MIPI STP Master Controller IP

Description and Features

MIPI STP MASTER interface provides full support for the PTI which is a generic high performance parallel interface, support for the two-wire MIPI STP MASTER synchronous serial interface, compatible with MIPI STP specification. Through its MIPI STP MASTER compatibility, it provides a simple interface to a wide range of low-cost devices. MIPI STP MASTER IIP is proven in FPGA environment. It can also support a variety of host bus interfaces for easy adoption into any design architecture - AHB, AHB-Lite, APB, AXI, AXILite, Tilelink, OCP, VCI, Avalon, PLB, Wishbone or custom buses.



  • Compliant with MIPI STP Specification version 2.0 and 2.2.
  • Supports STP interface.
  • Supports ATB interface.
  • Supports Custom interface.
  • Supports a trace stream comprised of 4-bit frames.
  • Supports up to 16 independent data Channels per Master.
  • Supports basic trace data messages that can convey 4, 8, 16, 32, or 64-bit wide data.
  • Supports Time-stamped data packets using one of several time stamp formats including: • Gray code • Natural binary • Natural binary delta • Export buffer depth (legacy STPv1 timestamp that requires DTC support).
  • Supports Data packet markers to indicate packet usage by higher-level protocols.
  • Supports Flag packets for marking points of interest (for higher-level protocols) in the stream.
  • Supports Packets for aligning time stamps from different clock domains.
  • Supports Packets for indicating to the DTC the position of a trigger event, which is typically used to control actions in the DTC.
  • Supports Packets for cross-synchronization events across multiple STP sources.
  • Supports for user-defined data packets.
  • Facilities for synchronizing the trace stream on bit and message boundaries.
  • Fully synthesizable.
  • Static synchronous design.
  • Positive edge clocking and no internal tri-states.
  • Scan test ready.
  • Simple interface allows easy connection to microprocessor/microcontroller devices.
