DisplayLink Unveils New USB Power Delivery - Charge While Delivering USB Graphics, Video, Ethernet, & Audio Over a Single Cable
DisplayLink announced it will demonstrate the new USB Power Delivery capability in the USB Techzone at CES 2013. The demonstration will show a USB Power Delivery Monitor Dock charging a full size notebook with just a single USB cable. DisplayLink Technology provides USB Graphics, Video, Gigabit Ethernet, Audio and multiple USB connections for external peripherals simultaneously over the same USB cable.
DisplayLink's technology is widely deployed in USB Docking Stations within Fortune 500 companies globally, providing flexibility to IT Managers to easily connect notebooks and tablets over a single USB cable. The new USB Power Delivery specification takes this capability to the next level by delivering up to 100 Watts of charging power to a notebook over the same cable. The new USB Power Delivery specification defines power outputs as high as 100 Watts, far greater than today's USB 3 specification of 0.9 Watts. This new capability also has application for future DisplayLink enabled USB bus powered monitors enabling even larger screen sizes. DisplayLink's technology is ready to work in conjunction with the new USB PD specification today.
"We're truly excited about the upcoming USB Power Delivery solutions, which we believe will cement USB as the docking connector of choice for all notebooks and tablets," said John Cummins, Vice President Sales and Marketing for DisplayLink. "This is a snapshot of connectivity to come, and we are very happy to show to interested parties at CES 2013 in Las Vegas."
