    MIPI A-PHY Moves Ahead in IEEE Adoption Process

    Written by: Peter Lefkin, MIPI Managing Director
    1 March 2021

    MIPI A-PHY℠ v1.0 has now crossed an important milestone on its path toward adoption as an IEEE standard.

    On 10 February, the MIPI A-PHY adoption PAR (Project Authorization Request), known as "IEEE P2977™ Adoption of MIPI Alliance Specification for A-PHY Interface (A-PHY) Version 1.0," was approved by the IEEE Standards Association (IEEE SA) Standards Board, following a recommendation by the organization's New Standards Committee. The IEEE SA Corporate Advisory Group served as the project's sponsor.

    MIPI in IoT: Enabling the Smart Factory

    The scope of the Internet of Things (IoT) is vast, covering numerous consumer and enterprise market sectors. For a closer look at how MIPI specifications support growth in IoT, we’re launching a new series of blog posts that will focus on a different market each month, kicking off with an examination of MIPI specifications in Smart Factories.

    According to analyst predictions, the Smart Factory market is estimated to grow from USD 214.7 billion in 2020 to USD 384.8 billion by 2025, covering virtually all industrial sectors, including process industries such as oil & gas, food & beverages, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, energy & power, metals & mining, pulp & paper, as well as discrete industries such as automotive, aerospace & defense, semiconductor & electronics, medical devices, machine manufacturing and others.

    MIPI Protocol Adaptation Layers (PALs) — A Conversation with Raj Kumar Nagpal

    MIPI Alliance is rolling out a portfolio of Protocol Adaptation Layers (PALs) to support a range of important automotive sensor and display applications—advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), autonomous driving systems (ADS) and in-vehicle infotainment (IVI), among others. The PALs enable upper-layer protocols such as MIPI Camera Serial Interface (CSI-2®) and Display Serial Interface (DSI-2SM) to be transported over MIPI A-PHYSM, the first industry-standard, long-reach serializer-deserializer (SerDes) physical layer interface.

    Raj Kumar Nagpal, interim chair of the MIPI PHY Working Group and lead of the MIPI A-PHY Subgroup, talks about how the PALs support A-PHY, as well as their contribution to the broader system of MIPI automotive connectivity solutions currently under development.
