Global certification company UL Solutions’s Taiwan laboratory has been approved as a test center for a new display port standard developed by the Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA).

According to UL, the Taiwan lab has been approved by VESA to certify DisplayPort (DP) ultra-high bit rate (UHBR) cables under the DISPLAYPORT 2.0 specification.

DisplayPort is a digital audio/video (AV) interface standard developed by VESA in partnership with the graphics processing unit (GPU) and display industry.

DisplayPort technology is available on a wide range of desktop computers, monitors, notebooks, tablets, digital TVs and augmented reality/virtual reality (AR/VR) devices.

As compared to the high bit rate (HBR) in the DisplayPort 1.4 specification covering up to 32.4 Gbps, the higher bandwidths enabled by UHBR allow a DISPLAYPORT cable to support a variety of more advanced use cases, such as uncompressed 8K 60Hz HDR, 4K 240Hz HDR, two 4K 120Hz HDR or four 4K 60Hz HDR displays.

Besides its testing solutions for DISPLAYPORT, UL Solutions are also experienced in testing high-speed cables with other interfaces, such as USB, HDMI®, and HDBaseTTM ethernet.
