Automotive ADAS Reference Design for Four Camera Hub with MIPI CSI-2 Output


Design files


This camera hub reference design allows connection of up to four 1.3-megapixel cameras to a TDA3x system-on-chip (SoC) evaluation module (EVM). Each camera connects to the hub through a single coax cable. Using FPD-Link III connections, the cameras are connected to a four-port deserializer. The output of the deserializer is MIPI CSI-2. The design also allows connection of other types of sensors for sensor fusion use cases.

  • Accepts 4 camera inputs over FPD-Link III
  • Connects directly to the CSI-2 video ports on a TDA3x EVM
  • Provides wide range supply voltage for  Power Over Coax (4-14V)
  • Board power can come directly from car battery
  • Will work with any camera that uses a compatible FPD-Link III serializer
