Arasan Chip Systems, a leading provider of semiconductor IP for mobile and automobile SoCs, announces its membership in the Xilinx Alliance Program with support for MIPI and storage IP cores on the Xilinx UltraScale+ family.
Dec 8, 2016. San Jose, CA. Arasan today announced participation in the Xilinx Industry Alliance Program with immediate support for MIPI camera, imaging and audio IP controllers, and the latest JEDEC eMMC 5.1 Host Controller.
All Arasan cores in the Xilinx Alliance Program have been implemented with Vivado Design Suite and UltraScale+ technology. The initial release includes MIPI CSI-2 host and device controllers, MIPI DSI host and device controllers, MIPI Soundwire Master controller, and the combination SD3.0 + SDIO3.0 + eMMC5.1 Host controller. Arasan IP cores for ONFI, UFS and USB are in design and will become available in the next few weeks.
Arasan’s Total IP Solutions have supported Xilinx FPGA for over ten years with hundreds of design wins. Arasan’s Hardware Validation Platform (HVP) utilizes Xilinx FPGAs from the Virtex, Kintex and Spartan families. The new Xilinx UltraScale+ family built on 16nm FinFET provides high-speed, low power MIPI D-PHY I/O support required for both MIPI CSI-2 and DSI digital IP cores.
“Xilinx UltraScale+ will allow more of FPGA users to achieve SoC performance with Arasan IP Cores,” said Ron Mabry, VP of Worldwide Sales.
"As a long time IP provider to Xilinx customers, we are pleased to have Arasan formally join our Alliance Program,” Hanneke Krekels, Xilinx Director for Test, Measurement & Emulation.
