Asmusr Posted July 7, 2018 Share Posted July 7, 2018 Yup, I have seen that chip many times; it comes up in just about every search I do related to this problem. The main issues with it are cost (is is almost $10), availability (it seems to only be available from DigiKey, and I like to have at least two suppliers for every component I use), and size (the chip is 164-pins and 12mm x 12mm). Unfortunately it tries to do too much. If they would just make a chip for LVDS to DP *or* RGB to DP, that would make it simpler, smaller, and cheaper. I guess the biggest issue is not the cost or the availability but the space? Since you already know most of the boards where the MK2 has to fit, isn't it possible to extend the PCB a little bit at one end? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
