MIPI M-PHY Compliance Kit

Characterize and validate the performance of a MIPI M-PHY channel design.

This kit is designed for an interface between system devices with up to 25 inches of PCB etch and one connector. The kit includes IBIS-AMI TX and RX models for reference and compliance testing.

This kit enables you to insert a channel design and characterize and validate its performance using the specification masks to determine if the channel has a “high confidence” of success. If the channel does not meet the compliance masks or BER estimates, further investigation or redesign, along with simulation, will need to be performed to determine possible changes to meet compliance.


Open the MIPI M-PHY kit in the Serial Link Designer app using the openSignalIntegrityKit function.



Kit Overview

  • Project Name: MIPI_M_PHY

  • MIPI_M_Phy_G1 interface: Target operating frequencies of 1.25 Gb/s (800 ps) and 1.46 Gb/s (680 ps)

  • MIPI_M_Phy_G2 interface: Target operating frequencies of 255 Gb/s (400 ps) and 2.92 Gb/s (343 ps)

  • MIPI_M_Phy_G3 interface: Target operating frequencies of 4.99 Gb/s (200 ps) and 5.83 Gb/s (172 ps)

  • MIPI_M_Phy_G4 interface: Target operating frequencies of 9.98 Gb/s (100 ps) and 11.66 Gb/s (86 ps)

The MIPI M-PHY kit defines one schematic set for each interface.

  • MIPI — Used for all compliance testing
