DisplayPort 1.4 MST Hub


The KTM5000 is an advanced DisplayPort1.4a MST hub with an integrated USB type-C de-multiplexer, targeted primarily for Mobile Notebook accessories and display applications. This device functions as a multi-stream audio-video splitter and protocol converter with an HDCP1.x/ HDCP2.3 repeater.

KTM5000 has a DP alt-mode capable USB Type-C Upstream Facing Port (UFP). The four high-speed lanes of UFP can receive DP1.4a MST audio-video and USB3.2 Gen2 data streams simultaneously. The input lane mapping is flexible and meets standard DP or the USB Type-C connector with flip orientation requirements. The incoming DP and USB signals are de-multiplexed, retimed, and transmitted on the Downstream Facing Ports (DFP). The KTM5000 consists of three AC coupled DP/DP++ or DC coupled HDMI/DVI DFPs, each with four high-speed lanes and one USB port with USB3.2 TX and RX pair. The Stream Routing Logic in KTM5000 allows flexible routing of incoming DP MST stream converted into any combination of MST or SST streams on any of the DFP video ports with link rate and lane count change option. Also, the SST stream can be replicated on two or more DFP ports. In addition, the DP SST stream can be converted into an HDMI or DVI output (TMDS signal format).

The combo receiver in KTM5000 supports all DP standard data rates up to HBR3 (8.1 Gbps/lane) and USB3.2 Gen1 (5.0 Gbps) and Gen2 (10.0 Gbps). The dual-mode (DP++) transmitters support DP standard data rates up to 8.1 Gbps/lane and TMDS data rates up to 6.0 Gbps/lane.
