    MIPI Alliance Releases Study Validating the Use of Compression for Automotive Displays

    Automotive display requirements are evolving rapidly as trends in connectivity, automation, sharing and electrification demand that automakers incorporate a growing number of larger and higher-resolution displays inside their vehicles. The use of visually lossless image compression will be essential to meet the bandwidth demands of these in-vehicle automotive displays and to ensure display connectivity solutions meet the stringent safety, reliability, power, weight and electromagnetic compatibility requirements demanded by the automotive industry.

    MIPI Security Investigation Group – A Conversation with Philip Hawkes and Rick Wietfeldt

    Formed in 2019, the MIPI Security Investigation Group (Security IG) was established to provide recommendations for a scalable, uniform MIPI security framework and ongoing support model, as well as to offer guidance to MIPI working groups on overarching security requirements, guiding principles and policies, and external threats. 

    Recently the group achieved a significant milestone in evaluating approaches to secure systems-on-chips (SoCs) in automotive electronic control units (ECUs) to peripherals such as cameras, sensors and displays in support of MIPI’s automotive work. As part of this effort, the Security IG conducted a technical and strategic evaluation of DMTF’s Security Protocol and Data Model (SPDM) architecture, which provides message exchange, sequence diagrams, message formats and other relevant semantics for authentication, firmware measurement and certificate management. The evaluation confirmed that the SPDM architecture meets MIPI’s requirements for this use case. We sat down with Philip Hawkes and Rick Wietfeldt, co-chairs of the Security IG, to learn more.

    MIPI A-PHY Moves Ahead in IEEE Adoption Process

    Written by: Peter Lefkin, MIPI Managing Director
    1 March 2021

    Update: MIPI A-PHY was adopted as an IEEE standard in June 2021 and is also available as IEEE 2977-2021.

    MIPI A-PHY℠ v1.0 has now crossed an important milestone on its path toward adoption as an IEEE standard.

    On 10 February, the MIPI A-PHY adoption PAR (Project Authorization Request), known as "IEEE P2977™ Adoption of MIPI Alliance Specification for A-PHY Interface (A-PHY) Version 1.0," was approved by the IEEE Standards Association (IEEE SA) Standards Board, following a recommendation by the organization's New Standards Committee. The IEEE SA Corporate Advisory Group served as the project's sponsor.
