Enabling Higher Data Rates and Variety of Channels with MIPI D-PHY (Synopsys)

R&D Manager Synopsys & MIPI PHY Working Group Vice Chair
4:15 PM

Abstract: MIPI D-PHY is the de-facto standard for camera and display connectivity using low-latency transitions between high-speed and low-power modes with high noise immunity and high jitter tolerance. This presentation briefly describes MIPI D-PHY’s flexibility, speed, power and cost benefits for cameras and displays in mobile applications. Today, automotive infotainment and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) such as image, radar and lidar are also taking advantage of MIPI D-PHY’s unique benefits to allow higher data transmission over longer channels. In addition, camera and display applications based on D-PHY are seeing adoption in applications beyond mobile, like consumer, computing and multimedia. This presentation illustrates common use cases, and details how MIPI D-PHY can operate at 2.5 Mbps over multiple lanes to enable higher performance. The presentation will also give a brief roadmap of the D-PHY specification.
