The Experts

We never tell you to “read the manual.”

Working together to advance our craft, we’re always looking for new ways to bring more value to our product and our customers.

We didn’t get into this business to dump our IP specs on clients, show them the number to customer support, and run. We built Trilinear to solve hard problems, bolster your design cycle, work through your challenges, and stand side-by-side with you through implementation. At the end of the day, we shorten the killchain because we’re system designers who became DisplayPort IP experts.
