Mobile processors and displays are being used for new and exciting applications. A MIPI DSI to MIPI DSI passthrough design is sometimes required to provide an updated MIPI DCS configuration to a new type of display, for scaling or cropping to a new resolution, or as a redriver for systems that need to extend the distance between the processor and the display.
Another example is that mobile processors and displays are being used much further apart from each other in some systems and a MIPI DSI to MIPI DSI redriver is required as a result.
Lattice CrossLink is a programmable video interface bridging device capable of providing multiple MIPI DSI interfaces at up to 6 Gbps per PHY. This bridge is available as free IP is available in Lattice Diamond for allowing easy configuration and setup.
