Lattice Semiconductor Bridges Interface Gap between Processors and Industrial Displays with New CrossLink Reference Design

Sponsored by Businesswire

Semiconductor Corporation
(NASDAQ: LSCC), the low power programmable
leader, today announced the availability of the latest in a series of
new reference designs featuring the Lattice CrossLink™ FPGA for video
bridging applications. The MIPI DSI/CSI-2 to OpenLDI LVDS Interface
Bridge reference design provides industrial device customers with a
flexible and easy to implement solution to connect today’s more advanced
application processors (APs) to the legacy displays still used in many
of today’s industrial environments.

As a result of their long lifespans, industrial devices currently in use
were originally designed to connect to displays via legacy interface
standards like OpenLDI. However, the APs now favored by many OEMs today
require support for the MIPI DSI interface, which isn’t
backward-compatible with legacy display standards. Rather than redesign
their products to support MIPI, one alternative for OEMs is to use a
display interface bridging solution. The Lattice CrossLink reference
designs lay down the framework required for adding a bridging solution
to new and existing product designs.

“With our new CrossLink reference design, industrial OEMs no longer need
to waste precious development time towards solving basic interface
connectivity issues that don’t distinguish their products from the
competition,” said Peiju Chiang, Product Marketing Manager, Lattice
Semiconductor. “Our CrossLink reference designs will give customers a
fast, easy and economical way to solve a range of interface design
issues so they can focus more of their engineering resources on
developing the value-added features that make their products stand out.”

Key features of the MIPI DSI/CSI-2 to OpenLDI LVDS Interface Bridge
reference design include:

  • Support single DSI input (RGB888 or RGB666) to single or dual channel
    LVDS output (RGB888 or RGB666)
  • Support single CSI-2 input (RGB888, RAW8, RAW10, or RAW12) to single-
    or dual-channel RGB888 LVDS outputs (RGB888)
  • Support for MIPI DSI input of up to 1.5 Gbps per lane
  • Support for OpenLDI at up to 1.2 Gbps per lane
  • Compliant with the MIPI D-PHY v1.1, CSI-2 v1.1, and DSI v1.1
