DisplayPort 2:1 Multiplexer with Jitter Cleaning, DisplayPort v1.4a, Dual-mode compatible, with LTTPR command snooping

The PS8461E is an integrated DisplayPort 2:1 multiplexer that is compatible with DisplayPort 1.4a and dual-mode DisplayPort signaling.  An internal retimer circuit is used for jitter cleaning both native DisplayPort signaling and the TMDS signaling enabled by Dual-mode operation.  DisplayPort link rates up to 8.1Gbps are supported, and TMDS data rates up to 6Gbps are supported enabling the support of HDMI 2.0b operation up to 40K@60Hz.  When used for native DisplayPort signaling, through the use transparent repeater operation the PS8461E main link output swing and pre-emphasis levels will response to link training between the DisplayPort video Source and downstream Sink.  For LTTPR (Link Training Tunable PHY Repeater) operation, the PS8461E monitors the DisplayPort AUX Channel to snoop the LTTPR  DPCD register transactions.

When used with a dual-mode upstream Source, the PS8461E supports the Dual-mode AC coupled TMDS signaling that enables the support of DVI or HDMI Sink devices through the use of a downstream level shifting device such as a Dual-mode DP to HDMI adapter.
