Hmm... I can't believe they have implemented this without a CPU, memory and software... Unless they built a thin client in an ASIC/FPGA... but that would be stupid... what a pile of marketing bunkum.

It's conceivable. You can get off-the-shelf USB->VGA adapters, and there are proprietary schemes for encapsulating USB messages in ethernet frames or IP datagrams. I don't know if any of those have been integrated down to the chip level yet. If it's over IP then you'll need at least a DHCP client, which most likely means a small embedded processor.

But in any case, I'm not sure I fancy running all that down an ASDL line...
