Jan 10, 2017, San Jose, CA: Arasan today announced the immediate availability of its MIPI I3C Master & Slave IP cores compliant to the just released MIPI I3C Specification Ver 1.0.
MIPI I3C is a chip-to-chip interface that can connect all sensors in a device to the application processor. It consolidates the features of i2c, SPI and UART into a simple two wire interface. The specification achieves clock rates up to 12.5 MHz and provides options for higher performance, high-data rate modes. Another key advantage is that it can be implemented using standard I/O’s on a CMOS process. I3C is also a low power interface using a fraction of the power consumed by i2c for the same performance.
Arasan’s I3C IP Cores are fully configurable across multiple parameters through simple scripts based on the customer’s specifications making it suitable for a variety of Sensor applications. Arasan’s I3C IP has been validated at the RTL and System Level. The Total IP Solution for I3C includes software drivers and HDK’s in addition to the IP Cores.
Arasan I3C has already been licensed by early adopters and semiconductors incorporating our IP are expected to hit the market this year. “Arasan has been a contributing member of the MIPI Association since 2005 and our expertise in delivering IP solutions for the MIPI market for years.,” said Sam Beal, Marketing Director at Arasan.
