Lattice Announces First Programmable ASSP (pASSP) Interface Bridge for Mobile Image Sensors and Displays

Del

Lattice Semiconductor Corporation (NASDAQ:LSCC), the leading provider of customizable smart connectivity solutions, today announced the industry’s first Lattice CrossLink™ programmable bridging device that supports leading protocols for mobile image sensors and displays. Systems with embedded cameras and displays often do not have the right type or number of interfaces, which can be resolved using a bridge. The new CrossLink device combines the flexibility and fast time to market of an FPGA with the power and functional optimization of an ASSP to create a new product class called programmable ASSP (pASSP™). As the first product in this category, the CrossLink device is a low cost video interface bridge with the highest bandwidth, lowest power and smallest footprint. This makes it the optimal solution for virtual reality headsets, drones, smartphones, tablets, cameras, wearable devices and human machine interfaces (HMIs).

  • Lowest power programmable bridging solution in active mode.
  • Built-in sleep mode.
  • Takes the strongest features from ASSPs and FPGAs to deliver the best solution of both worlds.

“The latest wave of image capture and display technology, including drones and VR, is creating real industry excitement. Combining these new technologies with a global base of 3.7 billion smartphones and tablets that’s set to rise more than 30 percent by 2020, all equates to a wide variety of interfaces that must be integrated to ensure compatibility,” said Carl Hibbert, associate director of entertainment content and delivery, Futuresource Consulting. “The ability to manage these interfaces through a low cost, low power and small footprint bridging solution is essential.”

Bridging the Video Connectivity Gap

Image Sensor Applications

Lattice’s CrossLink bridge can multiplex, merge and arbitrate between multiple image sensors to a single input. The device can also interface between high-end industrial and popular A/V image sensors with mobile application processors. This is ideal for 360, action, surveillance and DSLR cameras along with drones, augmented reality products and more.

Display Applications

With the CrossLink device, it is possible to receive video data from one MIPI DSI interface and send it out over two MIPI DSI interfaces at half the bandwidth. The same video stream can be split to two interfaces, ideal for virtual reality headsets and mobile set top boxes. Customers can also integrate consumer and industrial panels with RGB or LVDS interfaces with mobile applications processors. The CrossLink bridge can convert from MIPI DSI to multiple lanes of CMOS or LVDS interfaces such as MIPI DPI, OpenLDI and proprietary interface formats for HMIs, smart displays, smart homes and more.

“The CrossLink bridge has the flexibility of an FPGA and the performance of an ASSP for video technologies,” said C.H. Chee, senior director of consumer product marketing, Lattice Semiconductor. “Our product has a variety of applications for high-volume growth segments that demand fast, flexible innovation and solves the pressing challenge of having too many incompatible interfaces on one device.”

GSMA Finds That Consumers in Developing Countries Are Hard Hit by High Spectrum Prices17.7.2018 06:00Pressemelding

Better spectrum pricing policies are needed in developing countries to improve the economic and social welfare of the billions of people that remain unconnected to mobile broadband services, according to a new report, ‘Spectrum Pricing in Developing Countries’, released by the GSMA today at the Mobile 360 – Africa conference in Kigali. The study reveals that spectrum prices in developing countries are, on average, more than three times higher than in developed countries, when income is taken into account. This high spectrum pricing is a major roadblock to increasing mobile penetration. Authored by GSMA Intelligence, the study also found that governments are playing an active role in increasing spectrum prices to maximise state revenues from spectrum licensing. High spectrum prices are linked to countries with high levels of sovereign debt, and alarmingly average reserve prices in spectrum auctions are more than five times higher in developing countries than in developed, once income is
