Mixel's multi-standard PHY IP enables world's smallest 1080p microdisplay for AR and HUD applications

Mixel®, a provider of mixed-signal intellectual property (IP), and Compound Photonics US Corporation (Compound Photonics), a provider of compact high-resolution microdisplay solutions for Augmented Reality (AR) and Mixed Reality (MR) applications, has announced that Mixel´s MIPI® IP has been successfully integrated into the Compound Photonics CP1080p26 series of microdisplays, the company said.

The CP1080p26 displays feature an industry-leading pixel pitch measuring at 3.015μm. Developers can now take advantage of the high resolution and small form factor of the CP1080p26 to create innovative products such as AR and MR smart glasses and automotive holographic heads-up displays (HUD).

Mixel provided Compound Photonics with the MIPI C-PHYSM/D-PHYSM combo and controller IP. Compound Photonics achieved first-time silicon success with this IP and is now in full production. The MIPI solution includes two IP products delivered fully integrated and validated: Mixel´s C-PHY/D-PHY receiver and a 64-bit MIPI DSI-2SM Peripheral Controller Core.

The DSI-2 Peripheral Controller Core is developed by Northwest Logic, a Rambus company and active participant in Mixel´s MIPI Central Ecosystem Partnership, which brings together best-in-class MIPI ecosystem stakeholders. By leveraging Mixel´s C/D-PHY multi-standard combo solution, the CP1080p26 has the flexibility to support interfaces for both the camera and display, with enhanced bandwidth and capacity of C-PHY as needed.

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.
