Everything you need to verify mobile designs

The MIPI® Alliance is a global, collaborative organization comprised of companies that span the mobile ecosystem and are committed to defining and promoting interface specifications for mobile devices. The group has produced multiple specifications covering every type of interface for mobile SoC designs. These specifications are rapidly changing which makes it a challenge for verification engineers to keep up with them.

That's where Cadence VIP for MIPI Protocols comes in.  Our VIP makes it easy to verify designs incorporating the latest MIPI specifications.  With the largest portfolio of MIPI VIP, and support for other new mobile protocols, you can speed-up your pre-silicon SoC verification work – and be first to market with your new mobile product!

 

A theoretical mobile design example

The image above depicts a theoretical mobile design example. Cadence provides VIP for all the interfaces shown in red. VIP is also available for these lower-layer MIPI interfaces: C-PHY, D-PHY, M-PHY, and UniPro.
