Cadence Announces Verification IP for MIPI SoundWire™ and C-PHY

Comments(0)Filed under: Denali, VIP, CSI, SLIMbus, MIPI, MIPI Alliance, M-PHY, Cadence, M-PCIe, Verification IP, PureSpec, audio, Soundwire, C-PHY

Anyone who has been involved in designing mobile devices in recent years is familiar with the MIPI alliance -- a non-profit organization, which took the mission to standardize all interfaces of mobile device systems: from the camera sensor through the RF, all the way to the battery and ultra fast PHYs -- 30 different specifications!

But that’s just the beginning. The MIPI engineers don’t stand still and are working these days on two brand new specifications: SoundWire™ and C-PHY

SoundWire is a new digital audio interface specification that enables bi-directional digital communication with focus on low complexity and low gate count, making it attractive to many mobile designs. C-PHY is a new PHY standard, providing improved performance while maintaining backward compatibility for MIPI CSI-2 (Camera Serial Interface), one of the most popular MIPI interfaces.

Cadence, a long time MIPI Contributor member, today (March 12) announced the availability of Verification IP for SoundWire and C-PHY to support its realization by the MIPI early adopter members. A first demo of the new Verification IP was presented at the MIPI alliance F2F meeting in Chicago this week (more on what happened there will be posted in another blog).
