Many traditional processors have a CMOS interface. However, many innovations in mobile image sensor technology have been developed in recent years and most of these sensors have MIPI CSI-2 interfaces. Many new applications want to leverage mobile innovations while utilizing traditional processors with specific requirements and capabilities.
Lattice CrossLink is a programmable video interface bridging device capable of converting image sensors with MIPI CSI-2 interface to CMOS at up to 6 Gbps. This bridge is available as free IP is available in Lattice Diamond for allowing easy configuration and setup.
