A project which summarizes and continues on from the excellent Mike's Electric Stuff blog, where he details the reverse engineering and development of a MIPI DSI video generator for the iPod Nano v6 LCD.

Mike Harrison did all the heavy lifting. I just developed this small breakout board based on his notes and will develop an FPGA-agnostic VHDL core to encode image data into a MIPI data stream suitable for this device. The hardware is released under a CC BY-NC-SA license and the source is released under GPLv2.

There are no plans to support the digitizer interface at this time.

I try to repeat Mike's projects and just wanted to know. Is your development board fully functional?

  Are you sure? yes | no
