Multi-sensor aggregation and bridging for ADAS

September 13, 2016 // By Julien Happich
Lattice Semiconductor has expanded its automotive product portfolio with ECP5 and CrossLink programmable devices tailored specifically for interface bridging applications.

The two products deliver optimized connectivity solutions for Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and infotainment applications, while also bridging the gap between emerging image sensor and video display interfaces with legacy automotive interfaces. The ECP5 has a cost optimized architecture with high-speed SERDES channels to provide video interfaces to Open LDI, LVDS FPD-Link, eDP, PCIe and GigE. The CrossLink is what the company claims to be the world’s fastest MIPI D-PHY bridging device, delivering up to 4K UHD resolution at 12 Gbps bandwidth. It supports popular mobile, camera, display and legacy interfaces such as MIPI D-PHY, MIPI CSI-2, MIPI DSI, MIPI DPI, CMOS, and SubLVDS, LVDS and more, all in a 6mm 2 package. The device as a built-in sleep mode and is claimed to be the lowest power programmable bridging solution in active mode. Samples of the ECP5 and CrossLink automotive devices are available upon request.
