(ACTIVE) Quad 2MP Camera Hub FPD-Link III Deserializer With Dual CSI-2 Output Ports


Functional Diagram


The DS90UB960-Q1 is a versatile sensor hub capable of connecting serialized sensor data received from four independent video data streams through an FPD-Link III interface. When paired with a DS90UB953-Q1 serializer, the DS90UB960-Q1 receives data from sensors such as imagers supporting full HD 1080p/2MP resolution at 60-Hz frame rates. Data is received and aggregated into a MIPI CSI-2 compliant output for interconnect to a downstream processor. A second MIPI CSI-2 output port is available to provide additional bandwidth, or offers a second replicated output for data-logging and parallel processing.

The DS90UB960-Q1 includes four FPD-Link III deserializers, each enabling a connection through cost-effective 50-Ω single-ended coaxial or 100-Ω differential STP cables. The receive equalizers automatically adapt to compensate for cable loss characteristics, including degradation over time.

Each of the FPD-Link III interfaces also includes a separate low latency bidirectional control channel that continuously conveys I2C, GPIOs, and other control information. General-purpose I/O signals such as those required for camera synchronization and diagnostics features also make use of this bidirectional control channel.

The DS90UB960-Q1 is AEC-Q100 qualified for automotive applications and is offered in a cost-effective and space-saving 64-pin VQFN package.
