Arasan’s Total MIPI Display IP(TM) with MIPI DSI-2(SM) and VESA DSC is used widely as the primary display interface for mobile, automobile, and AR/VR gadgets. These displays are getting more advanced, offering ultra-high-definition resolutions (>4K), higher frame rates, and RGB capabilities. It’s becoming more difficult for designers to balance the need for data bandwidth with a reduction in power usage, all the while maintaining a high level of visual quality. Compression protocols that are visually lossless via display interfaces like Arasan’s VESA DSC IP are needed by design professionals. Arasan’s Total IP(TM) solution for MIPI DSI-2(SM) with VESA DSC IP provides an end-to-end solution enabling visually lossless compression for displays requiring high bandwidth and optimum power efficiency.

Arasan’s Total MIPI Display IP(TM) with VESA DSC IP is seamlessly integrated and highly interoperable with low gate count, low latency, and reduced memory size implementations and provides real-time compression of high-definition streams up to 8K in resolution. The core accepts inputs of 8, 10, 12, 14, or 16 bits per pixel in either RGB or YCbCr format (4:4:4 or 4:2:2). The DSC Encoder/Decoder core incorporates industry-standard interfaces for host setup and control, video input and output, and audio input and output.

Arasan’s VESA DSC Encoder IP and VESA DSC Decoder IP are available immediately as standalone IP or seamlessly integrated with Arasan’s DSI Tx IP or DSI Rx IP respectively.
