MIPI C/D-PHY Combo Rx IP in 40LP

Description and Features

Many production nodes use the C-PHY/D-PHY Combo because it uses the fewest resources and energy. Users can configure the Combo PHY in D-PHY or C-PHY mode to support a range of applications. Additionally, it complies with the PPI interface, making it easy to connect to either the CIS-2 or DSI controller. The most competitive foundry methods in terms of PPA (Performance, Power, and Area) and standard compliances are D-PHY and C/D-PHY Combo. A wide range of functions are available with the ISO 26262 ASIL-B approved MIPI D-PHY for automotive multimedia applications.
