As technology continues to get smaller and gain more functionality, cable technology must also adapt in order to keep up. eDp cables are an example of this quickly changing world of technology. Embedded DisplayPort (commonly referred to as eDP) is based on the VESA DisplayPort Standard. Embedded DisplayPort is a high performance audio/visual interface developed through the personal computer industry which allows displays to display in 4k and beyond. eDP cables have become a popular replacement for LVDS display cables which have been the standard since the mid 1990s.
How To Find the Correct EDP Cable For Your Project
The EDP cable you need for a project will largely depend on the number of pins that they will connect to. A 30 pin EDP cable will obviously not connect with a 40 pin connector, so it’s important to know what you are working with before purchasing EDP cables. If you aren’t sure exactly what you need, the experts at Quadrangle can quickly and easily identify the exact cable design that you need.
What You Should Know About eDP Cables
With a lot of new technology, eDP cables provide benefits that older model cables cannot. Many LCD manufacturers are moving to adding an eDP(Embedded DisplayPort) interface on their LCDs for this very reason. eDP interface allows higher transmission speeds as opposed to LVDS cables. eDP also uses less conductors on your cable design reducing space and possible cost depending on the design.
Another benefit of eDP cables is that they allow you to easily connect your source (such as a personal computer) directly to an LCD. They are also compatible with the DisplayPort standard and Quadrangle has experience building eDP to display port cables. Many eDP cables utilize the IPEX MicroCoax connectors. Quadrangle Products can provide you cable solutions from a MicroCoax to MicroCoax connector or MicroCoax to standard Discrete Wire Connector.
Quadrangle Products can also build Custom eDP or DisplayPort cables if your design requires it. We have strong relationships with many LCD manufactures that utilize the eDP interface and can provide guidance on your cable design. We also offer many Standard Stock eDP cables off the shelf that can ship the same or next day.
