Featuring more than a dozen sessions focused on MIPI specifications in mobile, automotive and IoT applications, as well as new camera and display specifications, security initiatives, MIPI I3C® use cases and more, this year's virtual MIPI DevCon will offer a comprehensive education program with new insights into specification implementation, industry advancements and trends in the broader MIPI ecosystem.
In the closing session of MIPI DevCon 2020, a panel of IoT experts convened to assess the current state of the “Internet of Things” and answer fundamental questions such as, “Is the IoT transitioning from hype to reality?”
Not only did MIPI DevCon 2020 draw a global audience of nearly 350 attendees on 22-23 September, but the conference presentations and member demos will continue to offer developers and implementers a wealth of resources long after the live event. Whether you missed this week's webcasts or want to review key information from a presentation you attended, all the sessions and demo recordings are now available on demand.
From 5G to automotive to IoT, the session topics on the MIPI DevCon 2020 Agenda span a range of interests in mobile and beyond. An impressive lineup of speakers – industry experts, MIPI working group leaders and implementers of MIPI specifications – will deliver in-depth technical presentations and participate in panel discussions at the virtual event on 22-23 September, 07:00 to 11:00 (PDT).
Q: You were recently presented with a MIPI Lifetime Achievement Award for the instrumental role you play as chair and vice chair for MIPI DevCon, among other MIPI contributions. Congratulations!
Thank you very much. It's an honor to be recognized.
Q: Tell us about how DevCon got started, how you got involved, and how it has evolved.
We've been holding an annual MIPI Developers Conference (DevCon) since 2016. Before that, we frequently held “demo days” in conjunction with MIPI member meetings. These events typically featured several presentations, along with tabletop demos conducted by member companies, and we'd invite local members, nonmembers and the media.
MIPI Alliance held its fifth developers conference on 18 October in Taipei, drawing nearly 200 participants to hear presentations from MIPI working group leaders and technical experts, tour member demos and interact with other developers and implementers of MIPI specifications.
