MIPI I3C Master Controller IP

Product Description

The MIPI I3C interface is an evolutionary standard that improves upon the features of I2C, while maintaining backward compatibility. This standard offers a flexible multi-drop interface between the host processor and peripheral sensors to support the growing usage of sensors in embedded systems.

Key Features and Benefits

  • Compliant with MIPI I3C Specification V1.0
  • Compliant with MIPI I3C HCI Specification V1.0
  • Supports up to 12.5 MHz operation using Push-Pull
  • Open-Drain and Push-pull type transactions (as required)
  • Supports legacy I2C devices
  • Dynamic Addressing while supporting Static Addressing for Legacy I2C devices
  • Legacy I2C Messaging
  • I2C-like Single Data Rate Messaging (SDR)
  • Optional High Data Rate Messaging Modes (HDR)
  • Support for Multi-master (transferring the ownership of the bus to a Secondary Master if Present)
  • Reception of In-band Interrupt Support from the I3C Slave devices
  • Reception of Hot-Join from newly added I3C Slave devices
  • Synchronous Timing Support and Asynchronous Time Stamping.
  • APB/AHB Target Interface for Configuring/Controlling the IP with Interrupt output
  • Small 16-byte (Configurable) FIFO for transferring data between Master and the Slave devices
  • Independent Clocks for AHB and the I3C Interface
