Synopsys, Inc. (Nasdaq: SNPS), a world leader in software and IP for semiconductor design, verification and manufacturing, announced the immediate availability of DesignWare® IP for the Mobile Industry Processor Interface (MIPI®) Display Serial Interface (DSI) Host Controller . With this latest addition, Synopsys broadens its DesignWare MIPI IP portfolio consisting of the DigRFSM v3 (2.5G/3.0G) and DigRFSM v4 (4G), CSI-2, M-PHY and D-PHY protocols. The DesignWare MIPI DSI Host Controller is fully compliant to the latest MIPI Alliance specifications for DSI, Display Pixel Interface (DPI-2), Display Bus Interface (DBI-2) and Display Command Set (DCS). Using a single-vendor solution for DSI display subsystems lowers integration risk and cost while speeding time-to-market of mobile systems-on-chip (SoCs).
Synopsys, Inc. (Nasdaq: SNPS), a world leader in software and IP for semiconductor design, verification and manufacturing, announced immediate availability of the DesignWare® MIPI M-PHY® IP for next-generation high-speed interfaces based on the newly ratified MIPI® Alliance M-PHY specification. With this latest addition to the DesignWare MIPI IP portfolio, Synopsys is the first provider to offer a comprehensive solution of a controller and PHY IP for both the MIPI DigRF(SM) v3 (2.5G/3.0G) and v4 (4G) standards. Incorporating both standards in a mobile device brings the benefit of the faster 4G standards while preserving broad coverage by using 2.5G/3.0G as a fallback mode. The configurable MIPI DigRF V4 Master Controller and M-PHY hard macro are compliant to the MIPI Alliance specifications. Utilizing a single-vendor solution enables designers to lower the risk and cost of integrating these MIPI interfaces into baseband and application processor integrated circuits (ICs), speeding time-to-market of advanced semiconductor solutions for LTE and Mobile WiMAX.
Synopsys, Inc. (Nasdaq: SNPS), a world leader in software and IP for semiconductor design, verification and manufacturing, announced the immediate availability of the DesignWare® MIPI® 4G DigRF(SM) Master Controller IP. By complementing its current silicon-proven DesignWare MIPI 3G DigRF Controller and PHY IP, Synopsys becomes the first vendor to offer a comprehensive IP portfolio for both the MIPI DigRF v3 and v4 standards. The configurable MIPI 4G DigRF Master Controller is compliant to the recently ratified MIPI DigRF v4 1.00 specification and enables designers to reliably implement the new standard.
