The MIPI Alliance Standard for UniPro SM (Unified Protocol) defines an application-agnostic scalable layered protocol for interconnecting devices and components within mobile systems such as cellular telephones, handheld computers, digital cameras, etc. UniPro allows these devices and components to exchange data at high data rates, with low pin count and at low energy per transferred bit.
The networking capabilities of UniPro enable the emergence of sub-systems such as (but not limited to): memory sub-systems, connectivity sub-systems or imaging sub-systems thus driving a faster time-to-market for the integration of innovative solutions and new technologies. Furthermore the networking capabilities of UniPro enable efficient sharing of resources in a multi-master environment while keeping low power consumption.
UniPro is being used in multiple applications areas such as mass storage with JEDEC UFS and imaging such as the next generation Camera Serial Interface (CSI-3) and the upcoming Display Serial Interface DSI-2.
UniPro is a layered protocol architecture that follows the
The WG is also updating the UniPro testing framework and has created an Application Note. The UniPro testing framework includes the following documents:
• Conformance Test Suite (CTS)
• Protocol Implementation Conformance Statement (PICS)
UniPro v1.41 conformance and interoperability workshops between member companies are currently ongoing. See the MIPI Testing Page for more information on MIPI test events and test documents.
UniPro specification v1.41.00 and prior are comprised of both a text document and a formal normative reference model (SDL).
