This page will assist you in learning about your PTN3816EVM Evaluation Board.
The PTN3816EVM board is designed to be redrive DisplayPort signal outputs from a host graphics card, and to interface with a DisplayPort monitor or a DP-to-HDMI level shifter on the other side. There is a row of DIP switches on the EVM that can change PTN3816’s equalizer, output swing linearity and flat gain settings of redriver channels.
The evaluation board’s power is supplied from a micro-USB connector, and an on-board LDO converts 5.0 V input to both 3.3 V and 1.8 V. 3.3 V is only used to provide power to downstream cable or level shifter dongle. 1.8 V is used for PTN3816.
