CSI-2 Controller Core

The Northwest Logic CSI-2 controller core is a second-generation MIPI CSI-2 core optimized for high performance, low power and small size. The core is fully compliant with the CSI-2 standard and implements all three layers defined therein: Pixel to Byte Packing, Low Level Protocol, and Lane Management.

Next-Generation Displays: An Integrated IP Solution from Mixel, Rambus & Hardent

Displays for next-generation smartphones, AR/VR devices, and automotive systems all require more bandwidth than ever before. Using a combination of VESA Display Stream Compression (DSC) with the MIPI Display Serial Interface (DSI-2) technology, designers can achieve display resolutions up to 8K without compromise to video quality, battery life or cost.

From Data Center to End Device: AI/ML Inferencing with GDDR6

Created to support 3D gaming on consoles and PCs, GDDR packs performance that makes it an ideal solution for AI/ML inferencing. As inferencing migrates from the heart of the data center to the network edge, and ultimately to a broad range of AI-powered IoT devices, GDDR memory’s combination of high bandwidth, low latency, power efficiency and suitability for high-volume applications will be increasingly important. The latest iteration of the standard, GDDR6 memory, pushes data rates to 18 gigabits per second and device bandwidths to 72 gigabytes per second.
