Northwest Logic and Mixel Delivering C-PHY/D-PHY Combo MIPI IP Solution
Northwest Logic’s CSI-2SM and DSI-2SM MIPI® Controller Cores and Mixel’s C-PHYSM/D-PHYSM Combo IP have been silicon proven in 28nm and deployed in 55nm and 65nm process nodes. C-PHY provides significantly more bandwidth (17.1 vs 10 Gbps) with the same pin count as D-PHY. “We are seeing significant interest and growing adoption of combo C-PHY/D-PHY support in customer designs,” said Ashraf Takla, Mixel’s President and CEO. “Northwest Logic and Mixel have collaborated to provide a wide range of fully integrated and validated MIPI controller + PHY solutions. These combined solutions have been used in more than 40 MIPI design with all tapeouts first time silicon successful,” said Brian Daellenbach, Northwest Logic’s President. Click here for details.
Northwest Logic’s GDDR6 Controller Core Now Available
