What data rates are supported?

MIPI A-PHY v1.0 supports five speed gears (2, 4, 8, 12 and 16 Gbps) to provide design flexibility.

A-PHY v1.1 doubles the total downlink bandwidth from 16 to 32 Gbps by adding support for Star Quad (STQ) cables that provide dual differential pairs of conductors within a single shielded jacket. This enables two A-PHY ports over a single cable, saving cost, weight and complexity compared with using two separate coaxial or shielded twisted pair cables.
