The DesignWare® MIPI CSI-2 Host and Device Controller IP solutions are fully verified and configurable controllers that implement all protocol functions defined in the MIPI CSI-2 specification. The IP solutions provide high-speed serial interface between an application or image processor and image sensors. The DesignWare CSI-2 Host and Device Controllers can be configured to handle up to 8 data lanes or 3 trios and can support data transfers from 80 Mb/s in low-power mode to 3.5Gs/s per trio and 4.5Gbps per lane. The controllers handle all packet encoding and supports all CSI-2 specified data formats including: general frame or digital interlaced video with or without accurate sync timing and virtual channel interleaving. The DesignWare CSI-2 Host and Device Controllers support wide PHY Protocol Interface (PPI) for reliable high-speed data transfer. The controllers are ASIL B Ready ISO 26262 certified, meeting the stringent requirements of automotive functional safety applications.
Synopsys’ DesignWare MIPI CSI-2 Host and Device Controllers, I3C Controller, C-PHY/D-PHY, and D-PHY provide a complete camera interface IP solution that enables designers to lower their risk and cost of integrating the MIPI CSI-2 interface into image sensors, application processors, bridge integrated circuits (ICs) and multimedia coprocessors, while improving time-to-market.
