MIPI D-PHY Serial Link Compliance Kit

Test the compliance of a channel to the MIPI D-PHY specification using Serial Link Designer.

This kit is designed to test MIPI D-PHY channel compliance only. The MIPI D-PHY specification requires channels to meet various mixed mode insertion and return loss characteristics. This kit allows the user to design their channel for compliance with the D-PHY specification. To evaluate the source synchronous timing of the interface using the compliant channel design, use the MIPI D-PHY Parallel Link Compliance Kit. In addition, this kit can be used to test the required transmitter and receiver return loss masks.


Open the MIPI D-PHY kit in the Serial Link Designer app using the openSignalIntegrityKit function.



Kit Overview

  • Project Name: MIPI_D_PHY_SLD_Kit

  • Interface Name: MIPI_D_PHY_SLD

  • Target operating frequencies: 0.9 Gb/s (1.11 ns), 1.5 Gb/s (667 ps), and 1.75 Gb/s (571 ps).

The MIPI D-PHY kit defines three schematic set for each interface. Reference IBIS TX and RX models are included as place holders for compliance testing.

  • ALL — All sheets in the project

  • Channel_Compliance — Testing MIPI D-PHY channel compliance

  • TX_RX_Compliance — Testing TX and RX compliance

For more information about the MIPI D-PHY channel compliance schematics, transfer net properties, and compliance rules, refer to the document MIPI_D_Phy_SLD.pdf that is attached to this example as a supporting file.
