    MIPI I3C Events: May Webinar, June Interop Workshop in Munich

    Written by: Dervla O'Reilly, MIPI Senior Event Manager
    20 April 2022

    Registration is open for two upcoming events focused on MIPI I3C® and the publicly available MIPI I3C Basic℠. For those interested in learning more about how the utility and bus specification meets key IoT requirements, you'll want to secure your spot at the May webinar, Achieving Optimal Energy and Power Efficiency in IoT Devices with MIPI I3C; and the following month, both MIPI members and nonmember implementers are invited to participate in a MIPI I3C Interop Workshop in Munich.

    Major CSI-2 Update Supports Always-On, Low-Power, Machine-Vision Applications

    A major update to the world’s most widely implemented embedded camera and imaging interface delivers a scalable foundation upon which next-generation artificial intelligence and machine‑vision systems can enhance human-device interaction. Version 4.0 of the MIPI Camera Serial Interface 2 (MIPI CSI-2®) introduces key new features that continue to build on CSI-2's capabilities to bring sight to artificial intelligence (AI) and support advanced machine-vision applications across multiple application spaces, such as mobile, augmented and virtual reality, drones, the Internet of Things (IoT), medical devices, industrial systems, automobiles, and client devices including tablets, notebooks and all-in-ones.

    Originally introduced in 2005, MIPI CSI-2 is a lane-scalable, high-speed protocol for the transmission of still and video images from image sensors to application processors. The specification supports a broad range of use cases that require high performance, low power and low electromagnetic interference (EMI).
