DisplayLink and ROHM Demonstrate USB Power Delivery Solutions at CES 2014

DisplayLink and ROHM Demonstrate USB Power Delivery Solutions at CES 2014

PALO ALTO, Calif., and KYOTO, Japan – 7th January, 2014 – DisplayLink®, the leading provider of USB Graphics technology and ROHM Semiconductor, (TSE: 6963), today announced they will demonstrate USB power delivery solutions at CES integrating the industry leading Rohm BD-92101 USB power delivery chipset combined with USB Graphics and docking chipset solutions from DisplayLink in products at CES 2014.

Notebooks, tablets, and peripherals such as hard disk drives, cameras, and more recently displays have derived power over USB 2.0 and 3.0 interfaces enabling simple connections for power and data eliminating the need for large cumbersome travel adapters. Mobile phones are now almost exclusively USB for charging and data transfer.  These products are limited to relatively low power levels. Now, the industry standard USB Power Delivery specification takes USB power to the next level, speeding the charging time of mobile devices and enabling the market to develop new products. ROHM has developed chipsets to enable power over USB (USB Power Delivery) for notebooks, tablets, phones, monitors and peripherals such as docking stations delivering  up to 100 Watts, 10 times the power of existing power solutions, while enabling USB3 SuperSpeed data over the same cable. 

“DisplayLink has long been a supporter of USB Power Delivery” said John Cummins, Vice President Sales and Marketing for DisplayLink, “We are keen to move the USB docking to a single cable user experience and believe that combining power and data up to 100W along with DisplayLink’s integrated docking chipset and compression technologies provides value and simplicity for small business to large enterprise users. ROHM is leading the charge with USB Power Delivery and DisplayLink is proud to be demonstrating products that integrate the ROHM BD92101 USB-PD Controller at CES 2014”. 

“DisplayLink’s Graphics and USB docking solutions made them an obvious partner to demonstrate with at CES,” said Mark Aaldering, Sr. Director of Marketing at ROHM. “The value that combining our offerings into a single cable docking solution demonstrates is compelling. Their growth in docking stations and monitor docking solutions has been impressive and adding USB Power Delivery to this growing array of solutions provides a real solution to integrating mobile devices on the desktop.” 

The new ROHM BD-92101 USB-PD Controller chipset from ROHM is the first integrated solution to implement the USB Power Delivery specification. With up to 10 times the power of legacy solutions, it will deliver faster charging of mobile devices such as notebooks, tablets and phones while extending the breadth of peripherals that can be used over USB with a single cable. Products utilizing the ROHM USB power delivery chipset will be available to users beginning in the second half of 2014.
