This presentation will cover the deployment of MIPI D-PHY℠ in an autonomous driving use-case and the advantages of using MIPI specifications in functional safety applications.

While all automotive system-on-chip (SoC) designs must meet additional safety requirements, Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and autonomous driving have even more stringent standards requirements. This presentation will cover Renesas’s high level system design, how Mixel was able to meet Renesas's requirements with its MIPI D-PHY CSI-2® TX+ IP, and how advanced testability features are critical capabilities for this application. In addition, it will include some of the unique challenges when incorporating mixed-signal IP as Safety Elements out of Context (SEooC) compliant to ISO 26262 and ASIL-B.
