SLVS-EC v3.0 Rx IP


SLVS-EC v3.0 Rx IP is an interface IP core that runs on Altera® FPGAs. Using this IP, you can quickly and easily implement products that support the latest SLVS-EC standard v3.0. You will also receive an "Evaluation kit" for early adoption.

  • Altera® FPGAs can receive signals directly from the SLVS-EC Interface.
  • Compatible with the latest SLVS-EC Specification Version 3.0.
  • Supports powerful De-Skew function. Enables board design without considering Skew that occurs between lanes.
  • "Evaluation kit”(see below) is available for speedy evaluation at the actual device level.

Overview of SLVS-EC Standard

  • SLVS-EC (Scalable Low Voltage Signaling with Embedded Clock) is an interface standard for high-speed & high-resolution image sensors developed by Sony Semiconductor Solutions Corporation.
  • The SLVS-EC standard is standardized by JIIA (Japan Industrial Imaging Association).

SLVS-EC Connection with Sensor
SLVS-EC Connection with Sensor


  • SLVS-EC Specification Version 1.2/2.0 and the latest 3.0 are supported.
  • Provides various functions defined in the SLVS-EC Link Layer.
    • Selectable 32 or 64 pixel for output interface
    • Supports 8, 10, 12, 14, 16 bit/pixel
  • Realizes transfer with less overhead compared to conventional ANSI 8b10b by taking advantage of GCC (Gigabit Channel Coding) features added in the latest SLVS-EC Version 3.0.
  • Supports error correction using Error Correction Code (ECC)
  • Supports Byte to Pixel conversion in 1, 2, 4, 6, and 8 lane configurations.
  • Header analysis and payload error detection.
  • Compile options allow removal of unnecessary functions.
