TI intros single-chip DockPort technology destined for laptops and tablets

TI intros singlechip DockPort tailored for laptops and tablets

The DockPort standard is only just getting off the ground with support in AMD’s Elite Performance processors. TI could soon make the technology fly, however: its new (if awkwardly named) HD3SS2521 controller handles all the tasks of DockPort on a single chip. The hardware is both simpler and cheaper than past multi-chip designs, and makes it easier for laptops and tablets to deliver DisplayPort video, USB 3.0 and power through a single cable. Whether or not we see more DockPort-equipped mobile gadgets is another matter. While the TI chip is available today, device builders still have to choose DockPort over a more established standard like Intel’s Thunderbolt.
