Mixel claims first silicon success with its MIPI M-PHY IP
The MXL-MIPI-M-PHY-HSG2 supports High-Speed (HS) Gear1 (G1) and Gear2 (G2), as well as Low-Speed Gear 0 (LS-G0) through LS-G7. The IP supports the 1.0 version of the M-PHY specifications.
Ashraf Takla, Mixel President and CEO, said: "The M-PHY is the most versatile PHY available today. In spite of its complexity, the Mixel team was able to verify the M-PHY’s complete functionality within two weeks of receiving the daughter card incorporating the Mixel M-PHY test chip."
Mixel has already licensed its M-PHY to customers for deployment in both TYPE I and TYPE II systems. Mixel’s first-silicon success announcement coincides with the MIPI Alliance’s M-PHY 1.0 launch. Mixel collaborates closely with all its MIPI ecosystem partners, which include, among many others, Agilent Technologies.
"We are working closely with Mixel to co-validate our M-PHY test portfolio with their first M-PHY silicon even prior to the formal M-PHY 1.0 spec. release," said Roland Scherzinger, Agilent Technologies’ MIPI Program Manager. "Mixel’s silicon is the first that has been made available to us from a MIPI IP vendor. We were excited to see that the IP is performing very well with our established measurements tools."
Mixel M-PHY platform has been made available to Mixel’s customers and partners to use for their own product development and validation effort. Mixel’s customers are now using the MMP to develop their RTL and to debug, evaluate and demo their MIPI products. This typically saves several man-years of platform development.
Mixel, together with some of its MIPI ecosystem partners will be jointly demonstrating their M-PHY solutions in the MIPI face-to-face meeting on the 16 June, 2011 in Copenhagen, Denmark.
