DisplayPort is a digital display interface developed by a consortium of PC and chip manufacturers (particularly Maxell, Lattice, Philips and Sony) and standardized by the Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA).

DisplayPort interface is primarily used to connect a video source to a display device such as a computer monitor, and it can also carry audio, USB, and other forms of data.

DisplayPort was designed to replace VGA, DVI, and FPD-Link. The interface is backward compatible with other interfaces, such as HDMI and DVI, through the use of either active or passive adapters.

DisplayPort is combined PCI Express and the USB Type-C as part of Thunderbolt 3.x Specification.
