MIPI cables: Suitable for all applications and 10 meters and longer

Various connector types exist for the MIPI CSI-2 interface. Vision Components accordingly offers a range of MIPI cables and customer-specific configuration options. Thanks to a SerDes adapter board developed by VC, coax cables up to 10 meters and longer can now be used with the MIPI interface. VC’s specially developed FPC cable (Flexible Printed Circuit) is available in three standard versions with 15, 22 or 24 pins, in lengths of 60 mm, 100 mm or 200 mm. Thus, it connects to all common single-board computers and CPU boards. Notably, it supports the full performance of the MIPI interface. Most processors feature a processing speed of 1.5 Gbps per lane and four lanes – transfer rates of 6 Gbps are possible, which corresponds to 750 MB/s at an 8-bit pixel resolution. Read more ›
