Does anyone know if NEC are using the DSI or HDMI interface? I assume the HDMI interface, but is that going to potentially run into licensing problems?
The HDMI consortium puts strict controls on how HDMI can be used and, unless I am miss-reading their website, you are not allowed to use HDMI to connect between chips on the circuit board (i.e. the compute module and LVDS driver).
Below is an extract from the clarification on the HDMI.org website. http://www.hdmi.org/news_events/index.a ... rification
We have recently been approached with requests to test or certify products that use HDMI Technology in applications that are not defined by and/or licensed under the HDMI Adopter Agreement, the Specification, or supporting documents. Examples of proposed products include devices where HDMI connections exist internal to the end product, with no HDMI functionality external to the device.
What are people's thoughts on the legality of integrating the compute module into an LCD (assuming the HDMI interface is used)?In this case, using the HDMI specification to design an internal connection between subsystems is not allowed for Licensed Products.
