    The Wires Behind Wireless

    New Ethernet Adaptation Layer Adds Control Option to MIPI A-PHY Automotive Networks

    To satisfy the demand for both advanced safety features and better driver and passenger experiences, automakers are adding more displays, larger in size and with greater resolutions, to the digital cockpit. This trend has created a need for more in-vehicle wiring, which in turn adds cost, weight and complexity to new car designs.

    This is one of the many challenges being addressed by the introduction of MIPI Automotive SerDes Solutions, or MASS for short, which offers a standardized framework for integrating cameras and displays with their associated electronic control units (ECUs) using the MIPI A-PHYSM asymmetric SerDes physical layer as its foundation.

    Updated A-PHY SerDes Interface Offers Faster Data Rates, Additional Implementation Options

    To kick off the new year, MIPI Alliance recently announced the adoption of A-PHYSM v1.1, the latest version of the automotive serializer-deserializer (SerDes) physical-layer interface, doubling the maximum downlink data rate from 16 Gbps to 32 Gbps, doubling the available uplink data rate and providing manufacturers with additional implementation options. 

    The new version gives OEMs and suppliers more flexibility to support rapidly growing requirements for automotive displays and sensors (cameras, lidars and radars). It enhances their ability to implement next-generation applications in advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS), digital cockpits, in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) and autonomous driving systems (ADS).

    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 Releases Introductory Guide to MIPI Automotive SerDes Solutions (MASS)

    Automotive technology is advancing faster than ever, and electronic components have never been more central to the design and success of new vehicles. Advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) and rapidly evolving in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) platforms are the stars of many new models, while autonomous driving systems (ADS) are a major focus of development. 

    These innovations require more cameras, sensors, displays and computing resources from a growing ecosystem of suppliers, and the data interfaces linking these components play an essential role in safety and security, which are core requirements of the new onboard systems. Standardization of these interfaces and the promise of interoperability will be essential for automotive innovation to flourish.
