CSI-2 Controller Core

The Rambus 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. For automotive safety-critical applications, an ASIL-B version of the core is available and includes a Safety Manual, Design Failure Mode & Effects Analysis (DFMEA) and Failure Mode, Effects and Diagnostic Analysis (FMEDA).

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.
