The MIPI DSI Device Controller is compliant to the MIPI DSI Specification Version 1.02 and, together with a MIPI D-PHY Version 1.0, offers up to a 4-lanehigh-speed/low powerserial connectivity between a DSI Host and the display panel. In command mode, for panels that contain frame buffers and display controllers, the DSI Device IP supports the DCS 1.02 command set over the DBI-2 interface. In video mode, for display modules without on-panel display controllers and frame buffers, the DSI Device IP supports pixel formats specified inthe MIPI DPI-2 specification.
Thus, Arasan DSI Device IP can support both DPI and DBI transactions over DSI. Using virtual channels, up to two DSI Device IP’s can be connected to Arasan’s DSI Host IP.
