Arasan’s MIPI CSI-2® IP is compliant with the latest MIPI Camera Serial interface CSI-2 specifications. Arasan’s MIPI CSI-2® is a part of its MIPI Total Imaging Solution™ that also encompasses Arasan’s MIPI C-PHY℠/D-PHY℠ and Arasan’s MIPI I3C® interface and sensors. Our implementation provides seamless integration with other IPs and also makes efficient use of the high frequency signal pins for a minimal overhead to support both physical interfaces.
Arasan is the leading supplier of MIPI Alliance IP cores and its products are used by most first-tier imaging suppliers. Arasan has deep experience with Camera Serial Interface integration and system implementations combining both the analog PHY and digital controller IP to reduce design risk and provide a shorter time to market for mobile devices. The MIPI Camera Serial Interface is targeted for mobile platforms that integrate a camera sub-system requiring an interface and protocol that allows data to be transmitted from the camera to the host processor. The MIPI alliance created the Camera Serial Interface (CSI) specification to standardize this interface. The specification provides mobile device manufacturers a standardized high-performance interface that scales with the increased frame rates, resolution, and pixel depth of the imaging systems.
MIPI CSI-2 specification provides a scalable high-speed interface and low-speed control bus. While the MIPI CSI-3 specification has multiple enhancements like an integrated data and control bus that lowers pin count and a higher bandwidth interface to meet the next generation of mobile applications. Arasan Chip Systems provides both transmit and receive digital CSI controllers that directly integrate with an Arasan analog D-PHY or M-PHY. This provides customers a completely proven solution for their mobile applications. Extensive experience and compliance testing with all versions of MIPI Camera Serial Interface specifications make the choice of Arasan CSI-2, D-PHY, and CSI-3, M-PHY controller(s) the lowest risk approach for customers developing mobile devices.
