Transition-minimized differential signaling

Schematic of a TMDS link used as a link for digital component video data (RGB) between a video controller (PC) and a display controller (Monitor) in interfaces such as DVI or HDMI

Transition-minimized differential signaling (TMDS), a technology for transmitting high-speed serial data, is used by the DVI[1] and HDMI video interfaces, as well as by other digital communication interfaces.

The transmitter incorporates an advanced coding algorithm which reduces electromagnetic interference over copper cables and enables robust clock recovery at the receiver to achieve high skew tolerance for driving longer cables as well as shorter low-cost cables.
