    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 in IoT: Enabling the Smart Home

    In this latest installment of our MIPI in IoT blog series, we'll examine the use of MIPI specifications in the smart home market, including a closer look at the features of key MIPI specifications in IoT and how they can meet the specific requirements of smart home devices.

     
    Overview of the smart home market

    According to a recent analyst report, global consumer spending on smart home hardware, services and installation totaled $86 billion in 2020, slightly lower than predicted due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, growth and spending on smart home services is expected to bounce back in 2021 to $123 billion and continue to grow at a 15% CAGR (compound annual growth rate) to $173 billion by 2025. Also by 2025, it is predicted that more than 400 million homes worldwide—or 19% of all households—will have at least one type of smart system installed, such as home security, home control and automation, home entertainment systems and/or smart appliances.

    MIPI in IoT: Enabling the Enterprise Drone Market

    The scope of the Internet of Things (IoT) is vast, covering numerous consumer and enterprise market sectors. For a closer look at how MIPI Alliance specifications support growth in IoT, we're taking a look at a different IoT market sector each month. In this third post in the series, we’ll examine the use of MIPI specifications in the enterprise drone market.

     
    Overview of enterprise drones market 

    In 2021, the European Union Aviation Safety Agency and US Federal Aviation Administration issued new regulations, clarifying the legal landscape for drone usage and setting the goal of integrating drones into existing airspace while maintaining the necessary safety levels. With the release of these rules and similar rules in other countries, the global enterprise drone market is expected to grow at a significant rate over the next decade.
