Architecture is constantly evolving – changing style, form and application. But through all of its evolutions from physical to digital, architecture matters. The physical and digital world blur as sensors translate activity into data. Ubiquitous sensors load today’s internet with boundless volumes of data. This requires a sophisticated architecture to optimize performance with minimal power. An architecture that supports the massive amount of data being captured. Secured. Moved.
The continued proliferation of power-efficient mobile technologies, cloud computing, and pervasive connectivity has fostered an increasingly connected world and given rise to The Internet of Things. This is how Rambus sees the future.
Rambus innovations enable our DDR3 PHY solution to support data rates of up to 1866 megatransfers per second (MT/s) in a low-cost wire bond package. Strategic Marketing Director Rob Dhat shows the test chip in action.
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.
