The DS90UB964-Q1 is a versatile camera hub capable of connecting serialized camera data received from 4 independent video datastreams via an FPD-Link III interface. When coupled with DS90UB913AQ/913Q/933Q serializers, the DS90UB964-Q1 receives data from 1-Megapixel image sensors supporting 720p/800p/960p resolution at 30-Hz or 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.
The DS90UB964-Q1 includes 4 FPD-Link III deserializers, each enabling a connection via cost-effective 50-Ω single-ended coaxial or 100-Ω differential STP cables. The receive equalizer automatically adapts to compensate for cable loss characteristics, including degradation over time.
Each of the FPD-Link III interfaces also includes a separate low latency bi-directional control channel that conveys control information from an I2C port and is independent of video blanking period. General purpose I/O signals such as those required for camera synchronization and functional safety features also make use of this bi-directional control channel.
