V-by-One® HS plus is the advanced high-speed serial interface standard as the succeeding technology of V-by-One® HS. It supports today’s requirements of higher resolution such like 4K/8K and higher refresh rate over 120Hz on high-speed video inter connect with the transmission technology up to 8Gbps/lane. With this advanced technology, smarter system and higher energy efficiency can be archived in LCD/OLED TV or embedded display application through smaller cables/connectors and smaller pin count of video processor IC/Timing controller IC. The specification of V-by-One® HS plus are defined as a standard and licensed by THine Electronics, Inc. through its license program.
Overview of V-by-One® HS plus StandardV-by-One® HS plus Standard includes whole specification of V-by-One® HS Standard. V-by-One® HS plus Standard has two modes: 1) “HS plus Mode” with data rate of up to 8Gbps/lane and 2) “HS Mode” fully compatible to the latest version of V-by-One® HS Standard. Each Mode has no compatibility each other. User selects and implements either or both of those Modes.
Features of V-by-One® HS plus Standard and comparison with V-by-One® HSV-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. Furthermore, users can enjoy its value in higher data rates up to 8Gbps/lane, reference equalizer, and newly provided channel specification of high-speed data lane.
