MIPI Generator



    The MIPI Generator SVO-03-MIPI is a camera emulation board that converts video signals from USB3.0 or HDMI to MIPI CSI-2.
   Instead of using an actual CMOS image sensor, recorded videos or computer-graphics images on a PC can be output to image processing devices such as ECUs. You can freely adjust the video output timing, enabling various MIPI camera emulations.
   HDMI can also be used as an input interface. In this case you can adjust EDID settings as well as MIPI output timing.
   This board facilitates the smooth development of image processing equipment even during the camera development, by using simulator videos.

   • Supports MIPI CSI-2 up to 1Gbps/lane
• Input from USB3.0 or HDMI
• Supports 4Gbps automotive serializer
