Cairo, Egypt - December 16, 2015 - Today, Boost Valley has announced the release of the 1st version of its MIPI C-PHY Verification IP. The C-PHY is a part of MIPI portfolio of PHYs, it reduces the interface signaling rate to enable a wide range of high-performance and cost-optimized applications, such as very low-cost, low-resolution image sensors; sensors offering up to 60 megapixels; and even 4K display panels.
MIPI C-PHY uses 3-phase symbol encoding of about 2.28 bits per symbol to transmit data symbols on 3-wire lanes, or “trios,” with embedded clocking, facilitating longer trace reach and maximizing camera port configurations on mobile platforms. MIPI CSI-2 v1.3 with C-PHY provides performance gains, increased bandwidth delivery of 22.7 Gbps over four lanes at 2.5 Gsps (Giga-symbols per second) for realizing higher resolution, better color depth, and higher frame rates on image sensors while providing pin compatibility with MIPI D-PHY.
Boost Valley offers the C-PHY Verification IP as part of its InspiringVIP product line. Boost Valley addressed customers’ need for an easy reusable VIP with highly configurable test sequences to cover all complex and interactive scenarios for both PHY and PPI interfaces. Among its supported features is the injection and detection of all types of errors, protocol and timing checkers as well as the provision of a coverage model for the PHY. The underlying architecture is very efficiently coded in pure SystemVerilog. We promise our customers with a complete flexible solution that reduces the time needed to build their testbenches as well as the time needed to run and debug their designs. Our mission is to maximize our customers’ benefits by reducing their time to market as well as reducing the total engineering cost.
Currently C-PHY Verification IP is undergoing active evaluations from a number of early adopters.
The C-PHY VIP Product includes:
- Samples of Test-cases to test all supported C-PHY features.
- Built-in coverage analysis model.
- VIP User Manual
- C-PHY Master/Slave UVM Verification IP
- Sample ScoreBoard
Boost Valley offers a family of interface protocol VIPs, including I2C, SPI, I2S and SPDIF as well as Multimedia interface protocols VIPs such as HDMI 2.0. The family is growing soon to include more multimedia interfaces and more Bus/PHYs protocols.
