Lattice Semiconductor introduced its CrossLinkPlus FPGA family for MIPI D-PHY based embedded vision systems. CrossLinkPlus devices are innovative, low-power FPGAs featuring integrated flash memory, a hardened MIPI D-PHY and high-speed I/Os for instant-on panel display performance and flexible on-device programming capabilities. Additionally, Lattice provides ready-to-use IPs and reference designs to accelerate implementation of enhanced sensor and display bridging, aggregation and splitting functionality, a common requirement for industrial, automotive, computing, and consumer applications.
Developers want to enhance the user experience by adding multiple image sensors and/or displays to embedded vision systems, while also meeting system cost and power budgets. Lattice addresses this need with CrossLinkPlus FPGAs: small (3.5 x 3.5mm), low power (< 300µW) devices specifically optimised for embedded vision applications with features like a hardened MIPI D-PHY, broad high-speed I/O support for interfaces like OpenLDI and RGB, and on-chip non-volatile flash memory.
