Webinar rescheduled: Due to technical issues with our web conferencing platform, this webinar was recheduled from 4 March to 11 March at 8:30 am PDT. Register »

Join MIPI Automotive Working Group chair Matt Ronning (Sony Corporation) and PHY Working Group vice chair and A-PHY Subgroup lead Raj Kumar Nagpal (Synopsys, Inc.) at 8:30 a.m. PDT on Wednesday, 11 March, for an in-depth look at the forthcoming MIPI A-PHY℠.

"Advancing In-Vehicle Connectivity for ADAS and Other Automotive Applications," will include an overview of the factors driving A-PHY development, as well as the specification's structure, topologies, key features and fit with other wired connectivity technologies. Also included will be a discussion of how the specification can be leveraged in the near term as well as in the future.

MIPI A-PHY is a high-speed, “long-reach“ (up to 15m) physical layer specification that will allow native connections to the widely implemented CSI-2℠ and DSI-2℠ protocols. The goal is to provide the automotive industry with a standardized approach that offers both high performance and simplified integration, along with the flexibility needed to suit a broad range of speed and design needs. An advanced draft is already available to Contributor members, and MIPI A-PHY v1.0 is expected to be adopted mid-year.
