    Latest IoT Kits with MIPI Camera, Display, I3C and JEDEC UFS Give Developers a Fast Track For Designs

    It's been more than 12 months since we published our last blog post highlighting popular IoT developer kits that support MIPI camera and display interfaces. Since then, a number of new kits have been launched that support other MIPI interfaces, including MIPI I3C® (the successor to the I2C interface) and JEDEC Universal Flash Storage (which leverages MIPI M-PHY® and MIPI UniPro®), in addition to the already widely adopted MIPI CSI-2® camera and MIPI DSI®/DSI-2 display interfaces.  

    This blog highlights some of the notable kits new to the market over the last year (and one particular kit missing from the previous post). I’ll explain which MIPI interfaces they support and describe how the use of these interfaces can benefit the IoT developer community.

    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.

    Virtual Workshop To Explore MIPI Automotive SerDes Solutions Framework

    Planning is well underway for the MIPI Automotive Workshop, coming up on 17 November 2021. The half-day virtual event, designed to provide a comprehensive look at the latest MIPI automotive specifications and initiatives, will benefit automotive developers, system architects and engineering managers who are focused on the design, development, integration and test of next-generation automotive E/E architectures.

    MIPI Lifetime Achievement Award and MIPI Camera Working Group – A Conversation with Tom Kopet

    Q: Congrats on your recent MIPI Lifetime Achievement award. Tell us how long you’ve been involved with MIPI, which working groups you participate in and a bit about your background.

    Thank you! It’s still surprising to me that I’ve been involved with MIPI for over 15 years. My technical career began about 40 years ago in the aerospace defense business, initially focused on DSP and image processing software and algorithms, and later moving to digital chip architectures and systems for applications such as high-speed IEEE floating point arithmetic and real-time MPEG video compression. I joined Micron Imaging in 2003, the precursor to Aptina Imaging, and image sensors have been my focus since then. Aptina was acquired by ON Semiconductor in 2014, and I’ve had the privilege of successively representing Micron, Aptina, and ON as a MIPI Camera Working Group (CWG) member since the early days of the group. I’ve served as CWG vice chair for the last four years or so. I also occasionally participate in the PHY working group and generally try to keep up with most MIPI technical activities.

    Developer Kits with MIPI Camera And Display Support Provide a Fast Track for Designs

    Advanced high-resolution cameras and displays are at the core of many new electronic devices, enabling continuously more sophisticated vision-based services and enhanced user experiences. Integrated cameras and displays can now be found in a wide array of devices, from traditional devices such as smartphones, tablets and PCs, to a new wave of connected devices, as described in the MIPI white paper: Enabling the IoT Opportunity.

    Developing Vision Systems with Dissimilar Sensors

    Written by: Lattice Semiconductor
    12 August 2020

    As designers are challenged to integrate an increasing number of sensors in products, aggregating different data streams from dissimilar sensors (e.g., imaging cameras, lidar, radar) is the new normal for input/output-(I/O) constrained application processors. A central challenge across many use cases—such as drones, AR/VR, and automotive—is how to get multiple data streams into the I/O-constrained system-on-chip (SoC) processor.
