Some of the various MIPI specifications are now massively used in mobile (smartphone or tablet), especially the Multimedia related specs like Camera Serial Interface (CSI-2), Display Serial Interface (DSI) and D-PHY. You have to implement with CSI-2 or DSI controller a serial based physical interface, D-PHY specified up to… Read More


MIPI CSI-2 and DSI IP? Better with FPGA Prototyping Set

MIPI CSI-2 and DSI IP? Better with FPGA Prototyping Set
by Eric Esteve on 05-05-2015 at 7:00 am

Sourcing MIPI CSI-2 or DSI IP to a respected IP vendor is mandatory to build a peripheral IC or a SoC targeting mobile application as the chip maker simply can’t afford to do a re-spin because of Time-To-Market imperative. Buying this IP to a vendor also offering MIPI powered FPGA Prototyping Platforms is even better! Northwest Logic… Read More

The set of MIPI PHY specifications has enlarged during last night, as theMIPI Alliance has introduced the new C-PHY spec on September 17th, a physical layer interface for camera and display applications. “The MIPI C-PHY specification was developed to reduce the interface signaling rate to enable a wide range of high-performanceRead More


How To Connect Your Cell-phone Camera

How To Connect Your Cell-phone Camera
by Paul McLellan on 08-08-2013 at 5:31 pm

Your cell-phone contains a camera. In fact, it probably contains two: one forward facing for video-calls and one rear-facing for taking photographs and videos. The rear-facing one typically has much higher pixel count than the front-facing. The capabilities of cell-phone cameras are getting “good enough” that… Read More
