Business Wire: Mixel and Graphin announce what they call the world’s first end-to-end video transmission over a MIPI M-PHY link. In 2010, the two companies established a strategic partnership to address the emerging M-PHY and to produce a “Golden M-PHY” IC to be used in Graphin’s evaluation system. As a result of that collaboration, Mixel achieved first-silicon success with its M-PHY test chip supporting all use cases, and was the first and only IP provider to demonstrate that capability in the MIPI face-to-face meeting in Copenhagen in June 2011. The companies will now be demonstrating end-to-end video transmission using the Mixel chip in the MIPI Alliance face-to-face meeting in Seoul, Korea on March 13th.
Mixel’s M-PHY IP supports both TYPE I and TYPE II operation, A and B data rates, and all current and future MIPI M-PHY use-cases, such as DigRF v4, UniProSM 1.4, CSI-3, LLI, and JEDEC’s UFS. The MXL-MIPI-M-PHY-HSG2 supports High-Speed (HS) Gear1 (G1), Gear2 (G2), as well as Low-Speed Gear 0 (LS-G0) through LS-G7. The IP supports 1.0 version of the M-PHY specifications, and has been silicon proven for over a year now.
