SNLS589B September 2016 – July 2018 DS90UB960-Q1
When operating in CSI-2 Mode, the DS90UB960-Q1 receives CSI-2 formatted data on up to four FPD-Link III input ports and forwards the data to one or two CSI-2 transmit ports. The deserializer can operate in CSI-2 mode with synchronous back channel reference or non-synchronous mode. The forward channel line rate is independent of the CSI-2 rate in synchronous or non-synchronous with external clock mode. The mode supports the remapping of Virtual Channel IDs at the input of each receive port. This remapping allows the receivers to handle conflicting VC-IDs for input streams from multiple sensors and to send those streams to the same CSI-2 transmit port.
In CSI-2 mode each deserializer Rx Port can support an FPD-Link III line rate up to 4.16 Gbps, where the line (or forward channel) and back channel rates are based on the reference frequency used for the serializer:
