    Advancing Automotive Interoperability, Choice and Economies of Scale via Collaboration with IEEE

    The MIPI A-PHYSM v1.0 specification, which has been available to MIPI Alliance members since September 2020, is now positioned for wider availability to the broader automotive ecosystem.

    As detailed in an October 13 press release, under terms of a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with IEEE, the A-PHY serializer-deserializer (SerDes) specification will be put forward for adoption as an IEEE standard, which will result in broader global availability and, ultimately greater interoperability, choice and economies of scale for the global automotive industry.

    MIPI A-PHY v1.0 SerDes Specification for Automotive Now Available

    Innovations in automotive safety, automation and connectivity, including advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS), comprehensive in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) and autonomous driving systems, are transforming vehicle design. New models coming in the next few years will have more high-resolution cameras, more advanced radar and lidar sensors, and more high-definition displays. All this will depend on reliable high-performance connections between sensors and displays and onboard computers, with functional safety and security built in.

    MIPI A-PHY Featured in Autonomous Vehicle Technology

    Improvements to driver assistance and self-driving systems hinge on collecting and using more data about a car’s surroundings. However, most vehicle networks were not built to support advanced features such as lane-keeping systems and multiple dash displays. As the industry moves toward self-driving and highly automated vehicles, automakers need new interfaces that can support new vehicle connectivity needs.

    Protocols, PHYs and the MIPI Alliance IPR Terms

    Written by: Brad Biddle, MIPI Counsel
    9 January 2020

    MIPI Alliance periodically receives questions about how its legal policies apply in different circumstances. This post addresses questions we’ve received about the requirement that MIPI protocols be used only with MIPI PHYs. The post explains existing policy. It does not change any current MIPI Alliance legal terms.
