    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 A-PHY Moves Ahead in IEEE Adoption Process

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

    A Deep Dive into MIPI A-PHY and its Benefits for Automotive

    Written by: Hezi Saar, MIPI Alliance Board Member
    12 January 2021

    MIPI interface protocols are widely used in automotive to connect cameras, sensors, displays and other components to automotive systems on chips (SoCs). In a previous blog post, I detailed the automotive applications of MIPI CSI-2® and MIPI DSI-2SM, MIPI’s camera and display protocols, which have been broadly implemented in the industry. In September, the Alliance released MIPI A-PHYSM v1.0, the first asymmetric industry-standard, long-reach serializer-deserializer (SerDes) physical layer interface. In this post, I'll take a deep dive into MIPI A-PHY and provide a look at its key features and how they benefit some common automotive applications.

    The Power of Collaboration — A Conversation with Joel Huloux

    Recently MIPI Alliance announced it had signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with IEEE, the world's largest technical professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for the benefit of humanity. Under the agreement, MIPI A-PHYSM v1.0 will be brought forward through the adoption process to become an IEEE standard. In this Q&A, Joel Huloux, chairman of MIPI Alliance, discusses the significance of this announcement and the importance of liaison relationships, and shares a look ahead at what’s to come for MIPI Alliance.
