Ryan Kastner and Rajesh Gupta | International Partner: TLi

The TLi Thunderbolt project is an effort to add support for the Intel Thunderbolt protocol to existing display controller ICs within the TLi product line. TLi can then offer Thunderbolt functionality to its partners that manufacture flat panel displays. TLi is in the process of obtaining the Thunderbolt specifications. Additionally, TLi and UCSD will investigate PCI Express protocol, display protocol and their integration.
