Arasan Announces it’s 2’nd Generation MIPI C-PHY / D-PHY IP Combo Core for C-PHY v1.2 Specifications

Arasan Chip Systems a leading provider of semiconductor IP for mobile and automobile SoCs today announced the immediate availability of its MIPI C-PHY IP Core for nodes from 28nm to 12nm

Sep 13, 2018, San Jose, CA: Arasan today announced the immediate availability of its MIPI C-PHY / D-PHY Combo IP Core compliant to the C-PHY specification Version 1.2 while also being compliant to the D-PHY 1.2 Specification. The design can be enhanced to support the latest D-PHY 2.1 Specification upon customer request.  The 2’nd generation Combo PHY has been further improved from our first generation 28nm designs for low power and area while reducing the area penalty compared to a standalone D-PHY. Hence the new C-PHY / D-PHY Combo is a universal PHY that future proofs our customers who may wish to have a D-PHY only design, but may need to support or insure themselves for C-PHY support  in future with negligible area impact. 

“Arasan has leveraged its decades of expertise in D-PHY and the newer C-PHY standard to come up with a unique architecture that allows our customers to implement C-PHY with negligible area impact and no difference in power consumption when operating in D-PHY only mode..” said Prakash Kamath CTO at Arasan. 

The C-PHY is targeted towards camera sensor applications in the mobile and automobile SoC’s. Arasan C-PHY IP seamlessly integrated with our CSI Tx IP has been licensed by leading sensor manufacturers in Japan and U.S.A. Arasan’s first generation C-PHY v1.1 Tx is widely used by industry leading sensor manufacturers giving other SoC customers seamless interoperability with various sensors. Arasan C-PHY Testchip based HDK is also used by early adopters for compliance and interoperability testing.


The C-PHY IP GDSII is immediately available for 65nm to 12nm process nodes. Test Chips and C-PHY / D-PHY Combo HDK are also available to prospective licensees and Production / Compliance tester vendors.
