Mixel Inc. and Northwest Logic have released a unified MIPI platform incorporating the Mixel Physical Layer (D-PHYS) and the Northwest Logic CSI-2 and DSI controllers. The platform enables customers to integrate MIPI IP from a single source together with their own RTL.

The companies also released a MIPI hardware demonstration and development platform. This platform consists of Mixel's MIPI Interface Card, an off-the-shelf FPGA board, third-party MIPI camera and displays, and a complete MIPI reference design, including MIPI Controller Cores from Northwest Logic.

The MIPI interface card is a FPGA Mezzanine Connector (FMC)-based daughter card, which incorporates the Mixel 2nd generation D-PHY test chip. The Mixel D-PHY is fully compliant with the MIPI 1.0 D-PHY specifications and is built in a modular fashion using Mixel's LegorithmicTM approach. The Mixel 2nd generation D-PHY IP operates up to 1.5Gbit/s in anticipation of the 1.5 version of the D-PHY specifications. The D-PHY IP is available in various configurations, is fully characterised, and is available on multiple foundry process nodes. Mixel also provides its customers with the Clock Management Unit IP, incorporating a high performance, low jitter, PLL and timing circuitry.

Northwest Logic provides a complete MIPI reference design for the platform. This reference design includes Northwest Logic's MIPI Controller Cores. These controller cores support CSI-2 and DSI operation in both transmit and receive directions, all data types and formats, and a variety of user interfaces. The cores are delivered fully integrated and verified with Mixel's D-PHY along with a comprehensive MIPI verification environment.

The full solution is available for customers to start chip designs today.
