Abstract

Recently, EMI noise issue has been increased due to high frequency of CLKs such as CPU clock, Memory clock and PCI BUS clock. On the other hand, EMI noise from LCD panel is getting bigger, as a resolution of LCD is getting higher. Then, some Video chip suppliers started providing video chips that make these EMI noise reduced. However, these efficiency is not enough because the width of Spread Spectrum cannot be wider due to limitations of input signals for transmitters like LVDS transmitter and DVI transmitter. This invention solves these kind of issues, and provides high efficency for reducing EMI noises. The following drawing shows the diagram of this invention. This invention gives us the following advantages. 1. Able to reduce EMI noise even with Video Chip that doesn't have Spread Spectrum Function. 2. Adaptive for not only Notebook, but also External LCD Monitor of Desktop PC.
