Mixel and GDA Technologies Partner to Deliver a Complete UFS MIPI Solution

Joint collaboration to provide low-risk, low-power, low gate-count total integrated solution to the customer

Warsaw, Poland – (BUSINESS WIRE, June 17, 2013) – GDA Technologies Inc. (a Larsen & Toubro company) and Mixel, Inc.®, today announced the availability of a complete solution for the Mobile Industry Processor Interface (MIPI®) supporting M-PHY Universal Flash Storage (UFS) use-case. This joint solution consists of the Mixel MIPI M-PHY (Physical Layer) and the GDA MIPI UniproSM and UFS Cores delivered as silicon Intellectual Property (IP).

“We are delighted that GDA Technologies is joining Mixel’s MIPI Central and that we are taking our five-year-old collaboration to the next level”

The complete MIPI solution will enable both Mixel and GDA Technologies to provide their customers with a comprehensive, low-risk, low-power, low gate-count and an extensively featured MIPI solution. It will be further expanded to support all other M-PHY use cases, such as DigRF, CSI-3, LLI, SSIC, and Mobile PCIe.

GDA concurrently joins Mixel’s MIPI Central partnership which brings together many best-in-class MIPI ecosystem stake-holders, all focused on providing the end-customer with all the products and services needed to minimize time-to-market, maximize product quality, while helping differentiate customers’ products supporting MIPI.
