    MIPI CSE Adds Functional Safety to Automotive Image Sensor Data Streams

    A revolution in automotive electronics is accelerating the demand for more onboard sensors (camera/radar/lidar) and displays with higher performance. Advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous driving systems (ADS) are generating ever richer streams of image sensor data — and these data streams require interfaces with high bandwidth, low latency and importantly, functional safety.

    To help solve this need, MIPI Alliance recently released the Camera Service Extensions (MIPI CSESM) v1.0 specification, which enhances the MIPI Camera Serial Interface 2 (MIPI CSI-2®) image sensor interface with end-to-end functional safety and other features for automotive applications.

    MIPI I3C and I3C Basic v1.1.1 – A Conversation with Tim McKee

    The MIPI I3C® and I3C BasicSM specifications define scalable, medium-speed, utility and control bus interfaces for streamlined, cost-efficient connection of peripheral devices and sensors with application processors. As the broadly welcomed successor to the I2C interface, MIPI I3C and its features can be used to create innovative designs for products including smartphones, wearables and systems in automobiles and server environments. 

    MIPI Alliance recently released version 1.1.1 of both the MIPI I3C and I3C Basic specifications, so we asked Tim McKee, chair of the MIPI I3C Working Group, to provide an update on what’s new with the interfaces, how they’ve evolved and where the specifications may be headed next.
