Arasan Announces DPHY IP Core @2.5Gbps per lane with TSMC 28nm HPC Process

Arasan today announced the immediate availability of its MIPI DPHY IP Core Ver 1.2 that supports speeds of up to 2.5 Gbps per lane, on the TSMC 28nm HPC Process. The IP will soon be ported to TSMC’s latest HPC Plus Process. Arasan MIPI DPHY IP Core is backward compatible with previous versions of the specification with the ability to operate at 1.5 Gbps per lane, or lower when required.

The latest DPHY IP offering from Arasan utilizes the new Patent Pending DPHY architecture that optimizes the DPHY design for ultra low power and area.

“We utilized our 8+ years of experience to develop a new patent pending architecture for the DPHY. It will ensure our customers have access to the industry’s leading DPHY IP core in terms of power, area and reliability,” said Sridhar Shashidharan, Analog IP Architect at Arasan. Arasan taped out its first DPHY IP Core in 2008 and has since ported its DPHY to multiple nodes from 180nm to 28nm across all the major foundries. Arasan has the broadest library of DPHY IP Cores. Arasan’s stringent quality and reliability tests have qualified Arasan’s DPHY IP Core for use in automotive applications and is currently in production with multiple automotive SoC manufacturers. Arasan’s MIPI DSI and CSI IP Cores along with DPHY IP have also found their way into Drones and multiple IoT products available in the market today.

Arasan also offers the MIPI CSI and DSI Tx & Rx Controller IP Cores which work seamlessly together as part of Arasan Total MIPI IP Solutions.
