    MIPI Alliance Releases Enhanced I3C Host Controller Interface

    The new MIPI I3C Host Controller Interface (MIPI I3C HCI℠ ) v1.1 specification was recently released to MIPI Alliance members as well as nonmembers, with new functionality that facilitates broader use of the MIPI I3C® interface and helps developers and the open source community integrate the latest I3C-based peripheral components into their designs.

    In this blog post, we recap the benefits of the I3C interface, explain how the HCI specification helps developers and provide an overview of the updates in this latest version.

    MIPI I3C Basic in JEDEC DDR5: A Sum Greater Than Its Parts

    JEDEC Solid State Technology Association (JEDEC) and MIPI Alliance have enjoyed a long liaison relationship of collaboration, as the two organizations serve some similar but also different applications and ecosystems. When we work together closely—as in development of JEDEC’s newly announced JESD79-5 DDR5 (Double Date Rate 5) standard—it results in better outcomes and broader market opportunities for all of our combined stakeholders.

    MIPI I3C v1.1 – A Conversation with Ken Foust

    Q: What makes the newly released MIPI I3C® v1.1 different from v1.0, and why is it important to developers?

    I see Version 1.0 as setting a new baseline. We came together to make an interface that would dramatically simplify the integration of sensors and address many of the key pain points that all of us in the industry were dealing with when working with I2C and SPI interfaces. We think we accomplished that with v1.0—anywhere sensors are used, MIPI I3C belongs. Now v1.1 is the first update to build on that foundation.

    MIPI DisCo for I3C Streamlines Software Integration for I3C Components

    The MIPI Discovery and Configuration (MIPI DisCoSM) Base Specification, which simplifies the software integration of external devices in mobile and mobile-influenced systems, now forms the basis of a new specification for integrating MIPI I3C® components.

    The growing range of DisCo specifications define the properties of MIPI devices and components, and conveys those properties to operating systems in an architecturally defined manner. The DisCo Base Specification, along with class specifications for various MIPI interfaces, eliminates much of the work of developing and implementing drivers for external devices. For system developers, this can shorten time to market and cut system development cost.
