MIPI CSI-2 Tx v2.0 Controller IP

Description and Features

The MIPI Camera Serial Interface (CSI-2) is an interface between a camera and an image-processing engine. MIPI CSI Transmitter is used in mobile and high–speed serial applications where a camera can send the video data using it over MIPI lines to the MIPI CSI Receiver for decoding the data and use it for subsequent processing. MIPI CSI Transmitter adheres to MIPI CSI Specification. The MIPI CSI Transmitter along with MIPI DPHY provides a complete solution for encoding MIPI data.

The MIPI CSI-2 Receiver, along with MIPI CSI-2 transmitter and MIPI DPHY/CPHY, provides a complete solution for MIPI CSI-2 communication.
