Synopsys discussed MIPI camera use-cases and advantages in vision-based automotive Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) applications such as radar, LiDAR and autonomous driving. Designers can benefit from the many advantages of MIPI camera interfaces, including low-latency and high-bandwidth; however, designers must also adhere to numerous stringent automotive standards while designing their SoCs. This presentation described automotive ADAS designs with MIPI camera interface solutions such as CSI-2℠ and D-PHY℠. The presentation also outlined other MIPI automotive protocols, including I3C® and DSI℠, as well as explained the benefits of using compliant ASIL Ready, ISO 26262 certified, and AEC-Q100 qualified MIPI IP.
