Arasan announces the immediate availability of its MIPI CSI-2 v2.1 IP supporting CSI-2 v1.2 to v2.1 and D-PHY v2.1

Arasan Chip Systems, a leading provider of semiconductor IP for mobile and automobile SoCs today announced the immediate availability of it’s 2’nd Generation MIPI D-PHY IP with Ultra Low Power Consumption for TSMC 22nm SoC’s.

July 17, 2019, San Jose, CA: Arasan Chip Systems announces the immediate availability its MIPI D-PHY IP supporting speeds of upto 2.5 gbps for TSMC 22nm SoC designs. The MIPI D-PHY IP is seamlessly integrated with Arasan own CSI Tx, CSI Rx, DSI Tx and DSI Rx as part of its Total MIPI Imaging and Display IP Solution.

Compared to 28nm high-performance compact (28HPC) technology, 22ULP provides 10% area reduction with more than 30% speed gain or more than 30% power reduction.

Arasan’s D-PHY IP Compliant to MIPI D-PHY Spec v1.2 reuses multiple blocks from our silicon proven 28nm technology to reduce risk while the design is optimized to leverage the TSMC 22nm technology node for reduction in area and power compared to our previous designs.

Arasan has been a contributing member to the MIPI Association 2005 with over a billion chips shipped with our MIPI IP. Our MIPI D-PHY / C-PHY Combo IP is proven on our own TSMC 28nm Test Chip, has been licensed by multiple customers since 2016 and validated along with our CSI IP and DSI IP with 3’rd Party VIP as a Total IP Solution.Our MIPI CSI, DSI, DPHY and CPHY IP are also used in compliance and production testers further attesting the the quality and compliance of Arasan IP.

The MIPI D-PHY IP supporting the higher speeds is also available off the shelf in 28nm, 16nm and 12nm nodes. 7nm will be available in Q4 2019.

A DPHY / CPHY Combo HDK based on Arasan’s TSMC 28nm ASIC is also available to licensees of Arasan’s DPHY IP or CPHY IP to prototype their Display or Imaging products before going to production. Customers can license with confidence in our MIPI D-PHY / C-PHY Combo IP knowing they can prototype with the real TSMC 28nm silicon which is used in a MIPI Compliance Tester to test for MIPI CSI, DSI, D-PHY and C-PHY Standards Compliance. We are compliance!
