Adapter Board Allows 10-m Coax Cables to be Used with the MIPI Interface

Feb. 22, 2022

A SerDes adapter board developed by Vision Components (VC) allows coax cables up to 10 meters and longer to be used with the MIPI interface. VC’s FPC cable (Flexible Printed Circuit) is available in three standard versions with 15, 22, or 24 pins in lengths of 60, 100, or 200 mm. Thus, it connects to all common single-board computers and CPU boards. It supports the full performance of the MIPI interface. Most processors feature a processing speed of 1.5 Gbps per lane and four lanes—transfer rates of 6 Gbps are possible, which corresponds to 750 MB/s at an 8-bit pixel resolution. The FPC cables have a trigger input and a flash output. They enable video streams as well as single image acquisition and do not affect the host system. Settings such as shutter speed, gain, image size and position, and binning can be individually adjusted for each image.
