DesignWare MIPI DSI Host and Device Controller IP Solutions
Integrating advanced peripherals such as multi-megapixel cameras and high-resolution screens into next generation devices brings new challenges to the industry in terms of power, time-to-market and overall system costs. To address these challenges, the MIPI® Alliance defines and promotes system-on-chip (SoC) and peripheral device interface specifications, such as the Display Serial Interface (DSI).
Compliant with the latest MIPI DSI specification, DesignWare® MIPI DSI Host and Device Controllers are fully-verified configurable IP solutions that provide a high-speed serial interface between an application processor and displays.
DesignWare MIPI DSI Host Controller IP is also available with VESA DSC encoder. The integrated and configurable controller IP implements all protocol functions defined in the latest MIPI DSI and VESA DSC specifications. The IP reduces data transmission bandwidth to enable quad HD or 4K displays with refresh rates at 60Hz or higher. The DSC encoder is fully verified in a universal verification methodology (UVM) environment with complete code and functional coverages. It uses a comprehensive test image library to check against the VESA DSC v1.1 reference C model.
Synopsys’ DesignWare MIPI DSI Host Controller IP, DesignWare MIPI Host Controller IP with VESA DSC encoder, DesignWare MIPI Device Controller IP and DesignWare MIPI D-PHY IP provide a complete display interface IP solution that enables designers to lower the risk and cost of integrating the IP into application processors, display bridge ICs and multimedia co-processors, while improving the time-to-market demand of mobile, IoT and automotive SoCs.
