The Northwest Logic DSI-2 Controller Core is Rambus' second generation DSI controller core. It is further optimized for high performance, low power and small size.
It is available in 64 and 32 bit core widths. The 64 bit core width can support 1-8 D-PHY data lanes (8 bit PPI) and 1-4 CPHY lanes (16 bit PPI). The 32 bit core width an support 1-4 DPHY data lanes (8 bit PPI) and 1-2 C-PHY lanes (16 bit PPI) The core implements all three layers defined by the DSI-2 standard: Pixel to Byte Packing, Low Level Protocol, and Lane Management and is fully compliant with the DSI-2 standard. Separate Host (Tx) and Peripheral (Rx) versions of the core are provided.
The core’s native interface provides an easy-to-use data and control/status packet interfaces. The data interfaces provided with optional DPI and DBI-B/C interface adapters. The core supports command and video modes and all data types. The core is delivered fully integrated and verified with the user’s target D/C-PHY. Contact Rambus for a complete list of supported PHYs.
The core is also provided with the DSI-2 Testbench which provides a DSI-2 Bus Functional Model.
Rambus offers a DSI-2 Demonstration System which includes an FPGA Board, MIPI Interface Card and MIPI Display. Contact Rambus for more information.
