Next-generation display applications have an insatiable appetite for bandwidth. Using a combination of VESA Display Stream Compression (DSC) and MIPI DSI-2℠ technology, designers can achieve display resolutions up to 8K without compromise to video quality, battery life or cost. This presentation discusses a fully integrated, off-the-shelf display IP subsystem solution, consisting of Mixel (MIPI C-PHY℠/D-PHY℠ combo), Rambus (MIPI DSI-2® controller) and Hardent (VESA DSC) IP, that can deliver this state-of-the-art performance in a power-efficient and compact footprint.
