Lattice Just Made It Easier for OEMs to Introduce the Latest in MIPI Camera and Display Capabilities

HILLSBORO, OR -- (Marketwired) -- Aug 28, 2013 -- Lattice Semiconductor Corporation (NASDAQ: LSCC) today announced three new complete reference designs that will make it easier for electronic OEMs to deliver media-rich experiences to their end users by taking advantage of low-cost, industry-standard MIPI (Mobile Industry Processor Interface) camera, application processor, and display technologies. These latest FPGA-based reference designs from Lattice enable OEMs to quickly build and roll out next-generation products that are low cost, highly reliable, and consume low power as they deliver the latest in display, image and motion features.

Using these new reference designs, designers can use image sensors that are not designed for the mobile market. As an example, a high end smartphone could incorporate a DSLR type camera. In this case, the image sensor is bridged to a MIPI-based applications processor via a Lattice FPGA. The inverse is also true where MIPI-based components can be linked to non-MIPI based processors or SoCs.

"Increasingly, for OEMs to be competitive they need to provide end-users with a media-rich experience across all their electronic devices. To deliver on this, manufacturers would like to leverage mobile display, applications processor, or camera components, but the interfaces for these low cost system components often present a challenge," said Ted Marena, Director of Solutions Marketing at Lattice. "The fact is, until MIPI becomes the dominant interface for the broad market, customers are going to need a bridge between different interface technologies. Not only does Lattice provide the perfect FPGA technology to adapt to different interfaces, now we provide complete reference designs that make adding MIPI to any system an easy to achieve reality."

Marena will be a presenting at the Qualcomm Uplinq 2013 conference's Hardware Day on Sept. 3, where he'll talk about how Lattice's MIPI solutions enable designers to connect a broad range of display and camera components to the latest MIPI-based Snapdragon™ processors.

  • MIPI DSI Transmit Bridge: Enables a Lattice FPGA to drive a DSI-receiving device such as a DSI display.

  • MIPI DSI Receive Bridge: Allows an application processor to interface to a screen that is not designed for mobile applications.

  • MIPI CSI-2 Transmit Bridge: Provides the conversion bridge logic required to enable an applications processor to interface to a non-CSI-2 image sensor.

  • MIPI CSI-2 Receive Bridge (previously announced): Allows a mobile CSI-2 image sensor to interface to an embedded image signal processor.
