Due to the higher demand for better displays, bridging applications has become increasingly popular. One very common application interface is the Flat Panel Display Link (FPD-LINK) interface. The Low Voltage Differential Signaling (LVDS) standard is commonly used for high-speed differential interface in consumer devices, industrial control, medical and automotive. The LVDS interface offers low voltage, low power and improved signal integrity advantages over single-ended technology. Applications such as Channel Link, FPD-Link, and Camera Link use LVDS interface for physical layer.

7:1 LVDS interface is a popular standard for source synchronous interfaces which consist of multiple data bits and clocks. Typically, 1 channel of 7:1 LVDS interface consists of 5 LVDS pairs (1 clock, 4 data) depending on the data type it supports.

Latticeā€™s OpenLDI/FPD-LINK/LVDS Receiver Interface IP translates video streams from a processor with an OpenLDI/FDP-Link/LVDS interface connection to pixel clock domain, which can be used to interface with other application interface such as MIPI DSI Display Interface.
