DesignWare IP Prototyping Kits for MIPI CSI-2 & DSI
The DesignWare® IP Prototyping Kits for MIPI CSI-2 Host and MIPI DSI Host center around a complete, out-of-the-box reference design that consists of a validated IP configuration and necessary SoC integration logic, implemented on Synopsys’ HAPS®-DX FPGA-based prototyping system.
With a proven reference design for the IP, designers can be instantly productive, enabling them to accelerate the integration of IP into their target SoC, optimize the IP configuration, and develop drivers and software applications with real world I/Os and hardware. The prototyping kit takes advantage of Synopsys’ HAPS Developer eXpress (HAPS-DX) system to provide prototyping hardware and software automation tools. Scripts and configuration files enable fast iteration.
The IP Prototyping Kit can be used as a physical target for early software bring-up, debug and test concurrently with SoC development. Out-of-the-box support for Linux OS and Windows ensures that software developers are up and running instantly and can focus on the IP specific software (e.g., drivers, bootcode, firmware). The kits plugs into existing software tool chains and interfaces seamlessly with popular embedded software debuggers, providing system-wide debug and analysis capabilities.
Rapid MIPI CSI-2 Host IP Prototyping & Integration with DesignWare IP Prototyping Kits
Reduce MIPI CSI-2 Host IP prototyping and integration effort using DesignWare IP Prototyping Kits. The kits provide the essential hardware and software elements needed to start implementing the IP in an SoC in minutes. The included simulation testbench, reference drivers, and application examples enable designers to start their own IP software development right out of the box.
