CSI-2 Receiver

Arasan MIPI CSI-2 Receiver v1.3 IP Core


The Arasan MIPI CSI-2 Receiver IP Core functions as a MIPI Camera Serial Interface (CSI-2 Combo) Receiver, which interfaces between a peripheral device (Camera module) and a host processor (baseband, application engine).

Arasan provides two CSI-2 Receivers: MIPI CSI-2 v1.2 for D-PHY physical interface only, and MIPI CSI-2 v1.3 for the new MIPI C-PHY v1.0 and D-PHY v.1.1, v1.2, and a future v2.0. Arasan offers the C-PHY in a combination configuration that supports both C-PHY interfaces and D-PHY interfaces. Our implementation makes efficient use of the high frequency signally pins for a minimal overhead to support both physical interfaces.

The CSI-2 Combo Receiver IP communicates over a D-PHY (or) C-PHY serial link to image processing block, part of the application engine. The Arasan MIPI CSI-2 Receiver IP provides a standard, scalable, low-power, high-speed interface that supports a wide range of higher image resolutions.
