The growing demand for high-performance displays in next-generation automotive and other applications is driving a rapid evolution in display requirements. To help system engineers address those requirements, the leaders of the MIPI Display Working Group will deliver two webinars this month, the first outlining the specifications in the MIPI automotive display stack, and the second exploring video compression in MIPI DSI-2℠.
MIPI Automotive SerDes Solutions (MASS), a standard framework providing end-to-end connectivity solutions for automotive sensors (camera/lidar/radar) and displays, has reached another important milestone with the release of three new standardized Protocol Adaptation Layers (PALs) for MIPI CSI-2®, MIPI DSI-2SM and Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) Embedded DisplayPort/DisplayPort (eDP/DP).
MIPI Alliance kicked off the year with the addition of 21 Adopter members from 1 January to 31 March. We look forward to working with these companies joining the 300+ MIPI members worldwide developing and implementing MIPI specifications.
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 taking a look at a different IoT market sector each month. In this second post in the series, we’ll examine the use of MIPI specifications in connected wearable devices.
Automotive display requirements are evolving rapidly as trends in connectivity, automation, sharing and electrification demand that automakers incorporate a growing number of larger and higher-resolution displays inside their vehicles. The use of visually lossless image compression will be essential to meet the bandwidth demands of these in-vehicle automotive displays and to ensure display connectivity solutions meet the stringent safety, reliability, power, weight and electromagnetic compatibility requirements demanded by the automotive industry.
Formed in 2019, the MIPI Security Investigation Group (Security IG) was established to provide recommendations for a scalable, uniform MIPI security framework and ongoing support model, as well as to offer guidance to MIPI working groups on overarching security requirements, guiding principles and policies, and external threats.
Recently the group achieved a significant milestone in evaluating approaches to secure systems-on-chips (SoCs) in automotive electronic control units (ECUs) to peripherals such as cameras, sensors and displays in support of MIPI’s automotive work. As part of this effort, the Security IG conducted a technical and strategic evaluation of DMTF’s Security Protocol and Data Model (SPDM) architecture, which provides message exchange, sequence diagrams, message formats and other relevant semantics for authentication, firmware measurement and certificate management. The evaluation confirmed that the SPDM architecture meets MIPI’s requirements for this use case. We sat down with Philip Hawkes and Rick Wietfeldt, co-chairs of the Security IG, to learn more.
