CSI-2/DSI D-PHY Transmitter

Convert Parallel Formatted Data Streams to MIPI CSI-2/DSI

Mobile Industry Processor Interface (MIPI®) D-PHY 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 Serial 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. MIPI D-PHY is a practical PHY for typical camera and display applications.

Lattice’s CSI-2/DSI D-PHY Transmitter sub-module IP will help provide this conversion for Lattice CrossLink Family devices. This is useful for wearable, tablet, human machine interfacing, medical equipment and many other applications.


  • Compliant with MIPI DSI v1.1, MIPI CSI-2 v1.1 and MIPI D-PHY v1.1 specifications
  • Supports MIPI DSI and MIPI CSI-2 interfacing up to 10 Gb/s
  • Supports 1, 2 or 4 MIPI D-PHY data lanes
  • Supports non-burst mode with sync events for transmission of DSI packets only
  • Supports LP (low power) mode during vertical and horizontal blanking
