Sofics and Hardent join Mixel's MIPI Ecosystem to Provide Designers a Complete MIPI Solution
January 05, 2021
Mixel MIPI Central adds two more members to round out product offering for MIPI IP customers.
Mixel announced new partnerships with Sofics and Hardent, the newest members of the Mixel MIPI ecosystem known as Mixel MIPI Central and each company's IP will bring new product offerings to Mixel MIPI IP customers.
Mixel's MIPI PHY supports multiple standards, including MIPI D-PHYSM, MIPI C-PHYSM, and M-PHY, as well as dual-mode PHYs such as MIPI C-PHY/MIPI D-PHY combo and LVDS/MIPI D-PHY combo. Sofics' Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) portfolio is silicon proven on 10 foundries including the FinFET processes. Together with Mixel's MIPI PHY IP, Sofics provides a complete MIPI solution protected with low-leakage ESD solutions in a small footprint.
Hardent's VESA Display Stream Compression (DSC) and VESA Display Compression (VDC-M) encoder and decoder IP cores enable designers to use visually lossless, low-latency video compression to reduce the display bandwidth. Hardent's video compression IP cores can be used with the Mixel PHY IP and the Rambus MIPI DSI-2SM controller IP in applications such as mobile, AR/VR, and automotive.
Mixel has developed a deep relationship with its MIPI ecosystem partners spanning the complete spectrum of product development, to provide its potential MIPI customers with one stop shopping for MIPI product development. Sofics joins Mixel MIPI Central as the first IP provider of Analog I/Os, specialty digital I/Os, and ESD protection. Hardent joins as the only video compression IP provider. Combined with the existing MIPI Central members' product portfolio, Sofics and Hardent round out the Mixel MIPI ecosystem with a more complete offering to customers interested in acquiring MIPI IP from Mixel.
