Mixel supports D-PHY v2.5 up to 18Gbps aggregate data rate

Mixel®, a provider of mixed-signal intellectual property (IP), has announced that its MIPI® D-PHYSM IP compliant to MIPI D-PHY v2.5 specification is now available, the company said.

MIPI D-PHY supports MIPI Camera Serial Interface 2 (CSI-2SM), as well as Display Serial Interface (DSISM) and DSI-2SM. The MIPI D-PHY v2.5 specification was recently adopted by the MIPI Alliance in October 2019 and Mixel is the first IP provider to make this IP available to its customers.

Mixel´s MIPI D-PHY v2.5 IP is a high-frequency, low-power, low-cost, physical layer. It can be configured as a MIPI master or MIPI slave, support camera interface CSI-2 v3.0 and display interface DSI-2 v1.1 and is backwards compatible with previous generations of each specification.

Mixel D-PHY v2.5 supports speeds up to 4.5Gbps per lane, an aggregate data rate of 18Gbps. It supports all v2.5 features not available in previous versions of the specifications such as Spread Spectrum Clocking (SSC) and transmit equalization (de-emphasis). It also supports new power saving functionality such as HS-TX half swing mode and the HS-RX unterminated mode. The new Alternate LP Mode, suitable for IoT applications with long channels, is also supported, enabling Fast Bus Turnaround.

Mixel´s D-PHY IP has been silicon-proven in 9 different nodes at 8 different foundries in multiple configurations including a patented RX+ configuration that allows for full-speed, in-system production testing with minimal overhead.

Mixel is a provider of mixed-signal IPs and offers a wide portfolio of high-performance mixed-signal connectivity IP solutions. Mixel´s mixed-signal portfolio includes PHYs and SerDes, such as MIPI D-PHYSM, MIPI M-PHY®, MIPI C-PHYSM, LVDS, and many dual mode PHY supporting multiple standards. Mixel was founded in 1998 and is headquartered in San Jose, CA, with global operation to support a worldwide customer base. For more information, visit www.mixel.com.
