Arasan Chip Systems, the leading provider of MIPI Camera and Display IP Solutions, announces support for MIPI DSI-2 v1.0 with support for MIPI C-PHY v1.0 and MIPI D-PHY v2.0.

'Our DSI IP in combination with our D-PHY analog IP offers early adopters the fastest time to market while ensuring compliance,' said Sam W. Beal, Director of Marketing, Arasan Chip Systems.

Arasan’s DSI IP Core is compliant to the MIPI DSI-2 v1.0 specification and is seamlessly integrated with the MIPI CPHY and MIPI D-PHY. The three lane C-PHY configuration and the four lane D-PHY configurations support up to 17Gbps and 18Gbps, respectively. Display resolutions from 1080p at 240fps to UHD (4K) at 60fps are supported with these standards. Higher resolutions are obtainable with additional D-PHY lanes or by using compression.

DSI-2 v1.0 extends Arasan’s 13 years of MIPI IP support to the next generation of high-resolution cameras and displays. “Our DSI IP in combination with our D-PHY analog IP offers early adopters the fastest time to market while ensuring compliance,” said Sam W. Beal, Director of Marketing, Arasan Chip Systems.

Arasan announced its first D-PHY IP Core in 2007, and has the Industry's broadest portfolio of D-PHY IP with over 19 nodes on 5 foundries from 180nm to 28nm, including multiple automotive grade nodes.

The Total MIPI DSI-2 IP Solution includes DSI-2 v1.0 transmitter and receiver controllers, the C-PHY v1.0, and C-PHY + D-PHY v1.2 combination physical interface. The D-PHY v2.0 physical interface will be available immediately after release of the specification by MIPI. (expected in early 2016).
