I'm looking for USB3.0 UVC solution for image sensor and I'm seeking comments on CX3 and FX3.

There are lot of examples about FX3 application  on image sensor but almost no details on CX3. 

Does that mean FX3 is more recommended for "all" application?

Is it possible (and easy) to impliment FX3 to cover MIPI task or even to have a FX3 MIPI template ?

Is there any extra hidden cost  outside FX3 DVK that should be considered to evaluate FX3 for MIPI Camera?(for examplem, JTAG device, software licence fee..etc.)

Hi Hw,


CX3 example projects are available with FX3 SDK 1.3.  You can download the SDK from the following link:


Once the SDK is installed in your PC, the example projects can be found in the following directory:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Cypress\EZ-USB FX3 SDK\1.3\firmware\cx3_examples


 The data transfer interface of MIPI is a unidirectional differential serial interface with data and clock signals. FX3 does not support differential serial interface. So MIPI cannot be  interfaced with FX3.
