Arasan Chip Systems Inc., a provider of total IP solutions for SoC providers, has rolled out an IP compliant with MIPI SLIMbus standard v 2.0 released by the MIPI association on November 4 this year.

MIPI SLIMbus is used to interconnect audio components in mobile and mobile-influenced devices. The latest release, v2.0, adds features that address the market's needs for increasingly sophisticated audio performance while simplifying component integration for manufacturers. MIPI SLIMbus v2.0 is also backward compatible with previous versions of the specification.

The v2.0 release introduces three key features. First, it offers an approach for multiline configuration that increases bandwidth scalability. Second, it boasts multichannel capability that can transmit multiple, phase-aligned audio streams between multiple devices and peripherals. The multichannel feature can also support phase-coherency, improved direct memory access (DMA) efficiency, and higher bandwidth via a reduced number of ports to simplify integration and improve use of limited board space in a device. Third, it flaunts a segment distribution technique that uses new secondary data transport lines to maximise the use of available bandwidth for asynchronous data transmissions. This feature can improve performance for pushed or pulled data, software downloads, audio uploads or bulk data transport, stated the company.

As the industry's first supporter of SLIMBus, Arsan is pleased to announce support for the latest update.
