    The Wires Behind Wireless

    Updates Released for MIPI STP and Other Debug and Trace Specifications

    Reliance on legacy methods of probing buses and signals with dedicated, proprietary debug and test equipment across layers can be impractical. It's often too disjointed, too complex and too costly—particularly with so many different components working together across today’s systems for mobile, IoT, automotive, industrial, 5G and other ecosystems.

    To solve this, the MIPI Debug Working Group develops low-cost and interoperable hardware and software interface and protocol specifications that work together across the full stack, leveraging functional interfaces as often as possible to improve the applicability of designers’ existing toolsets and hold down costs. Updates to four of these specifications have been recently released.

    Major UniPro Update Targets Evolving Needs of Flash Memory Storage Applications

    Since its introduction in 2007, MIPI UniPro® has been incorporated into multiple versions of the JEDEC Solid State Technology Association's Universal Flash Storage (UFS) standard as its transport and link layers, along with MIPI M-PHY® serving as its physical layer. A major update to the versatile, application-agnostic MIPI UniPro transport layer for chip-to-chip/interprocessor communication (IPC) applications was recently released to MIPI Alliance members and includes new features developed in collaboration with JEDEC for its upcoming UFS 4.0.

    In-Person MIPI Meetings Resume With Full Week of Events in Munich

    The excitement of returning to in-person collaboration was evident earlier this month as MIPI Board and Contributor members gathered in Munich, 13-17 June, for MIPI Alliance Member Meeting #60.

    The first face-to-face (F2F) meeting since 2019, the weeklong event brought together participants from more than a dozen working groups to advance MIPI specifications and key initiatives, provide input on education and marketing activities, and network with colleagues from around the globe. In addition, attendees were updated on industry trends and MIPI activities during the Opening Plenary, honored their fellow members at the ninth annual Awards Ceremony, and shared technical knowledge during the I3C Interop Workshop and MIPI Demo Day.

    New Ethernet Adaptation Layer Adds Control Option to MIPI A-PHY Automotive Networks

    To satisfy the demand for both advanced safety features and better driver and passenger experiences, automakers are adding more displays, larger in size and with greater resolutions, to the digital cockpit. This trend has created a need for more in-vehicle wiring, which in turn adds cost, weight and complexity to new car designs.

    This is one of the many challenges being addressed by the introduction of MIPI Automotive SerDes Solutions, or MASS for short, which offers a standardized framework for integrating cameras and displays with their associated electronic control units (ECUs) using the MIPI A-PHYSM asymmetric SerDes physical layer as its foundation.
