interface that uses differential signaling to achieve a high-bandwidth bus interface designed to support connections between PCs and monitors, projectors, and TV displays.

A DisplayPort* consists of a Main Link (four lanes), Auxiliary channel, and a Hot-Plug Detect signal. The Main Link is a unidirectional, high-bandwidth, and low-latency channel used for transport of isochronous data streams such as uncompressed video and audio. The Auxiliary Channel (AUX CH) is a half-duplex bi-directional channel used for link management and device control. The Hot-Plug Detect (HPD) signal serves as an interrupt request from the sink device to the source device.

The processor is designed in accordance with VESA* DisplayPort* specification. Refer to Display Technologies Support.
