PI3WVR648 - High Speed Five Lane MIPI Switch
Diode Incorporated has announced the PI3WVR648, a five Lane MIPI 2:1 switch that is capable of switching physical layers that comply with either C-PHY or D-PHY series interface that are used in image sensors and cameras in smart phones and displays in mobile applications. The smart phone and portable device manufacturers are upgrading to high resolution and high speed camera modules, hence it became necessary to support high speed (HS) MIPI at the same time we can’t ignore the low-power (LP) MIPI in battery powered applications.
The PI3WVR648GEAEX is designed in a way to support both HS and LP HIMI. The 2:1 multiplexing allows the connected modules to switch rapidly between both the standard without incurring delays or signal distortion. The switch offers fast switching among its five lanes that are arranged as 10 channel single pole, double throw configuration. The typical use is to connect two MIPI complaints in a single module with C-PHY or D-PHY interface such as multi camera smart phones. With the support for four data lanes with one clock lane in D-PHY or three data lanes in C-PHY, the PI3WVR648GEAEX can sustain data rates of up to 4.5Gbps (D-PHY) and 3.5Gsps (C-PHY) with a total bandwidth of 6.0GHz, low crosstalk of -28dB at 2.25GHz, and off-isolation of -23dB at 2.25GHz.
