MIPI Alliance members work diligently to develop and release new versions of interface specifications for mobile and mobile-influenced devices to anticipate new applications and market needs. Recently MIPI released MIPI RFFE v3.0SM and completed development of MIPI A-PHYSM v1.0. Both are notable achievements for MIPI members and the broader ecosystems they serve.
You can learn more about the specifications in these recent industry articles.
MIPI RFFE v3.0 in the news
Earlier this year, MIPI Alliance released the newest iteration of the widely deployed MIPI RF Front End Control Interface, MIPI RFFE v3.0, which is designed to deliver the tighter timing precision and reduced latencies that manufacturers need today to advance the rollout of 5G around the world.
In recent articles in Embedded Computing Design and Electronic Design, Jim Ross, chair of the MIPI RF Front-End Control Working Group, shared how the third version of the world’s de facto standard interface for control of the RF front end will help developers and system architects leverage the 5G network moving forward.
Along with outlining the significant technical advances MIPI RFFE v3.0 will bring for 5G device designers, the articles also take a look at MIPI RFFE’s various trigger features, how they relate to the timing-control requirements of 5G and what the working group is planning for the next version of the interface specification.
In addition to the release of MIPI RFFE v3.0, MIPI also recently announced that development has been completed on MIPI A-PHY v1.0, a long-reach serializer-deserializer (SerDes) physical layer interface for automotive applications.
In a recent Connector Supplier article, MIPI Alliance shared how this new specification will help support advanced connectivity within ADAS, in-vehicle infotainment and other surround-sensor applications.
The article also takes a deep dive into the need for a standardized SerDes specification for automotive applications, the physical properties and design features of MIPI A-PHY v1.0, the features that will enable the specification to operate in harsh automotive environments, and more.
