Originally developed for mobile applications, the MIPI® Camera Serial Interface (CSI-2℠) is rapidly evolving to meet the needs of emerging imaging and vision applications beyond mobile. Bringing support for high resolution image capture, rich color capability, and high frame rate video, MIPI CSI-2 is increasingly selected for use in smart phones, tablets, drones, automotive and mobility applications, wearables, and IoT.

As the MIPI CSI-2 standard continues to evolve and broaden its application reach, significant design and verification challenges have emerged. At Introspect Technology, we’ve created the most complete portfolio of tools for addressing these challenges. Our instruments have become indispensable to the design, verification, and high-volume manufacturing of devices and systems based on MIPI CSI-2. Features such as virtual channels, deep color pixel formats, scrambling, or spread spectrum clocking are all seamlessly supported by our test tools.

Industry Challenges

  • Lane distribution and merging
  • Ultra high resolution packet/frame testing and analysis
