3.1.8. Displays

The color LCD signals are sourced either from the CLCD controller in the Northbridge or custom logic implemented in a Logic Tile fitted to the PB-A8 tile site. See Figure 3.5 for interconnect details. The color LCD signals are processed by a DVI transmitter chip and fed to the baseboard DVI-I connector. The color LCD signals are also converted to analog VGA signals by a video DAC and fed to the baseboard DVI-I connector. A serial 2-wire interface implemented in the Southbridge provides the DDC2B interface. See DVI Interface for details.

Note

A DVI-D cable is required to connect a digital display, and a DVI-A cable is required to connect an analog display. Alternatively, a DVI-I cable can be used to connect a digital or analog display.
