VC Verification IP for MIPI DSI

Synopsys VC Verification IP for MIPI Display Serial Interface (DSI) provides a comprehensive set of protocol, methodology, verification and productivity features, enabling users to achieve rapid verification of DSI Host and Device.

MIPI DSI VIP supports both High Speed (HS) transmission and Escape Mode. In Escape Mode it supports Ultra Low Power State (ULPS), Low Power Data Transmission (LPDT), Trigger messages and Bus Turnaround. It simplifies testbench development by enabling engineers to use a single VIP to verify multiple transmission modes across the full DSI protocol.
