Arasan Announces The Industry’s First MIPI SLIMBus v2.0 IP Core

Arasan Chip Systems, Inc. (“Arasan”), a leading provider of Total IP Solutions for SoC providers, announces availability of IP compliant with MIPI SLIMbus® standard v 2.0 released by the MIPI association on November 4, 2015.

MIPI SLIMbus is used to interconnect audio components in mobile and mobile-influenced devices. The new release, v2.0, adds new features that address the market’s needs for increasingly sophisticated audio performance while simplifying component integration for manufacturers. MIPI SLIMbus v2.0 is also backward compatible with previous versions of the specification.

The v2.0 release introduces three key features.

  • A new approach for multiline configuration that increases bandwidth scalability.
  • Multichannel capability that can transmit multiple, phase-aligned audio streams between multiple devices and peripherals; the multichannel feature can also support phase-coherency, improved direct memory access (DMA) efficiency, and higher bandwidth via a reduced number of ports to simplify integration and improve use of limited board space in a device.
  • A segment distribution technique that uses new secondary data transport lines to maximize the use of available bandwidth for asynchronous data transmissions; this feature can improve performance for pushed or pulled data, software downloads, audio uploads or bulk data transport.

As the industry’s first supporter of SLIMBus, Arsan is pleased to announce support for the new update. With the recently announced Soundwire standard along with our long established i2s controller, Arasan is the leading provider of IP for Audio Interface Standards.

“Our Slimbus IP core is the industry standard with a large installed base. The rollout of this IP to our customers will enable faster adoption of the Slimbus 2.0 standard” added Ron Mabry, VP of Sales at Arasan.

“We are pleased to see Arasan continue their decade-long membership and contributions to MIPI Alliance with their recent support for MIPI SLIMbus v2.0” said Peter Lefkin, Managing Director, MIPI Alliance.
