Byte to Pixel Converter

Convert Parallel Data From a D-PHY Receiver into Pixel Format

Related Products

Due to the higher demand for better displays, bridging applications has become increasingly popular. One very common application interface is the Mobile Industry Processor Interface (MIPI®) D-PHY. It was developed primarily to support camera and display interconnections in mobile devices, and it has become the industry’s primary high-speed PHY solution for these applications in smartphones today. It is typically used in conjunction with MIPI Camera Serial Interface-2 (CSI-2) and MIPI Display Interface (DSI) protocol specifications. MIPI D-PHY meets the demanding requirements of low-power, low noise generation, and high noise immunity that mobile phone designs demand.

Lattice’s CrossLink IP is used to convert parallel data from a D-PHY receiver into pixel format. Aside from video packet conversion, this IP also generates camera/video control signals in the pixel domain based on CSI-2 or DSI synchronization packets.
