MIPI MDDI Unified Phy – Description


The MIPI MDDI Unified Solution is compliant with the MIPI Alliance Standard for D-PHY version 1.0 and the VESA Mobile Display Digital Interface Version 1.2 specification.

It consists of 4 lanes, 1 Clock/Strobe lane, 1 bidirectional data lane and 2 unidirectional data lanes, which makes it suitable for display interface applications.

The MDDI and MIPI blocks share the same signal and supply pins. The on-chip receive termination can be used for both MDDI and MIPI. The termination resistors can be calibrated to minimize variations. Once the Display module is qualified it can be used for both MIPI and MDDI resulting in faster time to market and in area and cost savings.
