Many new applications such as augmented reality, depth perception and gesture recognition require multiple image sensor interfaces to connect to the application processor with minimal latency between frames. Lattice Crosslink can interface to multiple MIPI CSI-2 image sensors and aggregate data to a single CSI-2 output. Aggregation can be performed by stitching the image sensor frames together in a side by side configuration or arbitrating data packets based on virtual channel.
Lattice CrossLink is a programmable video interface bridging device capable of providing multiple MIPI CSI-2 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.
