    Standardizing Debug and Trace Interfaces for a Rapidly Evolving Mobile World

    Today, signals and interfaces that used to be visible at test points on a PCB are now embedded in SoCs, so for those of us involved in debug and trace, it’s made our work much more difficult. Of course, new techniques have emerged, but dealing with these separate approaches often adds work and slows time to market.

    To streamline development, the industry needs to converge on common interfaces and protocols used by these new technologies. Within the MIPI Debug Working Group (Debug WG), we’ve been taking on that task.

    Over the last several years, we’ve created a broad portfolio of standards and recommendations available to product developers and tool vendors. If you want to learn more or get involved, check out the Debug WG webpage.

    Join Us at CES 2019

    Written by: Rob Anhofer, MIPI Director of Operations
    31 December 2018

    It’s always exciting to kick off a fresh new year amid the hustle and bustle of CES in Las Vegas, and I’m looking forward to representing MIPI once again alongside MIPI Managing Director Peter Lefkin.

    I’m sure CES 2019 will be just as informative as past events -- highlights from last year included the keynotes ”Advances in Artificial Intelligence, 5G Connectivity, Autonomous Driving, and Virtual Reality,” from Intel and ”Exploration on Future Connectivity and Strategy in Artificial Intelligence, IoT and New Smart Devices,” from Huawei; along with a keynote panel on “How 5G will Enable the Future.”

    MIPI Alliance Delivers New I3C Basic Specification

    When it was released in January 2017, the MIPI I3C specification came as a big relief to developers struggling to keep up with the proliferation of sensors in smartphones, semi-autonomous vehicles, drones and other mobile-connected products. From the start, we saw interest from companies large and small, and inside and outside of mobile, as well as other standards organizations, students, researchers and even hobbyists who welcomed it as a replacement to the aging, but ubiquitous I2C. To help spur innovation and grow the MIPI ecosystem, we just released MIPI I3C Basic v1.0, a subset of MIPI I3C that bundles the most commonly needed features, including:
