VC Verification IP for MIPI CSI-2

Synopsys VC Verification IP for MIPI CSI-2 (Camera Serial Interface) provides a comprehensive set of protocol, methodology, verification and productivity features enabling users to achieve rapid verification of MIPI CSI TX and RX devices. It also includes VIP for MIPI D-PHY and C-PHY for physical layer verification. CSI-2 supports data-type interleaving frames, normal frames and Virtual Channel ID interleaving frames. It simplifies testbench development by enabling engineers to use a single VIP to verify multiple transmission modes across the full CSI-2 protocol.
