CAC-2330 vs CAC-1330

Can you explain the technical difference betwen CAC-2330 and CAC-1330 HDMI->DP adapters? I am looking at my local dustin dealer, but they don’t seem to carry either of them, so I would like to know the difference before I place any mail order.

Hello Ost,

There is no technical difference in between those 2. The CAC-2330 is just the more cost efficient version packed in Poly Bag but has the same chip inside and work in the same manner.

I’ve got some extended question to these adapters.

First, I’d wish you used the power from supplied from the displayport side (3.3v 500mA) instead of the awkward extra USB wire. Also I wish they were designed to plug near the DP end, not the HDMI end. Are there any technical reasons for the way it is done?

2nd, will this work between non HDCP compliant devices? I find other brands are not able to do that, because it appeas as if the adapter presents itself as HDCP compatible without even asking the monitor, ending up with no image, even if the source allows non HDCP output. AppleTV is a great source for testing this, as it will send image and allow some apps on non HDCP compliant sinks, and put an error message up on the screen if it needs to. A bad adapter will prevent this.

3rd and last, can the firmware be upgraded from either end? Finding a repeatable device seems to be hard, and it would be nice if they can be upgraded to behave the same way.

Not sure i understand the first part / question  :-S
The adapter cannot take power from DP Display output to feed the adapter chips on other end of that signal line.
This adapter should not play a part in determining if a signal with or without HDCP will be shown. It has a reapeater for HDCP 1.4, so if an HDCP signal is send to the adapter it will just forward it.
Normally active adapters like this can only be updated from source side, so in this case the HDMI side. I will double chekc on this one, but cannot imagine you can update it from the “transmitter-side”.

To clearify the first part. All DP ports supply power, both the receiving end and the transmitting end. This allows for much practical active adapters than on HDMI where only the transmitter can supply power. This is why it makes more sense to put this type of  adapter at the receiving end, where you have approx 1.5W of power available on a short wire, vs HDMI output where you can harvest approx 250mW. This is also why there is a need for additional power at higher pixelrates. I know Lindy has an adapter probably based on the same STDP2600 chip but stuck to the receiving end. I know their adapter (the one I got, with no information about FW) can not manage non HDCP properly, so I was hoping for something that could. Also I have tested a lot of different brands, but they all suffer from weird bugs, and no version traceability. I have not tested the CAC-x330 yet. They are hard to find in stock!

PS:I see this one is limited to 225Mhz. What is the reason for this? Surely [email protected] 8bit color, 4:4:4 chroma needs more than that (285MHz using CVT-RB timing)

Hello 
where do you see that CAC-2330 it is limited to 225Mhz?

Hello, I have video card with HDMI 2.0 and my FullHD monitor has DP 1.2. Can I use this adapter to run the monitor at 1920x1080p @120 Hz?

on 01-02-2018

I found 225Mhz at your amazon pages..
“Support HDMI 225MHz/Gbps per channel bandwidth”
I guess this specs is wrong then?
Any news on the update? Can it be updated at all?

Hi Ost,
Sorry for the delay i am waiting for feedback for factory, will get back to you as soon as  have feedback for your questions.

Hi Jelen,

Yes this product supports 1920×1080 at 120Hz.
