JAE Europe has announced the DP1, an external connector for the DisplayPort digital video and audio interface that supports high bandwidth services, such as high definition video, on PCs and home entertainment systems. DisplayPort is a next generation standard defined by the Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) that can be used externally to connect PCs or consumer electronics equipment and display monitors. The standard also supports internal connections, for example between laptops and their screens.
The DisplayPort specification paves the way for high bandwidth applications by offering a maximum 10.8 Gbit/s transmission rate that can support monitors up to 2560 x 1600 (WQXGA) resolution over a single three metre cable. It supports 1080p resolution, increasing popular among larger format flat screen TVs, over a length of up to 15 metres.

JAE’s DP1 is a shielded 20-pin connector featuring a 0.5mm pitch. The surface mount receptacle has four metal solder pins, providing a robust fitting, together with a plastic snap-in pin that enables simple, accurate positioning during equipment assembly. JAE also offers cable assemblies in standard and latching formats.
