Integrating advanced peripherals such as multi-megapixel cameras and higher resolution screens into next generation mobile, IoT and automotive 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 Camera Serial Interface (CSI-2).
The DesignWare® MIPI CSI-2 Device Controller IP is a fully verified and configurable controller IP that implements all protocol functions defined in the MIPI CSI-2 specification. The IP provides a high-speed serial interface between an application or image processor and image sensors.
Synopsys’ DesignWare MIPI CSI-2 Device Controller IP along with DesignWare MIPI CSI-2 Host Controller IP, DesignWare MIPI D-PHY IP and DesignWare MIPI I3C Controller IP 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.
