Arasan has unveiled its MIPI SLIMbus to the MIPI SoundWire specification to allow serial audio designs. SoundWire is intended for small, cost-sensitive audio peripherals that include modern digital class-D amplifiers and digital microphones.

The Total MIPI SoundWire IP solution offers early adopters the fastest path to adoption of this latest standard by providing a comprehensive IP package that includes the Verilog RTL source code for Master & Slave fully validated for compliance with the standard, a comprehensive test environment with a compliance suite for verification of the IP package, a SoundWire hardware development kit (HDK) for FPGA prototyping, a SoundWire protocol analyser and a complete SoundWire software stack, the company indicated.

The IP solution features unified transport of PDM and PCM data well suited for modern digital audio solutions; transporting all of payload data channels, control information and setup commands over a single two-pin interface; clock scaling and optional multiple data lanes to give wide flexibility in data rate to match system requirements; and lower clock frequency, and hence lower power consumption, by use of DDR data transmission.

The Total MIPI SoundWire IP solution is fully configurable for a number of options such as data ports, SoundWire bus lanes and audio sample widths to meet a range of audio applications. The Arasan Total MIPI SoundWire IP solution addresses a multitude of audio applications for smartphones, tablets, mobile PCs and other devices.

The MIPI SoundWire interface provides a scalable, yet low complexity and low power two-wire interface. It fills a gap between PDM devices with limited programmability and complex PCM devices based on SLIMbus or the classic I2S/I2C combination that require several more pins.

Arasan SoundWire Total IP solution is available to license immediately. Arasan is offering promotional rates for early adopters and existing customers who wish to license its Total IP Solution for MIPI SoundWire.
