    MIPI I3C v1.1 – A Conversation with Ken Foust

    Q: What makes the newly released MIPI I3C® v1.1 different from v1.0, and why is it important to developers?

    I see Version 1.0 as setting a new baseline. We came together to make an interface that would dramatically simplify the integration of sensors and address many of the key pain points that all of us in the industry were dealing with when working with I2C and SPI interfaces. We think we accomplished that with v1.0—anywhere sensors are used, MIPI I3C belongs. Now v1.1 is the first update to build on that foundation.

    MIPI Debug and Trace Featured in Embedded Computing Design and Electronics Media

    Earlier this year, the full lineup of MIPI debug and trace specifications was made available to the broader community, giving developers not only a standard, layered set of interfaces and protocols, but also an alternative to using expensive proprietary testing tools.

    In recent articles in Electronics Media and Embedded Computing Design, Enrico Carrieri, chair of the MIPI Debug Working Group, shares how MIPI Alliance’s broad portfolio of debug and trace specifications can be used to streamline development for mobile, Internet of Things (IoT), 5G, automotive and many other applications.
