Use Case of i.MX RT1170 MCU LCD Display System Based on MIPI DSI

March 17, 2021 by NXP Semiconductors

Application Note Overview

This application note describes how to use the MIPI DSI Host Controller and LCDIFv2 Controller to drive a DSI-compliant LCD panel on i.MX RT1170 MCU.

The Mobile Industry Processor Interface (MIPI) Display Serial Interface (DSI) controller is a flexible, high-performance digital core that provides a serial interface that allows communication with MIPI DSI-compliant peripherals, and the Liquid Crystal Display Interface version 2 (LCDIFv2) is a display controller on i.MX RT1170. 

You'll learn the ins and outs of using the MIPI DSI Host Controller and discover what makes it a versatile, high-speed interface for LCD displays in all sorts of applications. You'll also learn all about the LCDIFv2 controller and how it's used to fetch graphics stored in memory and display them on an LCD panel.
