Lattice Semiconductor Corporation (NASDAQ: LSCC) today announced the availability of the latest in a series of new reference designs featuring the Lattice CrossLink™ FPGA for video bridging applications. The MIPI DSI/CSI-2 to OpenLDI LVDS Interface Bridge reference design provides industrial device customers with a flexible and easy to implement solution to connect today’s more advanced application processors (APs) to the legacy displays still used in many of today’s industrial environments.
As a result of their long lifespans, industrial devices currently in use were originally designed to connect to displays via legacy interface standards like OpenLDI. However, the APs now favored by many OEMs today require support for the MIPI DSI interface, which isn’t backward-compatible with legacy display standards. Rather than redesign their products to support MIPI, one alternative for OEMs is to use a display interface bridging solution. The Lattice CrossLink reference designs lay down the framework required for adding a bridging solution to new and existing product designs.
“With our new CrossLink reference design, industrial OEMs no longer need to waste precious development time towards solving basic interface connectivity issues that don’t distinguish their products from the competition,” said Peiju Chiang, Product Marketing Manager, Lattice Semiconductor. “Our CrossLink reference designs will give customers a fast, easy and economical way to solve a range of interface design issues so they can focus more of their engineering resources on developing the value-added features that make their products stand out.”
