MIPI CSI-2 v2.0 Released

BusinessWire: MIPI Alliance announces a major release of its Camera Serial Interface (CSI-2) v2.0.

Key MIPI CSI-2 v2.0 enhancements:
  • RAW-16 and RAW-20 color depth that improves intra-scene HDR and SNR to bring “advanced vision” capabilities to autonomous vehicles and systems
  • Expanded virtual channels from 4 to 32 to accommodate the proliferation of image sensors with multiple data types and support multi-exposure and multi-range sensor fusion for ADAS applications such as enhanced collision avoidance
  • Latency Reduction and Transport Efficiency (LRTE) provides increased image sensor aggregation without adding to system cost; facilitates real-time perception, processing and decision-making; and optimizes transport to reduce the number of wires, toggle rate and power consumption
  • Differential Pulse Code Modulation (DPCM) 12-10-12 compression, which reduces bandwidth while delivering superior SNR images devoid of compression artifacts for mission-critical vision applications
  • Scrambling to reduce emissions Power Spectral Density (PSD), minimize radio interference and allow further reach for longer channels
CSI-2 v2.0 can be implemented on either of two physical layers from MIPI Alliance: MIPI C-PHY and MIPI D-PHY.
