Mini-DVI interface is used for Apple's computer, which is a digital replacement interface of the Mini-VGA interface. Its size is between the normal DVI interface and the Micro-DVI interface. It is used in 12-inch PowerBook G4, Intel-Based IMAC, MacBook Intel-based notebook, and intel-based xserve. MacBook AIR does not use this interface. The Mini-DVI interface on the Apple computer hardware can pass DDC to detect Edid (Extended Display Identification Data) through different adapters, transmit DVI, VGA, or TV signals. This interface is usually used to replace the DVI interface to reduce the physical dimension of the device. It requires a mini-DVI adapter to connect to other monitors. Mini-DVI does not support dual-channel connections Therefore, it does not support a resolution above 1920x1200 @ 60Hz.
mini-DVI adapter has the following:
apple mini-dvi to vga adapter Apple Part (M9320G / a)
apple mini-dvi to video Adapter Apple Part (M9319G / a)
Apple Mini-DVI to DVI Adapter (DVI-D) Apple Part (M9321G / A) Similar to Mini-VGA in physical appearance, different It is two rows in which it has four rows of storms instead of MINI-VGA.
If you need to use a DVI-I interface, you must connect the Mini-DVI to DVI-D line to a DVI-D to DVI-i adapter.
For Apple's Mini-DVI interface, there are some voices of criticism.
Apple's Mini-DVI to DVI-D teleconcover cannot be delivered by an analog signal from the MINI-DVI interface on Apple Computer. This means that when the VGA output is required, the user has to purchase another Mini-DVI wiring without using a mini-DVI to add an inexpensive DVI to the VGA adapter to solve. If Apple can provide Mini-DVI to DVI-i forwarding, this condition can be solved. The role of DVI-i is to provide generic compatibility.
Apple's Mini-DVi to DVI-D Tong-to-wiring is shown in DVI-I instead of DVI-D, and does not explain it to DVI-D.
