News THine Unveils Its Advanced High-Speed Serial Interface Technology, “V-by-One® HS plus,” Suitable for Achieving Energy Efficiency of Televisions

2023.04.21 Release

TOKYO (April 21, 2023) – THine Electronics, Inc. (Tokyo Stock Exchange: 6769), the global leader in high-speed serial interface and provider of mixed-signal LSI as well as valuable AI/IoT-based solution, today unveils its advanced high-speed serial interface technology “V-by-One® HS plus” that enables internal data transmission of 4K/8K televisions twice as fast as widely penetrated de facto standard V-by-One® HS technology. “V-by-One® HS plus” technology is suitable for achieving required energy efficiency of televisions and displays, and THine will start providing “V-by-One® HS plus Standard” to its valuable licensees since June 2023.

Since 2011, global high-resolution television markets and display markets such as 4K or 8K have generally used the high-speed internal interface technology V-by-One® HS as de facto standard, licensed by THine. Hundreds of the licensees of V-by-One® HS have enjoyed this technology and cultivated the value of high-resolution televisions and displays with THine.

Corresponding to the today’s requirements of higher resolution and higher refresh rate in television and display markets, THine will provide its advanced high-speed serial interface technology “V-by-One® HS plus Standard,” replacing de facto standard V-by-One® HS. “V-by-One® HS plus” technology has been completely developed and initiated by THine in Japan.

“V-by-One® HS plus” specification includes higher data transmission with 8 Gbps/lane, twice as fast as V-by-One® HS. This technology, enabling large sized LCD televisions and OLED televisions to achieve higher resolution and also enabling gaming monitors to achieve higher refresh rates more than 120 Hz, such systems can reduce the pin counts and footprints of video processors or timing controllers as well as number of internal cables, resulting in lowering power consumption of the whole systems. In high resolution television and display markets, wider adoption of “V-by-One® HS plus” can contribute today’s enhanced ecodesign requirements in Europe, US, etc.

“V-by-One® HS plus Standard” provided by THine has two modes: 1) “HS plus Mode” with data rate of 8Gbps/lane and 2) “HS Mode” compatible to V-by-One® HS, current de facto standard technology. Since “V-by-One® HS plus Standard” has such two modes, current V-by-One® HS will end with its replacement and new users will be supported by “V-by-One® HS plus Standard.”
“V-by-One® HS plus Standard” follows V-by-One® HS Standard, including basic protocols, design concept, so that users have little hurdles in switching from V-by-One® HS and users can enjoy its value in higher data rates, reference equalizer, and newly provided channel specification of high-speed data lane.

THine Group continuously contribute to growing markets such as display, camera, sensing, AI and IoT with its original value based on data transmission and communication technology.
