    Upcoming MIPI A-PHY Webinar: A First Look at a New Automotive Solution

    The word is out about MIPI A-PHY℠ completing development and moving into the adoption process, and MIPI invites you to learn more about the much-anticipated v1.0 at its upcoming webinar, MIPI A-PHY: The Cornerstone of a MIPI Automotive System Solution.

    Now in member review and expected to be released in September, this new serializer-deserializer (SerDes) physical layer interface is designed to support advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), autonomous driving systems (ADS), in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) and other surround-sensor applications.

    News from MIPI Alliance: New RFFE Version Delivers on 5G Requirements in Timing Precision and Low Latency

    5G uplink and downlink communications demand significantly more radio frequency (RF) bands, and, in turn, the subcarrier spacing (SCS) windows among RF packets are significantly tighter. That translates to unprecedented requirements for tight timing precision and low latency. Development of the MIPI RF Front End Control Interface (MIPI RFFESM) v3.0 has been keenly focused on meeting this challenge and aligning to precisely where evolution of the 3GPP 5G standard has progressed today.

    MIPI A-PHY Featured in Autonomous Vehicle Technology

    Improvements to driver assistance and self-driving systems hinge on collecting and using more data about a car’s surroundings. However, most vehicle networks were not built to support advanced features such as lane-keeping systems and multiple dash displays. As the industry moves toward self-driving and highly automated vehicles, automakers need new interfaces that can support new vehicle connectivity needs.

    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.
