Release date- 11022014 - System designers are faced with many obstacles during the design of a smartphone or tablet, one of the toughest being integration of key components such as display bridges.
CUB Mother BoardDuring the design process, often physical CPU reference design boards are used for testing and bring-up of prototype hardware. These reference designs are subject to the specifications of the processor, meaning often they only support a single display standard (MIPI-DSI, LVDS, or RGB, for example). As has been shown numerous times through millions of shipping products, often the display chosen requires a different standard, and a bridge device must be used. In this situation, the system designer is often forced to create a custom board(s) that uses the chosen display bridge, a time-consuming, costly, and laborious task. The CUB display bridge reference design system eliminates that need by providing an out-of-the-box solution.
The CUB system is a series of boards that support either a 'blue wire' or direct connection between the CPU and the display. Supporting the entire span of
In addition to addressing and solving the necessary display bridging need, the CUB system also features the ability to allow designers to test and evaluate
A typical use of the CUB system might occur as follows: a system designer may have a processor board with a RGB display output. However, the chosen display might be a VESA-standard LVDS display.
Breakout Expansion CardThe designers VESA-standard LVDS display plugs directly into the existing LVDS Expansion Card.
LVDS Expansion CardThe entire system is powered up, and after software commands to enable communication between the devices on both the CUB and processor boards, the system designer will be able to pass content directly to the display and can begin work on display tuning and VEE/DPO calibration.
For customers interested strictly in display bridging, the CUB system can be used with the ArcticLink III BX product line, pin-identical to the ArcticLink III VX, but without VEE and DPO.
The CUB system supports all variants of the ArcticLink III VX, including:
