SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 2, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Arasan Chip Systems, a leading provider of semiconductor IP for the IoT), mobile and automobile SoC’s announces the immediate availability of its MIPI Soundwire PHY I/O IP. With this IP, Arasan now provides a Total IP solution for MIPI Soundwire in compliance with the latest Soundwire Specifications v1.2
MIPI SoundWire protocol is a simple, unified audio interface that has evolved to numerous markets, especially mobile applications to replace several high pin-count connections, allowing for scalability and flexibility, improved power consumption, and decreased latency. MIPI SoundWire is ideal for a wide range of devices such as personal computers, high-end cellphones, headphones, and hearing aids, ranging from low-cost, low-bandwidth peripherals to high-performance audio codec.
Arasan’s Soundwire Phy v1.2 comprises PHY Host IP with 1 clock lane, 1 data lane and PHY Device IP with 1 clock lane, 3 data lanes. It seamlessly integrates with Arasan’s Soundwire Host and Device Controller. Arasan’s Soundwire PHY features a programmable delay for high-Z to driving data timing and for accommodation of time to enable Data output signal edge on Clock input, capability for both synchronous and self-timed turn off data output, one-shot with programmable pulse width for self-timed turn off data output. It supports 1.8V +/-10% supply for IOs and 0.8V +/-10% supply for core.
Arasan’s Soundwire PHY I/O IP is silicon proven and immediately available for FinFET process nodes.
Arasan Chip Systems, a contributing member of the MIPI Association since 2005 is a leading provider of IP for mobile storage and mobile connectivity interfaces with over a billion chips shipped with our MIPI IP. Arasan’s high-quality, silicon-proven, Total IP Solutions include digital IP, AMS PHY IP, Verification IP, HDK and Software. Arasan has a focused product portfolio targeting mobile SoC’s.
