Today an SoC cannot be without multiple IP blocks integrated together in the most optimal manner. In such an environment, it’s natural that interoperability and configurability of an IP get prime considerations to achieve the best PPA (Power, Performance and Area) for the SoC containing that IP. While PPA is a basic criterion … Read More

… in 2019. At that time, the total Interface IP market is expected to weight between $900 million and $1 billion. If we want to understand this IP market segment dynamics, we have to look at protocol based products like USB (from USB 1.0 defined in 1996 at 12 Mbit/s to USB 3.1 supporting 10 Gbps data rate) or PCI Express (from PCIe gen-1… Read More

MIPI set of specifications (supported by dedicated controllers) are completed by a PHY function, the D-PHY or the M-PHY function. The D-PHY was the first to be released, and most of the MIPI functions supported in a smartphone we are using today probably still use a D-PHY, but the latest MIPI specifications have been developed based… Read More
