DesignWare MIPI UniPro Controller IP

The Unified Protocol (UniPro) specification defines a layered protocol for interconnecting devices and components within mobile device systems. Applicable to a wide range of component types including application processors, co-processors, and modems, as well as different types of data traffic including control messages, bulk data transfer and packetized streaming. Implementing the UniPro specification reduces time-to-market and design costs by simplifying the interconnection of peripherals. In addition, the re-useable, extensible nature of the specification simplifies new feature implementation.

Synopsys’ DesignWare® MIPI® UniPro Controller IP provides the capability to control the UniPro link over an M-PHY link. The MIPI UniPro Controller is capable of transporting any kind of data between applications like camera, display, and memory devices on the same physical link. When combined with the multi-gear DesignWare MIPI M-PHY IP, Synopsys provides a single vendor UniPro-based IP solution, enabling designers to easily integrate the JEDEC UFS, MIPI CSI-3, and MIPI DSI-2 host or device implementation in application processors and peripheral ICs.
