As designers are challenged to integrate an increasing number of sensors in products, aggregating different data streams from dissimilar sensors (e.g., imaging cameras, lidar, radar) is the new normal for input/output-(I/O) constrained application processors. A central challenge across many use cases—such as drones, AR/VR, and automotive—is how to get multiple data streams into the I/O-constrained system-on-chip (SoC) processor.
JEDEC Solid State Technology Association (JEDEC) and MIPI Alliance have enjoyed a long liaison relationship of collaboration, as the two organizations serve some similar but also different applications and ecosystems. When we work together closely—as in development of JEDEC’s newly announced JESD79-5 DDR5 (Double Date Rate 5) standard—it results in better outcomes and broader market opportunities for all of our combined stakeholders.
MIPI Alliance would like to welcome 14 companies that joined the Alliance or upgraded their membership from 1 April to 30 June 2020. We look forward to working with these companies joining the 300+ MIPI Alliance members worldwide developing and implementing MIPI specifications.
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.
Automotive engineers continue to develop technologies for safer, more connected and fully autonomous vehicles. And to enable these technologies, OEMs and suppliers are working toward future models with more cameras and sensors, more informative displays and more powerful onboard computers.
MIPI Alliance’s second virtual member meeting of 2020 launched today with a special session to update participants on Alliance initiatives, technical milestones, marketing activities and strategic priorities, as well as to recognize MIPI members receiving 2019 Membership Awards.
