The Mobile Industry Processor Interface (MIPI) Camera Serial Interface (CSI-2) RX subsystem implements a CSI-2 receive interface according to the MIPI CSI-2 standard v2.0 with underlying MIPI D-PHY standard v1.2. The subsystem captures images from MIPI CSI-2 camera sensors and outputs AXI4-Stream video data ready for image processing. The subsystem allows fast selection of the top-level parameters and automates most of the lower level parameterization. The AXI4-Stream video interface allows a seamless interface to other AXI4-Stream-based subsystems.


  • Support for 1 to 4 D-PHY lanes
  • Line rates ranging from 80 to 2500 Mbps (Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC EV devices)
  • Multiple Data Type support (RAW, RGB, YUV)
  • Filtering based on Virtual Channel Identifier
  • Support for 1, 2, or 4 pixels per sample at the output
  • AXI4-Lite interface for register access to configure different subsystem options
  • Dynamic selection of active lanes within the configured lanes during subsystem generation
  • Interrupt generation to indicate subsystem status information
  • Internal D-PHY allows direct connection to image sources
