Rambus’, formerly Northwest Logic, and Mixel have created a new CSI-HDMI demo that features the Omnivision 13850 camera outputing 4K video over 4 MIPI data lanes, each running at 1.2 Gbit/s. The video runs through cables to Mixel’s D-PHY Test Chip. The D-PHY Test Chip receives the MIPI video stream and sends it to a Xilinx Virtex-7 located on the Xilinx VC707 board. Northwest Logic’s CSI-2 Rx Controller Core in the Virtex-7 processes the MIPI Camera Serial Interface protocol and extracts the video pixels. These pixels are then Beyer processed, color and gamma corrected and sent via HDMI to the 1080P display.
