March 17, 2021, San Jose, CA -- Arasan Chip Systems, a leading provider of semiconductor IP for mobile and automobile SoCs, today announces the immediate availability of its MIPI C-PHY/ D-PHY Combo IP which is compliant with the latest MIPI C-PHY v2.0 and MIPI D-PHY v2.5 specifications. The upgraded MIPI C-PHY / D-PHY Combo IP is seamlessly integrated with Arasan’s own MIPI CSI-2® IP and MIPI DSI® IP as part of Arasan’s Total IPTM for MIPI Imaging and Display Solutions. This 2’nd generation of Arasan’s MIPI C-PHY/D-PHY combo IP has been re-engineered for ultra low power consumption leveraging the advantages of the FINFET Technology.
Arasan’s MIPI C-PHY v2.0 / D-PHY v2.5 combo IP delivers 6 Gbps per lane for a max throughput of 24Gbps in D-PHY mode and 6Gsps per trio for a max throughput of 41Gbps in C-PHY mode. Other significant feature upgrades include:
- When used with Arasan’s MIPI CSI-2 or MIPI DSI-2®, the MIPI C-PHY/D-PHY combo IP offers built-in test capabilities including PRBS generator and internal loopback to support cost effective tests for high volume manufacturing.
- New power saving HS-Tx half swing mode for D-PHY,
- On-board programmable PLL with Spread Spectrum Clocking, with or without deskew calibrations and equilizations for different operating speeds of D-PHY,Power management functions such as reduced HS-TX swing modes and unterminated HS-RX mode.
- It supports ALP Mode for different applications with long channels tha t enables fast lane turnaround mode to increase bandwidth of communication in the reverse direction of the MIPI link. The ALP mode is key to the CSI-2® Unified Serial Linking capability, which decreases interface wires and helps to allow a more extensive range.
Arasan’s MIPI C-PHY v2.0 / D-PHY v2.5 combo IP is available to license immediately. For availability, lead time and purchase of Test Chips (on TSMC FINFET) along with the HDK programmed with our CSI-2 or DSI-2 IP cores, please contact Arasan firstname.lastname@example.org
