MIPI Alliance periodically receives questions about how its legal policies apply in different circumstances. This post addresses questions we’ve received about the requirement that MIPI protocols be used only with MIPI PHYs. The post explains existing policy. It does not change any current MIPI Alliance legal terms.
MIPI Alliance would like to welcome 13 companies that joined the Alliance or upgraded their membership from 1 October to 31 December. We look forward to working with these companies joining the 300+ MIPI members worldwide developing and implementing MIPI specifications.
Implementers of the most widely used camera interface in mobile and other markets now have a new toolset to support their interoperability and conformance efforts. The MIPI Camera Working Group recently released conformance test suites (CTSs) for the four most recent versions of its MIPI Camera Serial Interface 2 (MIPI CSI-2℠) specification.
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.
MIPI Alliance has recently released new versions of its two physical layer specifications designed for high-performance, cost-optimized cameras and displays. MIPI C-PHYSM v2.0, released in September 2019, and MIPI D-PHYSM v2.5, released in October, introduce key new features that make the specifications applicable for expanded Internet of Things (IoT) use cases along with many mobile use cases.
MIPI Alliance made its mark in Taipei from 14 to 18 October, with a week packed full of activities – from a MIPI I3C Interop Workshop, to Member Meeting #52 with more than a dozen working groups collaborating at face-to-face meetings, to MIPI DevCon Taipei capping off the week with a day of technical education and member demos.
