The CBTL03SB212 is a sideband signal multiplexer for DisplayPort Gen2 applications. It provides one differential channel capable of switching or multiplexing (bidirectional and AC-coupled) DisplayPort 1.2 Fast AUX or AUX signal, using high-bandwidth pass-gate technology. Additionally, it provides for switching/multiplexing of the Hot Plug Detect signal as well as the Display Data Channel (DDC) signals, for a total of three channels.
A typical application of CBTL03SB212 is on motherboards where one of two GPU display sources needs to be selected to connect to a display sink device or connector. A controller chip selects which path to use by setting a select signal HIGH or LOW. Due to the non-directional nature of the signal paths (which use high-bandwidth pass-gate technology), the CBTL03SB212 can also be used in the reverse topology, e.g., to connect one display source device to one of two display sink devices or connectors.
